The Leftovers: Damon Lindelof's last-minute Emmy campaign promises Justin Theroux sans sweatpants

Posted on

With the series finale having aired earlier this month, there’s one thing left for The Leftovers to do: get itself some Emmy nominations!

Over the course of its critically acclaimed three season run, the HBO drama hasn’t received a single Primetime Emmy nomination. But on the final day of Emmy voting Monday, series co-creator Damon Lindelof made a last-ditch effort to change that with social media push making some rather tantalizing promises. In a series of posts on Instagram, Lindelof has shared several Leftovers memes that implied Justin Theroux will get naked if the show is nominated for an Emmy.

“Nominate Theroux and the sweatpants go away. #LastDayOfEmmyVoting,” reads one of the memes Lindelof posted. The showrunner also went to bat for other members of the cast members Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Ann Dowd, Kevin Carroll, and director Mimi Leder.

Check out the hilarious Emmy campaign below:
