Emmy Nominations 2021 Live Updates: How to Watch, Predictions and News

When do Emmy nominations come out 2021?

The nominations recognize TV projects released between June 1, 2020, and May 31, 2021. Los Angeles TimesWhen are the 2021 Emmy nominations announced?

The Television Academy is poised to reward streaming services when the nominations for the 73rd Emmy Awards are announced at 11:30 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday.

The streaming services have already made their mark at the Emmy Awards — last year Netflix set a record for the most nominations.

But following a year in which the pandemic forced many Americans to increasingly turn to on-demand streaming video for entertainment, the Television Academy is poised to reward streaming services in a big way when nominations for the 73rd Emmy Awards are announced at 11:30 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday. The ceremony will be on Sept. 19 on CBS, and also available on the Paramount+ streaming service.

The top contenders for the best drama category are mostly from the streamers. They are likely to include the fourth season of Netflix’s “The Crown”; the second season of the Disney+ Star Wars series “The Mandalorian”; a former best drama winner, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”; and the freshman season of Netflix’s “Bridgerton.”

In the comedy category, the Apple TV+ feel-good sports series “Ted Lasso,” starring Jason Sudeikis, appears to be a lock. It will likely be 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” will likely face off for best actress in a comedy series. It’s possible that the cable and broadcast networks could get just one or two nominees in the best comedy category, which would be 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 Crown” is widely regarded in the entertainment industry as the gold standard in television thanks to its lush production values and great cast.

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 as Prince Charles, Emma Corrin as Princess Diana, Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip — are expected to land nominations. This will be their last chance to win Emmys for their roles; the next season of “The Crown” will feature a new cast.

Cedric the Entertainer, the star of the CBS comedy, “The Neighborhood,” will be this year’s host.

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 will be virtual, and will be hosted by a pair of Emmy winning actors: Ron Cephas Jones and his daughter, Jasmine Cephas Jones.

Cedric The Entertainer to host 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards: 'It is an enormous honor'

Daily Mail 13 July, 2021 - 10:11am

By Justin Enriquez For Dailymail.com

Cedric The Entertainer is set to host the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The 57-year-old veteran comedian has been tapped by CBS and the Television Academy to serve as the master of ceremonies for the annual event taking place on September 19.

The 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be returning to their usual home of the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles.

The star-studded gala show will feature a limited in-person audience of nominees and their guests after last year's was a hybrid virtual affair.

The star of  The Neighborhood - real name Cedric Antonio Kyles - recorded a fun video of himself receiving the news.

He received an envelope like the one used at the show to announce the winners which read: 'The Emmy's host is Cedric The Entertainer.'

Cedric excitedly yelled the news before excitedly running off to tell his wife the happy news in the video posted by the CBS Twitter account.

He said in a statement: 'Since I was a little boy huddled up next to my grandmother, television has always been my reliable friend, so it is an enormous honor for me to host this year’s Emmy Awards.

'Throughout the roller-coaster of a year that we have all lived through, television has helped us stay connected as a society like never before.'

Cedric goes on to talk about how television has helped us grow as a society. 

He continued: 'It not only entertained us, but as it always has, it helped to open our eyes, educate us, and hopefully brought about a better understanding of who we are as a people. 

'I can’t wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year.'

No doubt he is in good hands as the executive producers of last year's show,  Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart, and director Hamish Hamilton are all set to return with Done + Dusted and Hudlin Entertainment producing.

Cedric has starred on CBS sitcom The Neighborhood since 2018 which just wrapped its third season in May.

The Missouri-native has been on television since the 90s as he starred in WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, hosted the 12th season of the daytime version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 2013-14, and even had a TV Land original series titled Soul Man from 2012 to 2016.

He also has starred in feature films including 2002's Barbershop, 2004's Johnson Family Vacation, 2005's Be Cool, and 2014's Top Five. Cedric has also done voice work for the Ice Age and Madagascar film series.

The Emmy nominations are out Tuesday, but who should really get a nod?

USA TODAY 13 July, 2021 - 10:11am

Plenty of great TV shows and actors will be nominated at the 2021 Emmys. But plenty will be left out. Here's who we think really deserves it

It's an honor to be nominated, but sometimes the right people don't get that honor. 

