Could Steven Moffat’s Final Years As Showrunner Get Him An Emmy?

‘Doctor Who’ a show, which has been recognized a lot of times by BAFTA and the TV Choice Awards has recently been put forward to compete for the much Coveted US based Emmy Award.

This Emmy nod should it go through could make history for ‘Doctor Who’ in terms of its place on American Primetime.

With Emmy campaigning reaching a fever pitch, it has been revealed that BBC America has submitted the science-fiction classic to compete for the coveted television awards.

BBC America – now the show’s co-producer – chose not to put Doctor Who forward in the Best Drama Series category (where it would likely face off with behemoths like Game of Thrones’, ‘Homeland’ and ‘House of Cards’), Peter Capaldi is up for consideration as Lead Actor in a Drama.

The penultimate episode of the shows ninth series ‘Heaven Sent’ has been nominated for Emmy consideration for writer Steven Moffat and Director Rachel Talalay.

Moffat is no stranger to the Awards. A few years back he won in the ‘Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special ‘ for his ‘Sherlock’ episode ‘His Last Vow’.

Nominations for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards are announced in a live telecast on July 14 – with the ceremony itself airing on ABC on September 18.

‘Doctor Who’ will remain off air until Christmas 2016, but will be back with a full new series in 2017.

    Excellent! Fingers crossed, especially for Capaldi. He really deserves it. He carried the last couple of seasons in spite of some questionable narrative choices.
