'This Is Us' Loses an Emmy Nomination in Costumes Category

This Is Us has lost one of its 11 nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards after it was determined that the show was ineligible in the category.

The show’s nomination in the Outstanding Costumes for a Contemporary Series, Limited Series or Movie has been revoked after it was determined that the episode submitted does not meet the qualifications.

To be eligible in the category, at least 51 percent of the action in the episode must take place within the past 25 years, but the season finale episode “Moonshadow,” which is what NBC submitted, features most of its action in the 1970s.

“Having reviewed the ‘Moonshadow’ episode of This Is Us, the Awards Committee noted that the entrant unfortunately miscalculated the proportion of scenes that were period versus contemporary,” the Television Academy told THR in a statement. “In fact, the episode is predominately period. The entry (and subsequent nomination) are thereby disqualified. The sixth-place vote-getter — now the fifth nomination — will be identified by the accountants and will be revealed when the Television Academy’s final round viewing platform opens on Monday.”

The show still has 10 nominations, including one for Outstanding Drama Series.
