The nominations for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced on Tuesday and Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 4 bagged 13 Primetime Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, but unfortunately, Sadie Sink and Millie Bobby Brown were not nominated for their outstanding work in the series.
Fans of the show were confused as Sydney Sweeney managed to bag a nomination
The two stars from Stranger Things were submitted in the “supporting actress in a drama” series category, but the nominations went to Patricia Arquette (Severance), Julia Garner (Ozark), Jung Ho-Yeon (Squid Game), Christina Ricci (Yellowjackets), Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul), J. Smith-Cameron (Succession), Sarah Snook (Succession) and Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria) instead.
Stranger Things fans expressed their disappointment on social media
The fans of the show were surprised as this was unexpected. People on Twitter shared their opinions on the nominations and most of them claimed that Sadie Sink’s work in the show was phenomenal and that she should’ve been nominated.

Millie has said like 50 words the whole season, so even if we enjoyed the show, let’s not act like it was Emmy worthy. Sadie on the other hand was phenomenal.

The 13 nominations were given to the first seven episodes (Volume 1)
Fans still hope that the two will be recognized for their work in the next Emmys as the 13 nominations the show received this year were for the first seven episodes (Volume 1), and Episodes 8 and 9 (Volume 2) were not released until after the submission deadline. So hopefully, Volume 2 of Stranger Things 4 will compete in next year’s Emmy race.
Season 3 of the show got eight nominations, which was the least in the history of Stranger Things, and to date, the show has bagged a total of 51 Emmy nominations and seven wins.
Stranger Things Season 4 is now streaming on Netflix.
