EIDR’s Got You Covered: 2020 Emmy Nominations

EIDR would like to congratulate the 91 different programs that shared the 218 nominations across 36 different categories in the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards. The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will take place on September 20, 2020, airing in the US on the ABC television network, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

This year, more than any other, television has helped us get through uncertain times. Our thanks go out to the companies, casts, and crews of the nominated programs who, along with countless others, have worked so hard to inform, challenge, and entertain us.

By the time the Emmy nomination dust had settled, Netflix had set a new record with 160 nominations for a single network, breaking HBO’s record of 137 set just last year. (This year, HBO came in a strong second with 107 nominations.) Contributing to Netflix’s success, HBO’s Game of Thrones gave up its throne as the program with the most nominations (32 in 2019) to Netflix’s Watchmen, with 26 nominations this year. Meanwhile, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Levy, Maya Rudolph, and Ramy Youssef earned the most individual nominations, with two each.
