Alberta-Shot THE LAST OF US With Pedro Pascal & Bella Ramsey Scores 24 Emmy Noms

HBO phenom The Last of Us has racked up 24 Emmy nominations for its first season, including ultra-competitive nominations for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Performances by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey..

The Alberta-shot dystopian video game adaption is recognized in most categories, but with some surprising omissions: no nominations for cinematography or stunt coordination.

The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed by a fungal pandemic. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