From the expected nominees, such as Jean Smart and "The Crown," to the admirable long shots  ("For All Mankind" and "Superstore"), we pick the TV shows and actors we'd like to see nominated in major categories. It may be a wish list, but it's a deserving one. 

"Mankind," Apple's underrated drama that posits what the world would look like if the Soviet Union had reached the moon first in 1969, had a masterful second season, drawing its alternate history world into huge conflicts and an emotional climax. It deserves a place with big-name dramas like "Crown" and "Bridgerton." Amazon's superhero satire "The Boys" is good enough to be the superhero show that breaks through in this category (but Disney+'s lackluster "Star Wars" series "The Mandalorian" will likely be the token science fiction/fantasy nominee). 

TV comedies have helped us get through the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic since last year, and the competition in this category is fierce. "Lasso" is bound to take the titleat the Emmys on Sept. 19, but it shouldn't overshadow the great work of its peers. "Superstore" incorporated COVID-19 into its storylines better than nearly any other show. And Aidy Bryant's "Shrill" offered a third and final season that outdid the brilliant two that came before. 

O'Connor got plenty of great material with his unflattering portrait of Prince Charles in Season 4 of "The Crown" and is a strong contender. But I hope Page, who broke out on "Bridgerton" in December and cemented his star status with a great turn hosting "Saturday Night Live" early this year, doesn't just make the list, but takes home the gold.  

Corrin, who took on the monumental task of portraying Princess Diana in Netflix's drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, is the safe bet in this category, and her performance lives up to the hype. But beyond the "Crown" stars, I'm pulling for Rodriguez, who helped make the final season of "Pose" exquisite, and Cash, who never got her Emmy due for FXX's "You're the Worst" and has a flashier role in "Boys."

Charlotte Nicdao, "Mythic Quest" (Apple TV+)

All hail the year of Jean Smart. The veteran actress had her own renaissance with performances in HBO's "Mare of Easttown" and HBO Max's "Hacks," the latter of which is sure to get her a deserved Emmy nomination (and probably a win). Other worthy candidates include Erskine, the queen of cringe in Hulu's middle school comedy, and Nicdao, who brings grounding and sarcasm to Apple's videogame workplace comedy "Mythic." 

Jason Sudeikis, "Ted Lasso" (Apple TV+)

Josh Thomas, "Everything's Gonna Be Okay" (Freeform)

It's been a weak year for leading men in comedy, and while the Emmy categories occasionally balloon to as many as eight nominees, it might be worth condensing to a few this time around. Especially when this year's Emmys will likely be a tribute to "Ted Lasso," echoing last year's "Schitt's Creek" lovefest, other shows need not apply. Sudeikis is undeniably turning in career-best work as the American football-turned-British soccer coach with a heart of gold. And creator and star Josh Thomas deserves recognition for Freeform's wonderfully insightful "Everything's Gonna Be Okay." The other slots? Not a huge number of really great performances competing. 

Some of the best television of the year is competing in this category. Chess sensation "Gambit" and Pennsylvania murder mystery "Mare" are most likely shoo-ins for nominations, and both were superb shows. So were the excellent British drama "Destroy" and Barry Jenkins' great "Railroad," also favorites as nominees. HBO Max's "Sin" is less certain, but it's not just the best limited series of 2021 so far, it's the best TV show. The series, a chronicle of the worst part of the AIDS epidemic in London in the 1980s, is emotional and effective without a hint of cliché.

2021 Emmy Nominations: The Complete List

Yahoo Entertainment 13 July, 2021 - 10:11am

Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones will announce the nominees for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on Tuesday, July 13 at 8:30 a.m. PT, and the event will be live-streamed for television enthusiasts eager to see what the second-most bizarre awards season ever has brought.

Some of the powerhouse programs that, under more normal production circumstances, would be primed for repeat glory, won’t be eligible until 2022 rolls around. “Succession,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Ozark” are just a handful of perennial Emmy favorites ineligible in 2021. So this could mean the most eclectic, wide-open set of nominations the Academy has ever bestowed.

Of course, the opposite could also be true. Even with an influx of exciting programs from various networks and services, some made before and after last March’s shutdowns, we could be headed for plenty of tried-and-true Academy picks. It could mean an even tighter grip on the nominations list from the perennial awards Goliaths.

