Emmy nominations unveiled with Netflix dominating the list

Netflix dominated the list of Emmy nominations with a record 160 nods for shows ranging from Stranger Things to Tiger King as the list was unveiled on Tuesday (July 28).

HBO ranked second with 107 nominations. But its dystopian superhero drama Watchmen topped the list by scoring 26 nods, followed by Amazon Studio's 1960s comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel winning 20.

Most of the Emmy-nominated shows completed filming before the coronavirus pandemic shuttered Hollywood production, but the effects of the disease that has confined millions to their homes was apparent in reactions on Tuesday.

"This is the best news I've had since getting locked up in the house five months ago," quipped Alan Arkin, who was nominated for comedy The Kominsky Method.

"We are feeling blessed and hoping our show continues to bring a little, lightness, levity and joy," said Mrs. Maisel nominee Tony Shalhoub.

Succession, about a sparring media family, scored 18 nominations including nine for its actors. Ozark, the saga of a middle-class family that launders money, also received 18 nods.

Schitt's Creek, the sleeper hit comedy about a wealthy family forced to live in a rundown motel, scored 15 nods, including for best comedy series and its four main cast members.

Actor Eugene Levy said it had taken people time to fall in love with the show, which aired its final season in April.

"The love and inclusivity that the show had touched people in a meaningful way, particularly now, but (also) in the past year certainly with the mood and tone of what was going on in the world," he said.
