The Yellowstone prequel 1883 was nominated in three categories at the 2022 Emmy Awards. It received two nods for Outstanding Cinematography For A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie, with its episodes “1883” and “Lightning Yellow Hair” being the ones nominated. The show was also nominated for Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Or Anthology Series, Movie Or Special (Original Dramatic Score).
Despite these nominations, many fans felt the Emmys snubbed the series. Fans were especially upset since stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sam Elliott, Isabel May, and LaMonica Garrett were not nominated in any of the acting categories.

The 2022 Emmy Awards were held on Monday night (September 12). So did 1883 emerge from the ceremony victorious?
Unfortunately, no. 1883 did not win in any of the categories it was nominated in.
Dopesick‘s episode “Breakthrough Pain” won the award for Outstanding Cinematography For A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie over the two episodes of 1883 that were nominated. The White Lotus‘ “Mysterious Monkeys” won the award for Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Or Anthology Series, Movie Or Special (Original Dramatic Score).
This was the one and only chance 1883 had of winning any Emmys. The show was a limited series, so there will be no future episodes.
But 1883 is getting a limited expansion that will focus on the real-life Western lawman Bass Reeves. The Yellowstone universe is also expanding with another prequel series, 1923, which is aiming for a December premiere.
Although 1883 did not receive any Emmy Awards, fans of the series know how amazing it was. Watch one of the show’s standout scenes below.
