The nominees for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards have been unveiled. Father-daughter Emmy winning duo Ron and Jasmine Cephas Jones presented the Emmy Award nominations via livestream on Tuesday, July 13. After Schitt's Creek swept the comedy categories at the 2020 ceremony, Ted Lasso stood up to the plate (or should we say goal?), earning a Comedy Lead Actor nod for series co-creator Jason Sudeikis and a Best Comedy nomination. Surprisingly, Netflix's Emily in Paris and Cobra Kai also received nominations in the comedy category, joining the likes of black-ish, PEN15, and Hacks.

On the drama side, Pose star Mj Rodriguez made history as the first trans woman to be nominated in the Drama Lead Actress category; she is only the third openly trans person to be nominated in the award's history. Other drama nominees included, predictably, The Crown, which earned nods for Olivia Coleman and Emma Corrin in the Drama Lead Actress category and for Josh O'Connor in the Drama Lead Actor category. Bridgerton, The Mandalorian, The Boys, and Lovecraft Country were also among the drama nominees.

When it comes to Limited Series, Marvel Studios will also be celebrating as WandaVision, its first TV series to launch on Disney+, earned Best Actress and Best Actor nods for both of its leads, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, as well as a Best Limited Series nomination. Netflix's The Queen's Gambit made a good showing once again after winning big at this year's Golden Globes. The Emmys course-corrected from the Globes, showing some love to Michaela Coel's gut-punching series I May Destroy You. And Kate Winslet is once again up for an Emmy for her performance in Mare of Easttown (Winslet won in 2011 for Mildred Pierce).
