The 73rd Emmy Awards nominations follow a year of staying indoors, where for many TV was a lifeline to the outside world — or a necessary distraction from it. More television means more people seeing titles to vie for awards, which means, as entertainment columnist Glenn Whipp writes, "Expect this year’s Emmys 'snubs' lists to be filled with your favorite shows and actors, even though it’s impossible to 'snub' something when the ability to reward remains so limited."

The nominees for the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards, to be handed out in September on CBS, were announced via livestream Tuesday morning. Netflix's "The Crown" and Disney+'s "The Mandalorian" led overall and among drama nominees with 24 nods apiece. Marvel sensation "WandaVision," also from Disney+, topped limited series with 23, while Apple TV+'s freshman comedy "Ted Lasso" nabbed 20. Here's the full list:
