2020 Emmy Nominations Announced for 72nd Annual Ceremony


This morning, Saturday Night Live alum Leslie Jones revealed the Television Academy’s Emmy nominations 2020 list in a first-of-its-kind virtual announcement. Though the reveal came with some of the expected technical difficulties—at one point, Jones spent several agonizing seconds trying to tell Cox she had been nominated for an Emmy, for her guest appearance in the final season of Orange Is the New Black, but Cox could not understand what she was saying. It also contained plenty of good news for Watchmen, HBO’s newly relevant limited series, which led the list with 26 nominations altogether. It was followed by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the awards’ most nominated comedy (with 20 nods); Ozark and Succession, sharing the title of most nominated drama with 18 awards apiece, and The Mandalorian and Schitt’s Creek, two beloved programs that nabbed 15 total nods each.

Below is the full nominations list, featuring all the major categories. The Emmy Awards air September 20 at 6 p.m. MT on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel will once again host the awards show.
