Emmy nominations 2020: Netflix breaks records

Among the series, an HBO project is at the top with 26 nominations

On 20 September this year, the annual Emmy awards ceremony will take place to honour various television formats. A few days ago, the circle of favourites was further reduced, as the nominations have now been officially confirmed. One streaming provider stands out at the top of the list all by itself, namely Netflix. The Californian company has a total of 160 nominations and is therefore undoubtedly throwing HBO off the throne with its 107 nominations. The brand new streaming service Disney+ can also be happy: although it can't compete with the first two providers in terms of the 15 nominations, Disney+ has achieved something else that is unique: in its very first year, "The Mandalorian" was nominated as best drama series. The series with the most nominations again comes from HBO. "Watchmen" can count 26 nominations, including Best Mini-Series and Best Actor in a Leading Role. Immediately following with 20 nominations comes the Amazon series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", which already received the same number of nominations last year.
