Given how 2020 is going, it's fitting that a dystopian drama about police brutality and white supremacy is leading the Emmy nominations. HBO's Watchmen is dominating the list with 26 nominations, while Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has garnered 20 nominations, HBO's Succession and Netflix's Ozark nabbed 18, and CBC's Schitt's Creek scored 15.

 

It was happy news for some performers who weren't considered shoo-ins, including Euphoria's Zendaya, Insecure's Issa Rae, Normal People's Paul Mescal, Hollywood's Jeremy Pope, Unorthodox's Shira Haas, and Black-ish's Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross. In terms of underdog shows that managed to grab unexpected nominations, What We Do In Shadows landed a surprising Best Comedy Series nod, while Killing Eve, The Mandalorian, and Stranger Things made the Best Drama cut, squeezing out The Morning Show, Big Little Lies and Pose.

When it comes to snubs, Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks and Rhea Seehorn failed to grab acting nods, as did Unbelievable's Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever, Little Fires Everywhere's Reese Witherspoon, Better Things' Pamela Aldon, El Camino's Aaron Paul and Jesse Plemons, and The Great's Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult.

The nominations for the 72nd Emmy Awards were announced this morning by Leslie Jones (with help from Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany). Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 20, airing from 8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT on ABC — though it's expected to look much different than usual due to COVID-19.
