Emmys 2021 Nominations: The Crown, The Mandalorian, WandaVision lead race; Check out full list

The 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards announced their nominations on Tuesday, offering shows like ‘Ted Lasso’, ‘Wandavision’ and ‘The Crown’ recognition in a year that was otherwise marred by the COVID pandemic. According to Fox News, the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced by father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones. The duo was also joined by TV academy chief executive Frank Scherma.

They began the broadcast with some playful banter about their respective history-making Emmy nominations last year with Ron jokingly jabbing his daughter for only having one trophy compared to his two.

Last year’s ceremony was championed as a major win for inclusiveness with a record number of 35 Black nominees among the 102 contenders for lead, supporting and guest performances in drama, comedy and limited series or TV movies.

The British royal drama ‘The Crown’, in its fourth season moved closer to contemporary events with its version of the courtship and rocky marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin.

The series tied for the most nominations this year along with Season 2 of the ‘Star Wars’ spinoff series ‘The Mandalorian’ with 24 each.

‘Ted Lasso’, which is a feel-good comedy about a middling American football coach abruptly imported to England to take over a soccer team, scored a nomination for star Jason Sudeikis.

Meanwhile, Disney Plus’ breakout hit ‘Wandavision’ also scored nominations for its core cast members Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.
