They say sex sells, but can that also lead to multiple rewards?
That’s a question pop culture fans will soon find the answer to when the winners of the 2021 Emmy Awards are announced on Sunday, September 19.
Netflix’s hit series Bridgerton is nominated in several major categories including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Direction for a Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series thanks to Régé-Jean Pagethe performance of Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.
The historical drama follows a Regency-era aristocratic family as they try to find love, but the show’s scorching scenes are the real draw. Many viewers including superfan Kim kardashian couldn’t stop talking about those NSFW moments in multiple episodes. After all, not all shows feature a sex scene on an orchestral version of Taylor Swift‘s “The wildest dreams”.
Bridgerton isn’t the first show to be praised for its storylines and sensual moments. Issa Rae and the cast of Unsafe, who has featured multiple romantic stories, has received multiple Emmy nominations over the years.
