Emmy Nominations 2021

Nominations for the 2021 Emmy Awards are here.

On Tuesday, the Television Academy revealed the list of nominees for the upcoming Emmy Awards. Its usual contenders, Netflix’s “The Crown” and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” lead the nominations, with plenty of its cast members earning nods for their respective performances, including newcomer Emma Corrin for her role as Princess Diana in “The Crown.” Both series were also nominated for the Outstanding Drama Series category.

Other nominees include Jason Sudeikis for his role in fan-favorite “Ted Lasso,” Michaela Coel for “I May Destroy You,” Elizabeth Olsen for “WandaVision,” Anya Taylor-Joy for “The Queen’s Gambit” and Mj Rodriguez for “Pose.” The Emmy nomination is Rodriguez’s first as she makes history for being the first transgender performer to receive a nod for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

The 73rd annual Emmy Awards will air Sept. 19 on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and be available to stream live on the Paramount+ streaming service.
