‘Atlanta’ and ‘black-ish’ both earned nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series while ‘black-ish’ stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson each scored one for Outstanding Lead in a Comedy Series.

Issa Rae also earned a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on ‘Insecure.’
