The Emmy Nominations Are In! The Morning Show, Watchmen, The Mandalorian & More!

In a year as forgettable and horrible as 2020, television shows have never been better. This past year’s crop of TV shows have been a comforting light in the face of COVID-19, civil unrest, and economic turmoil.

Today we got the nominations for the Emmys, an award show that is somehow still happening this year. The 2020 Emmy Awards will air on September 20, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel will host a virtual edition of the annual awards show. The red carpet and pre-show interviews won’t be the same — if they happen at all — but the Television Academy will still hand out the usual awards. The best TV series from the last year will be celebrated, in what will perhaps be a nice reminder of what once was, back in the pre-pandemic days.

Below are the nominations. You can watch the Television Academy announce the nominees in an archived, truly chaotic livestream, hosted by a livewire Leslie Jones. The 2020 Emmy Awards will air on ABC at 8 pm ET on September 20.
