Emmy Nominations 2020: Netflix Sets New Record, Watchmen Leads All Series

Watchmen leads the 2020 Emmys nominations — announced Tuesday by the Television Academy — with a total of 26 nods, though HBO (its network) came in second to Netflix when it comes to platform totals. Netflix set a new record with 160 nominations, beating HBO’s 137 from last year. HBO isn’t doing too badly this year either; it has 107 nominations of its own. In terms of series, Watchmen is followed by the likes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (20), also a runner-up last year, Ozark and Succession tied at third (18), and The Mandalorian, Saturday Night Live, and Schitt’s Creek not far behind (15).

HBO and Netflix have been trading the position of the Emmy nominations leader for the past few years, after a long stretch of HBO’s dominance. Last year, HBO was helped by the performance of Game of Thrones, Chernobyl, and Barry in getting to 137 nods. Netflix’s big performers — aside from Ozark — amongst the 2020 Emmys nominees include The Crown (13) and Hollywood (12). However, Netflix’s nominations are more in the Creative Arts section, with its lead in the major nominations department much slender: 42 (Netflix) to 38 (HBO).

Some terrific shows and performers have been snubbed as well, most prominently Better Call Saul’s leading duo of Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn, in addition to Unbelievable’s Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever, and Normal People in the best drama series category. On the other hand, the inclusion of The Morning Show and star Steve Carell in the lead actor category came as a surprise. The same goes for the Star Wars series The Mandalorian, which, while a fan-favourite, was not one that many expected to be nominated among best drama series.

For those wondering why their favourite show isn’t nominated, it may be because of the Emmy eligibility period, which runs from June-May. In the case of the 2020 Emmys, that was June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020. TV shows must air at least half of their season prior to the deadline to be eligible.

The 2020 Emmys nominations delivered firsts for many performers too, including Dev Patel (Modern Love), Zendaya (Euphoria), Taika Waititi (The Mandalorian), Cate Blanchett (Mrs. America), Andrew Scott (Black Mirror), Anna Kendrick (Dummy), Lupita Nyong’o (Serengeti), Octavia Spencer (Self Made), Ramy Youssef (Ramy), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Shira Haas (Unorthodox), and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen).

The 2020 Emmys — officially the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards — will be held in two parts as they have for so long. The 2020 Creative Arts Emmys will take place on September 12 and 13, followed by the main ceremony on September 20. The Creative Arts are not broadcast in India. The 2020 Emmys will air live in India on Disney+ Hotstar, Star World, Star World HD, and Star World Premiere HD on September 21 at 5:30am IST.
