Nominations for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards have been announced during a virtual event that took place on Tuesday, July 28.
Leslie Jones, a two-time nominee herself, hosted the nominations which was live-streamed on the Emmys’s website, Facebook, and their YouTube page.
Laverne Cox (Inventing Anna), Josh Gad (Central Park), and Tatiana Maslany (Perry Mason) virtually joined her.
Netflix topped the list with the most nominations for a network with 160 nominations, 42 nominations more than their 2019 haul. HBO came in second with 160.
HBO‘s Watchmen proved to be a strong contender for a limited series/movie. The show, created by Damon Lindelof, scored the most nominations of any show this year – 26.
These nominations include the ones for cast members Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and more.
Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel came in second, in this regard, with 20 total, followed by Succession and Ozark with 18 nominations each.
Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek, which aired its final season earlier this year, led the major acting comedy categories, as well as Outstanding Comedy Series.
Stars Dan Levy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, and Annie Murphy all received acting nominations.
The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars live-action series, also scooped up an impressive 15 nominations. Though lead actor Pedro Pascal was snubbed, Giancarlo Esposito’s surprise appearance earned him a guest-starring acting nomination.
Jimmy Kimmel will host the 72nd annual Emmy Awards ceremony — which, despite widespread industry postponements to combat the spread of COVID-19, is scheduled to air live Sunday, September 20 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
