I will breakdown the #Emmys nominations LIVE today!
Dear Emmy Awards: I will not choose between @AllisonBJanney and Jean Smart and you can't make me.
Three streaming series led the way, with Netflix’s “The Crown” and the Disney+ Star Wars action drama “The Mandalorian” each notching 24 nominations. The Disney+ Marvel series “WandaVision” had 23 nominations.
HBO, fueled by its new streaming service, HBO Max, led all networks with 130 nominations. Netflix was right behind with 129 nominations. Next was Disney+, which picked up 71 nominations in just its second year of existence.
The contenders in the best drama category are mostly from the streamers. They include the fourth season of “The Crown”; the second season of the “The Mandalorian”; a former best drama winner, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”; the freshman season of Netflix’s “Bridgerton”; Amazon’s “The Boys”; FX’s “Pose”; HBO’s recently canceled series “Lovecraft Country”; and NBC’s “This Is Us.”
In the comedy category, the Apple TV+ feel-good sports series “Ted Lasso,” starring Jason Sudeikis, scored a nomination, and is the favorite to win the category. It was joined by a pair of HBO Max original series: “The Flight Attendant” and “Hacks.” Kaley Cuoco of “The Flight Attendant” and Jean Smart of “Hacks” were each nominated for best actress in a comedy series. Other nominees in the comedy category included Hulu’s “PEN15” and three Netflix series: “Cobra Kai,” “Emily in Paris” and “The Kominsky Method.”
Only one nominee for best comedy — ABC’s “black-ish” — was from a cable or broadcast network, an all-time low.
Though the streaming services have collected plenty of nominations over the last nine years, big wins have been elusive.
The number of times a streamer has won best drama? That would be one, and it was accomplished four years ago when “The Handmaid’s Tale” took the crown. Number of best comedy winners? Just two. And for best limited series, which has arguably turned into the Emmys’ most exciting category? Zero.
And Netflix — despite investing billions in content over the last few years, and spending plenty of cash on Emmy campaigning — has never won the award in drama, comedy or best limited series, a dry spell that could come to an end this year.
The ceremony will be on Sept. 19 on CBS, and also available on the Paramount+ streaming service.
But it is 0 for 3 in the best drama race, and most of its Emmy wins have been in smaller categories like production design and costumes.
“The Crown” is the heavy favorite this year to finally win best drama for the show’s fourth season, and many of its actors — Josh O’Connor (lead actor in a drama) as Prince Charles, Emma Corrin (lead actress in a drama) as Princess Diana, Olivia Colman (lead actress in a drama) as Queen Elizabeth II, Gillian Anderson (supporting actress in a drama) as Margaret Thatcher, Helena Bonham Carter (supporting actress in a drama) as Princess Margaret, Emerald Fennell (supporting actress in a drama) as Camilla Parker Bowles and Tobias Menzies (supporting actor in a drama) as Prince Philip — landed nominations. This will be their last chance to win Emmys for their roles; the next season of “The Crown” will feature a new cast.
But it’s possible its hot streak could come to an end. HBO’s gritty crime drama “Mare of Easttown” also earned a nomination in the limited series category, as did another HBO series, “I May Destroy You.” Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s “The Underground Railroad” was nominated, and so was “WandaVision.” The HBO whodunit “The Undoing,” starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, was left off the list.
Best actress in a limited series may be the Emmys’ most-watched race. Kate Winslet (“Mare of Easttown”), Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Queen’s Gambit”), Michaela Coel (“I May Destroy You”), Cynthia Erivo (“Genius: Aretha”) and Elizabeth Olsen (“WandaVision”) all landed nominations in what many award prognosticators believe will be the most competitive category at the Emmys. Ms. Kidman was shut out for “The Undoing,” though Mr. Grant landed a nomination in the best actor race.
For the first time in at least a decade, the number of television series actually went down in 2020, a trend that has continued through the first half of this year. Submissions for the drama and comedy categories were down 30 percent this year, said a spokesman for the Television Academy.
Though the show will return to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CBS said that the show will have a “limited audience” of nominees and their guests.
