The 73rd Emmy Awards nominees were unveiled on Tuesday via the Television Academy’s YouTube livestream, hosted by Emmy-winning father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones in New York City.

“It has been an extraordinary year in which television brought multigenerational families together in a shared love of their favorite programs,” said Frank Scherma, TV Academy Chairman and CEO, in a statement. “So it seems fitting that these two accomplished performers announce this year’s Emmy nominees as we acknowledge and celebrate the exceptional programs and talent that are elevating and redefining television.”

Among this year’s selections, The Crown and The Mandalorian tied for the most nominations with 24 each, followed by WandaVision (23), The Handmaid’s Tale (21), Saturday Night Live (21), Ted Lasso (20), Lovecraft Country (23), The Queen’s Gambit (18) and Mare of Easttown (16).

The competition between leading production platforms is just as fierce — HBO/HBO Max leads the way with 130 total nominations, beating out 2020 leader Netflix‘s 129. Filling the top five, Disney+ received 71 total nods, NBC earned 46 and Apple TV+ secured 34. Broadcast television collected its fewest nominations, tallying just 96 in comparison to last year’s 121.

For Outstanding Drama Series, BridgertonLovecraft County and The Boys are fresh to the category, joining previous nominees Pose, The Crown, The MandalorianThis Is Us and previous winner The Handmaid’s Tale.

Jonathan Majors, Josh O’Connor and Regé-Jean Page have received their first-ever Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series alongside previous category winners Sterling K. Brown, Billy Porter and Matthew Rhys.

As for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Emma Corrin, Jurnee Smollett and Mj Rodriguez are new to the category, joined by returning Emmy nominees Uzo Aduba, Olivia Colman and Elisabeth Moss. Rodriguez’s nomination is especially groundbreaking, as she is the first transgender performer to be nominated for a lead acting role in a primetime series.

Apple TV+’s Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry documentary is up for multiple awards, including Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction or Reality Program, Outstanding Sound Editing, Outstanding Picture Editing and Outstanding Music Direction. Meanwhile, Dave Chapelle‘s Netflix special 8:46 has been nominated for three Emmys: Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special (for Chapelle himself, who directed alongside Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert), Outstanding Variety Special and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special (for Chapelle).

The 73rd Emmy Awards are scheduled to take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 19 in front of a live audience.
