The 2020 Emmy nominees have been announced, and you can check out the full list now. Between the acting, technical, and overall awards, there’s a whole heap of data on offer here, but when you break it all down, some clear frontrunners emerge.
Watchmen (HBO) comfortably leads on TV with a whopping 26 nominations. These included multiple technical awards, plus three directing nods, lead actor (Jeremy Irons), lead actress (Regina King), supporting actress (Jean Smart) and three supporting actors (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jovan Adepo, Louis Gossett Jr). This makes it a likely front-runner for “best limited series”.
In the Comedy catergory, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel (Amazon) leads with a huge 20 nominations. The drama nominees are led by Succession (HBO, 18 nominations) and Ozark (Netflix, 18 nominations), both of which gained a lot of traction with their most recent seasons.
