After the nominations were announced, Emmy-related tweets quickly began piling up, including many questioning Purser's nod.

While we wait to see how the show addresses Barb's loss, it's fun to see the actress earning recognition for her iconic role. In a wonderful and surprising outcome, Shannon Purser aka Barb (!) scored an Emmy nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of the fan favorite character.

The American's extra experience seemed to tell in the key moments throughout the match. In the first set, games went with serves till four-all before Venus upped the ante.

Creators, writers and directors of the show, Matt and Ross Duffer aka The Duffer Brothers, responded to the unexpected nomination for Purser with Entertainment Weekly. She will go up against Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black), Ann Dowd (The Handmaid's Tale), Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid's Tale) and Thandie Newton (Westworld).

Alec Baldwin's Trump impersonation, Kate McKinnon's portrayal of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway and Melissa McCarthy's recurring guest spot as an enraged White House spokesman Sean Spicer all earned them Emmy nominations. The young actress has also won over the hearts of fans for her honesty on social media after coming out as bisexual in April.

Stocks edge higher in early trading; oil rises
A deluge of economic data is scheduled for Friday, including latest figures on inflation, retail sales and consumer spending. US stocks opened flat on Friday as investors digested a mixed batch of quarterly earnings out of a trio of major banks.

Still, you know what they say - it's an honor to be nominated, and nobody on the internet can take that away from Shannon Purser, no matter how undeserving they think Barb might be.

After the apparently ignored supernatural death of the Netflix series' bespectacled third wheel, a massive Twitter campaign was launched - with the hashtag #JusticeForBarb - to demand that the show bring her back. The actress also starred in the hit series #Riverdale as Ethel Muggs, which sneakily channeled her experiences on Stranger Things. In total, the show was nominated for 18 categories.

Chelsea 'agree £40m Tiemoue Bakayoko deal'
Bakayoko's brother has hinted where his brother will be playing next season. The 22-year-old is expected to cost Chelsea just under £40m.

Purser, 20, achieved viral fame last summer after "Stranger Things" fans realized that the show's police department hardly mentioned the disappearance of her character, Barb, while the entire town rallied around finding another missing kid, Will. Winners will be revealed in September.
