Winners will be revealed on September 19, at an event attended by some of the nominees and their companions at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The Emmy is promoted by the US Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The series The Crown, da Netflix, and The Mandalorian, from Disney+, lead the Emmy race, with 24 nominations each. WandaVision, also from Disney+, stood out in the miniseries.

HBO led among all networks with 130 nominations, closely followed by Netflix with 129. In the last edition, Netflix set a nomination record – it had 160 – but it took 21 awards, while HBO did better with 30 .

The Emmy is one of television’s most important awards.
