Television served as a source of entertainment more than ever during the past year. As such, fan favorites such as Netflix’s The Crown and Disney Plus’s The Mandalorian swept the categories with 24 nominations each. WandaVision – the first installment of Marvel’s TV series – received 23 nominations, including Best Limited Series.

Timely and provocative shows like The Handmaid’s Tale and I May Destroy You also walked away with several nominations. Meanwhile, HBO Max’s Lovecraft Country totaled 18 nominations, just days after it was revealed that it would be canceled after just one season.

It’s been a good year for television, and the Emmy Awards are a reflection of that. See how your favorite actors, performers, and series came out below.
