After a mostly virtual show last year, the 73rd Emmy Awards will air live with an audience and the red carpet on CBS on Sunday, Sept. 19, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET. Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the Television Academy’s event will take place outdoors at the L.A. Live deck in downtown Los Angeles with a limited number of nominees in the crowd.
This year’s most-nominated TV shows include a host of original series from streaming services. Netflix has earned a total of 129 nominations for shows including Bridgerton, Cobra Kai, The Crown, Emily in Paris, Halston, The Kominsky Method and The Queen’s Gambit, making the streamer the second-most nominated after WarnerMedia’s HBO and HBO Max (which netted a combined 130 recognitions).
Disney+ has earned 71 nods, led by The Mandalorian (which tied with The Crown for most-nominated series) and Wandavision, and Apple TV+ has 35 nominations, with 20 for Ted Lasso. Hulu original series The Handmaid’s Tale and Pen15 helped earn the Comcast- and Walt Disney Company-owned streamer 25 Emmy nominations, while Amazon Prime Video has landed 20 nods for shows including The Boys and The Underground Railroad.
