Nomination list for 2020 Emmys out!

Nominations for the 72nd Emmy Awards have been announced.

The ceremony was reimagined as a virtual event this year due to production restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leslie Jones (Supermarket Sweep, SNL) hosted the announcement, along with presenters Laverne Cox (Inventing Anna), Josh Gad (Central Park), Tatiana Maslany (Perry Mason) and Television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma.

Final-round voting for the Emmys begins August 21 and ends on August 31.

The 72nd Emmy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who will also serve as executive producer. The show will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on September 20 on ABC.

The Creative Arts Emmys, which had been scheduled for September 12-13, will now be handed out in virtual ceremonies “over several nights in September,” with those dates to be determined later. In addition, for the first time in Emmys history there will be no Governors Ball following either the Creative Arts Emmys or the Emmys ceremonies.
