Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday – but not everyone is happy.
Shannon Purser, the actress who played Barb in ‘Stranger Things’ Season One, scored her first Emmy nod…and almost immediately after the nominations were announced, Emmy-related tweets started flooding Twitter, many of them questioning Purser’s nod.
The problem? Screen time – as in, there’s not much of it to go on. Different Twitter users estimated that she appeared for “like, 90 seconds”.
The most popular complaint, however, was the fact that Purser was nominated over other actors, including her own co-star Winona Ryder, who appeared for……well, a lot more than, like, 90 seconds.
Boy, I can’t imagine what TV fans will do if Purser actually WINS. Aw well, stranger things have happened. (…see what I did there?) ~ Jason
