Emmys 2020: A List of Nominees

    The Emmys are still a thing despite COVID shutting down many TV show sets, and despite hardly anyone caring who wins the Emmys.

    OK, fine. I know lots of people care, but I personally don’t. I just like reading about the winners the next day – and providing you with the list of nominees so you can start placing bets with your friends now.

    Netflix earned more nominations than any other network or streaming service this year. That’s not surprising, considering the streaming giant is basically taking over the world.

    But still, Pop TV might rise above as the underdog with Schitt’s Creek. Or will fans of AMC’s Better Call Saul finally see the show get the kind of recognition they say has been missing? It’s hard to say – especially when young comedians like Ramy Youssef are earning Emmy nods in their very first season as a television creator.

    The Emmys take place this year on Sunday, September 20, 2020. Will you be tuning in to see which of the names below take home trophies?
