AFC Richmond was relegated at the end of last season, but can “Ted Lasso” fare better at the Emmys Sunday night?

The Apple TV+ comedy about an American college football coach who crosses the ocean to lead an English soccer team is expected to be a big winner, but could “Hacks” pull off a surprise? Or will Kaley Cuoco soar high with “The Flight Attendant?”

On the drama side, Netflix’s “The Crown” is always a favorite, but the short-lived “Lovecraft Country” was a critical darling and “The Handmaid’s Tale” remains a haunting dystopian tale.
