Here Are Your Nominees For The 2021 Emmy Awards

This year at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards, things are still a little bit strange. Yes, we’re still in this bizarre time that 72nd Primetime Emmy winner John Oliver has been calling a “white void” before, during, and after wearing a fancy hoodie to accept his award for fifth consecutive Best Variety Talk Series. Yet last year’s ceremony, as hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, went pretty well, considering the awkwardness of a virtual-at-home-fire-starting-event, so fingers are crossed that they’ll do it again.

It’s already a completely different year where the ceremony will be mostly virtual with a limited in-person event, and predictability is likely out the door for the ceremony itself. As far as the nominees go, though, one can expect the HBO’s Kate Winslet-starring Mare of Easttown to bring home multiple nods, with Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso and Netflix’s The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit to fare well, too. Cedric the Entertainer will host the actual ceremony, and the nomination announcements are arriving courtesy of Ron Cephas Jones and his daughter, Jasmine Cephas Jones.

Here’s the complete list of nominees, and The Emmys will air on Sunday, September 19.
