CBS All Access Wants Emmys For Star Trek: Discovery

CBS All Access has sent out a screener set of the first season of Star Trek: Discovery to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in hopes of placing the show on the Emmy Awards ballot.

All fifteen Season One episodes are on this screener set, which is unusual. Most times, only “select episodes” of a show are sent, not an entire season.

CBS All Access is looking for consideration in the following categories:

  • Outstanding Drama Series
  • Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama: Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Doug Jones as Saru
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Jason Isaacs as Gabriel Lorca
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Anthony Rapp as Paul Stamets
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Shazad Latif as Ash Tyler/Vok
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Wilson Cruz as Hugh Culber
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama: Michelle Yeoh as Phillipa Georgiou
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama: Mary Wiseman as Sylvia Tilly
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama: Mary Chieffo as L’Rell
  • Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series
  • Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series

But that’s not all. CBS All Access is also interested in Creative Arts Emmys. Proposed are:

  • Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series: James Frain as Sarek
  • Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series: Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd
  • Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series: Kenneth Mitchell as Kol
  • Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series: Jayne Brook as Katrina Cornwell
  • Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special
  • Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
  • Outstanding Visual Effects
  • Outstanding Production Design For a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program
  • Outstanding Main Title Design
  • Outstanding Music Composition For a Series (Original Dramatic Score)
  • Outstanding Cinematography For a Single-Camera Series (One Hour)

Nominations for the Emmy Awards will be announced June 12, and the actual awards ceremony will take place in mid-September.
