Variety exclusively learned the Emmy campaign strategies for key actors: Walton Goggins, Ella Purnell and Aaron Moten.

Goggins, who plays mutant gunslinger Cooper Howard, aka The Ghoul, and Purnell, who plays young Vault Dweller Lucy, are both up for the lead acting categories. Moten, who plays Maximus, the squire of the Brotherhood of Steel, is aiming for a supporting role nod.

Jonathan Nolan, the show’s creator and director, and brother of Best Director Oscar winner Christopher Nolan (“Oppenheimer”), plans to submit the pilot episode titled “The End” for Emmy consideration , which will also be the entry for Geneva writers. Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner.

It’s been more than a decade since Goggins, known for his role in “Justified,” last received an Emmy nomination in 2011. He will compete against veteran actors like Gary Oldman (“Slow Horses”) and his Prime Video counterpart Donald Glover. (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) this year. Purnell, best known for her role in Showtime’s “Yellowjackets,” faces stiff competition in the leading actress category alongside Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone. Still, Purnell could end up at the ceremony, especially after Bella Ramsey, another young actor, got a deserved nomination for fellow video game adaptation “The Last of Us.”

Moten has been a rising star with roles in HBO’s “The Night Of,” Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle” and most notably Netflix’s “Disjointed.” The supporting drama actor race is crowded with multiple men from the same series, including “The Morning Show” and “The Crown.” While campaigning alongside Moisés Arias, who plays Lucy’s brother Norm, the risk of vote division isn’t as great as with other contenders.

As Hank, Lucy’s father and supervisor of Vault 33, two-time Emmy nominee Kyle MacLachlan (“Twin Peaks”) will star alongside Michael Emerson as guest drama actor. Veteran actress Dale Dickey, as Ma June, will get her shot at guest drama actress.

With a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 92%, “Fallout” is well received and could emulate the Emmy success of “The Last of Us.” Aramid Tinubu from Variety praised the show for its unique approach and compelling story, saying, “Nolan and Joy wisely chose to avoid an outright adaptation. Instead, they constructed an original story within the game universe. Additionally, unexpected stylistic choices, including archaic technology, a soundtrack packed with hits by Ella Fitzgerald and Bing Crosby, and strange mid-20th century dialogue, contrast with disturbingly brutal deaths, making ‘Fallout’ a sensory feast.”

The eight episodes of “Fallout” will premiere on Prime Video on April 11. Below you will find the full list of 27 entries. Categories are subject to change and actors and artisans have the opportunity to submit themselves for consideration. It is known that ‘Game of Thrones’ actors Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) and Carice Van Houten (Melisandre) have signed on for the final season of the HBO fantasy series, and have subsequently all been nominated in their respective films. categories.