CBS is hoping the Emmys will reverse a troubling trend for awards shows, which have seen record low ratings over the last year. And though last year’s mostly virtual Emmys ceremony was widely praised, the ratings result was the same: Only 6.1 million people watched, a low.
Tuesday’s nomination announcement was virtual, and hosted by a pair of Emmy winning actors: Ron Cephas Jones and his daughter, Jasmine Cephas Jones.

The Crown and The Mandalorian led the way with a whopping 24 nominations each, with WandaVision, Ted Lasso, and The Handmaid's Tale also coming in strong. And not to be forgotten, just a week after not being renewed for a second season by HBO, Lovecraft Country scared up 18 total nominations.
Last year's show went almost fully virtual amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year's ceremony — hosted by Cedric the Entertainer — will be more of a return to form with a limited live audience of nominees and their guests.
The Television Academy's Board of Governors recently announced a small but notable rule change for this year's Emmys to be more inclusive of gender-noncomforming individuals: A nominee or winner of any acting category can request they be recognized with the more gender-neutral title "Performer" on their nomination certificate and Emmy statuette, although the categories themselves relating to Actor and Actress won't change.
Check below for an extended list of this year's nominees, with the remaining categories available on the Emmys website.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Crown” tied with “The Mandalorian” for the most Emmy nominations Tuesday with 24 apiece, but the Marvel universe also got bragging rights with runner-up “WandaVision.”
The nominations reinforced the rapid rise of streaming, with the top-nominated scripted shows on services that largely emerged in the past two years. In the top three categories — drama, comedy and limited series — only the NBC show “This Is Us” snagged a nomination.
Netflix’s “The Crown” received its fourth nomination for best series, and is likely the streaming service’s best chance to win its first-ever top series trophy. The British royal drama moved closer to contemporary events with its version of the courtship and rocky marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin.
“These nominations represent the work done in television through the most challenging year I can think of,” TV academy chief executive Frank Scherma said before the first nominees were announced. “While many of us in our medium worked remotely throughout the last 18 months, I have to say it feels so good to be getting back on a set. Making great television is a collaborative group effort where the sum equals more than the parts, and I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed it.”
The nominees for best drama series are: “The Boys”; “Bridgerton”; “The Crown”; “The Handmaid’s Tale”; “Lovecraft Country”; “The Mandalorian”; “Pose”; “This Is Us.”
The nominees for best comedy series are: “black-ish”; “Cobra Kai”; “Emily in Paris”; “The Flight Attendant”; “Hacks”; “The Kominsky Method”; “PEN15”; “Ted Lasso.”
The nominees for best miniseries are: “The Queen’s Gambit”; “I May Destroy You”; “Mare of Easttown”; “The Underground Railroad”; “WandaVision.”
The nominees for best actress in a comedy series are: Aidy Bryant, “Shrill”; Jean Smart, “Hacks”; Kaley Cuoco, “The Flight Attendant”; Tracee Ellis Ross, “black-ish”; Allison Janney, “Mom.”
The nominees for best actor in a comedy series are: Anthony Anderson, “black-ish”; Michael Douglas, “The Kominsky Method”; William H. Macy, “Shameless”; Jason Sudeikis, “Ted Lasso”; Kenan Thompson, “Kenan.”
The nominees for best actress in a drama series are: Emma Corrin, “The Crown”; Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale”; Uzo Aduba, “In Treatment”; Olivia Colman, “The Crown”; Mj Rodriguez, “Pose”; Jurnee Smollett, “Lovecraft Country.”
The nominees for best actor in a drama series are: Sterling K. Brown, “This Is Us”; Jonathan Majors, “Lovecraft Country”; Josh O’Connor, “The Crown”; Regé-Jean Page, “Bridgerton”; Billy Porter, “Pose”; Matthew Rhys, “Perry Mason.”
The nominees for outstanding variety talk series are: “Conan”; “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah”; “Jimmy Kimmel Live”; “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”; “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Scherma and father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (“Blindspotting”) announced the nominees.
