More details about the show
Midnight Mass is set on a secluded island where bizarre and mysterious events occur after the arrival of a priest.
The official synopsis of the series on Netflix reads:
''The arrival of a charismatic young priest brings glorious miracles, ominous mysteries and renewed religious fervor to a dying town depserate to believe.''
The show received immense critical acclaim for its writing, characterization, tight storyline and thematic ambitions. It has a distinctly creepy atmosphere that fans of shows like The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor will certainly love.
The performances by the cast also received high praise from critics. Hamish Linklater, who essays the role of the charismatic priest, Father Hill, and Rahul Kohli, who plays Sheriff Hassan, were widely lauded on social media.
Other notable omissions at the 2022 Emmy nominations announcement
Apart from Midnight Mass, there were several other notable omissions in the 2022 Emmy nominations announcement. One of them was ABC's black-ish, which has won several Emmy awards in the past.
Another shocking snub was Apple TV+'s Pachinko. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kogonada, Pachinko focuses on the lives of a Korean immigrant family, depicting their struggles and challenges as they adapt to a foreign culture and a new life.
Many fans were also disappointed over actor Oscar Issac not being nominated for his performance in the Marvel series, Moon Knight.
The actor, however, did receive an Emmy nomination for his stunning performance in HBO's acclaimed marital drama, Scenes From A Marriage, which also stars Jessica Chastain. The show is based on the legendary Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman's TV series of the same name.
The nominees for the 74th Emmy Awards were announced on Tuesday.
