Even during a global pandemic, the Emmys are still happening this year in September. Ahead of the show, the nominees for the TV industry’s most prominent awards have been announced by the Television Academy. The 2020 Emmy Awards will air on September 20, and Jimmy Kimmel will host a virtual edition of the annual awards show. We can foresee that the red carpet and pre-show interviews will hardly be the same (if they happen at all) but the Television Academy will still hand out the usual awards. 

 

There are some notable open slots this year in the top categories. Last year, in its second and final season, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s dramedy Fleabag won three big awards: Outstanding Comedy Series, Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and Writing in a Comedy Series. Those awards will be up for grabs now, and previous frontrunner and 2018 winner The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel should be a favourite. Schitt’s Creek, which concluded its final season this year, might also make a splash. Similarly, Game of Thrones won Best Drama Series in its final season last year and should open up the field a bit with its departure. Better Call Saul, Succession and Pose, which were all nominated alongside Game of Thrones last year, could benefit, based on their acclaimed recent seasons.
