With the circumstances surrounding 2020, it is no wonder that television and streaming series have become go-to entertainment source for audiences. As such, many wondered which of the shows would be nominated at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards.
This year, streaming truly got a moment to shine with nominations for Hulu’s Mrs. America, Netflix’s The Crown, and Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, among others.
However, HBO dramas racked up several nominations. Watchmen gained the most, earning eleven including Outstanding Limited Series and several of the actors and actresses competing for best performances. Succession came in second, gathering ten including Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
Coming in third, Netflix’s Ozark gathered nine. including stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney both nominated for Oustanding Lead in their respective categories. It also goes head-to-head with Succession in Outstanding Drama Series. Of the two, Succession is the favorite to win the Emmy according to Sports Betting Dime.*
Disney Plus received a single nod for their science fiction series The Mandalorian in the Outstanding Drama Series category, which I feel underrepresented the show. It has some incredible performances, is well-written, and renewed interest in the Star Wars universe. Pedro Pascal definitely deserved an Outstanding Lead Actor nomination right along with Gina Carano for Outstanding Supporting Actress as the roles of Mando and Cara Dune, respectively.