The exciting thing is that, even once we know the list of series and craftspeople up for Emmys this year, plenty of these races will still be effective toss-ups. Fan favorites could swoop in and build momentum in the month and a half before final voting closes. The steady mainstays from the past decade could get the benefit from voters across the Academy’s various wings.

It’s been a year of change (one of the networks with multiple Emmy wins last year — including one for the aforementioned Jasmine Cephas Jones — doesn’t even exist anymore!), but we won’t know exactly how much until this year’s nominees are revealed here.

Final round voting for the Emmys begins August 19, 2021 and continues through 10 p.m. PT on August 30. Details for the Creative Arts Emmys — which have traditionally taken place over two nights the weekend before the Primetime Emmy ceremony — have not yet been announced. The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer and air Sunday, September 19, 2021 on CBS. The event will also be available via streaming to Paramount+ subscribers.

Below, IndieWire will post the full list of Primetime Emmy Award nominees, as they’re announced. Check back Tuesday morning for the results.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the Emmy Awards in September as the ceremony returns to a live telecast after last year's pandemic-forced virtual event. There will be a limited audience of nominees and guests at the Microsoft Theatre for the Sept. 19 show, CBS and the TV academy said Monday. Contenders for the 73rd prime-time Emmys will be announced virtually at 8:30 a.m. PDT Tuesday, streaming live on Emmys.com.

Comedian Cedric the Entertainer will host this year's live telecast of the Emmy Awards, the highest U.S. honors for television, in front of a limited in-person audience, broadcaster CBS announced on Monday. The Emmys are scheduled to take place on Sept. 19 at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles at a ceremony attended by nominees and their guests, the network said. "I can't wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year," said Cedric the Entertainer, who stars in CBS comedy "The Neighborhood."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Crown" and “Ted Lasso,” among the TV shows that helped distract America during an oppressive pandemic year, are in the hunt for Emmy recognition. The nominations for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Tuesday by father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (“Blindspotting”), and TV academy chief executive Frank Scherma. In its fourth season, the British royal drama “The Crown” 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.

Apple TV+’s acclaimed comedy “Ted Lasso” returns for its second season next week, and critics are already praising the new episodes as “more ambitious” and “an impressive triumph.” The comedy stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team. (The character was initially conceived for a series of ads for NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage.) Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of Lasso’s team getting booted from the Premier League due to their los

'The Queen's Gambit,' 'Ted Lasso' vie for Emmy nominations

Associated Press 13 July, 2021 - 10:11am

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Crown” and “Ted Lasso,” among the TV shows that helped distract America during an oppressive pandemic year, are in the hunt for Emmy recognition.

The nominations for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced Tuesday by father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (“Blindspotting”), and TV academy chief executive Frank Scherma.

The actors are among the favorites for Emmy nods, along with Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II and Gillian Anderson as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

For Netflix, which led the way for the rise of streaming services but has yet to claim a top series trophy, “The Crown” may represent its best bet. It’s been nominated three times before.

“Ted Lasso,” a feel-good comedy about a middling American football coach abruptly imported to England to take over a soccer team, could snare nominations for star Jason Sudeikis and cast members including Hannah Waddingham and Nick Mohammed.

Thuso Mbedu and Aaron Pierre, who star in the wrenching depiction of U.S. slavery combined with elements of magical realism, are potential nominees.

“Lovecraft Country,” which spins a tale about mid-20th-century racism with elements of horror, is up for drama series honors despite its cancellation by HBO after one season.

“The Mandalorian” and “WandaVision” are among the sci-fi and fantasy genre shows in contention.

Also vying for Emmy consideration are shows that made a splash and boast movie stars, including the crime miniseries “Mare of Easttown” with Kate Winslet and “The Undoing” with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.

TV academy voters have a chance to build on the inclusiveness of last year’s acting nominations, which included a record number of Black nominees — 35 — among the 102 contenders for lead, supporting and guest performances in drama, comedy and limited series or TV movie.

At slightly more than 34% of nominees, that improved on the 2018 record of just under 28% of Black actors in those categories. Voters also have the chance to recognize other actors of color, including Rosie Perez for the comedy thriller “The Flight Attendant,” and trans actors Mj Rodriguez and Angelica Ross for “Pose.”
