2021 Emmy Nominations: See All the Nominees Here

by 24USATVJuly 13, 2021, 7 p.m. 19

After a year in television that saw the birth of multiple new streaming platforms, a whole bunch of livestreams replacing in-person events, and the meteoric rise of an affable coach named Ted Lasso, the 2021 Emmy nominations found a way to recognize almost all of it. Presented by father-daughter acting pair Ron Cephas Jones (an Emmy winner for This Is Us) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (star of the Blindspotting TV series), the 2021 Emmy nominations were announced live Tuesday morning.

As expected, there was a strong showing for awards-season heavyweights Ted Lasso, in the comedy-series categories (no fewer than four nominees for supporting actor!), and The Crown, while Hamilton roared back more than five years after dominating the Tony Awards to score a slew of nominations for its actors. The race remains tight in the limited-series categories, with Michaela Coel, Kate Winslet, and Anya Taylor-Joy all facing off in lead actress. And multiple actors scored double nominations, including Aidy Bryant, Jean Smart, and Kenan Thompson.

Take a look at the full list of nominees below, which we’ll update live as they come in, and check out our predictions to see how well we did.
