“The Mandalorian” and “The Crown” Lead All Emmy Contenders
The Emmy nominations came in yesterday and it was a proper showdown between Netflix and HBO/HBO Max for who could snag the most nominations overall. The winner, by a single nomination, was HBO/HBO Max, which garnered 130 Emmy noms in total, just edging out Netflix’s 129.
The two most lauded shows, however, were Netflix’s The Crown and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, which tied with 24 apiece. For HBO, it was their recently canceled series Lovecraft Country, which grabbed 18.
Nearly tying the top contenders was Disney+’s WandaVision, which earned 23 nominations. Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and NBC’s Saturday Night Live grabbed 21, each, while Apple TV’s beloved Ted Lasso scored 20 nominations.
Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit checkmated 18 nominations, while HBO’s brilliant murder mystery series Mare of Easttown tracked down 16. Right behind Mare was HBO Max’s Hacks, which boasted one of Mare’s most beloved performers, Jean Smart, and notched 15.
Disney+’s total haul this year was a massive leap in just their second year of eligibility, nabbing 71 nominations. NBC had the most Emmys for a broadcast network, with 46. CBS grabbed 26 nominations, Hulu 25, and ABC 23. Amazon Prime Video’s 18 nominations included 7 for The Underground Railroad, and a first-ever Best Drama Series nomination for The Boys.
