After Bridgerton became a massive breakout hit for Netflix, the Shondaland series scored big with the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards, earning a total of 12 nominations. The Regency drama is up for Outstanding Drama Series with Regé-Jean Page receiving the series' only acting nod.
"It’s a joy to be seen. 12 @televisionacad Emmy nominations for the dazzling group of artists @bridgertonnetflix," Page reacted on Instagram. "Another for dreamy lovers in full technicolour, cause they just don’t make ‘em like @sylvieslove anymore."
He added, "And 1 happy, tired boy who gets to be a part of it all, Thank you."
Adapted from Julia Quinn’s best-selling romance novels by longtime Rhimes collaborator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton is an expansive ensemble drama set in 1800s London where one’s place in society matters and scandal must be avoided at all costs.
At the center of season 1 was the eldest Bridgerton daughter, Daphne (Dynevor), and her courtship with Simon Bassett (Page). Elsewhere, Anthony Bridgerton (Bailey) had to manage affairs of his own while Penelope Featherington (Coughlan) helped Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie) try to find out who was behind the scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews, who scored a nomination for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance.)
