Nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards

Television Academy announced the nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards.

Leslie Jones was joined by Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany to announce the nominations. Netflix collected 160 nods in total, outranked every other network or streamer.

With usual old favourite series like Game of Thrones and Veep Out of competition, shows like The Mandalorian, Insecure and Schitt’s Creek received multiple nods. The most nominated series was HBO’s Watchman, scoring 26 in total, followed by Amazon Prime Video’s Marvelous Mrs Maisel scored 20 nods and Netflix’s Ozard,18.

It is noteworthy that the Emmys bestowed the most nominations amid calls for racial justice and inclusion on Watchman, which opened with the Tulsa race Massacre. Similarly, Black actors landed nominations in major categories including Issa Rae, Zendaya, Yvonne Orji, Kerry Washington, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

The 72nd nomination was more of a virtual event due to the production restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Final- round voting for the Primetime Emmy Awards begins on August 21 and runs through August 31…
