Here are the nominees for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have revealed its nominees for the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this morning. D’Arcy Carden and Ken Jeong announced this year’s nominees from the Wolf Theatre in Los Angeles (after a heap of the best awkward banter they could muster, bless their hearts), where Carden learned onstage that her series, The Good Place, earned a nod for Outstanding Comedy Series. We are already beginning to see hints of an awards season after the finales of some of the Academy’s favorites, like Game Of Thrones and Veep. Though both garnered their share of the usual nominations (with Thrones earning a record 32 nominations, despite a contemptuous final season), there was also room for A.V. Club favorites like first-time nominees Fleabag and Pose. Schitt’s Creek also snagged some Academy recognition (finally!) ahead of its sixth and final season.

HBO and Netflix continued to lead the pool of nominations this year, but it’s worth noting that Prime Video more than doubled their number of nods from last year, leaping from 22 nominations to an impressive 47. Almost all of the major networks saw a decrease in their haul; CBS was the only one to gain a number of slots with their 43 nods, which is eight more than they managed last year.


The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented live on Sunday, September 22, on FOX. A host has not been announced as of yet.
