The statements are being crafted. TV professionals are setting their alarm clocks. Actors are preparing anecdotes or for disappointment. It's almost here, the 2018 Emmy nominations are almost here.

There will be some newcomers now that Veep, Better Call Saul and Master of None are out of the running, but Game of Thrones is back with a vengeance. The Handmaid's Tale is poised to continue to clean up with nominations, but will anybody from the cast break through who didn't in the first season?
