Emmys 2020 Nominations: See the Full List

Find out who will be competing for TV's biggest prizes

Amanda Bell

While we still don't know exactly how the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will happen, given that the coronavirus pandemic shows no signs of abating in the United States, the show will still go on in some form -- and now we have a full list of this year's nominees! Leslie Jones hosted Tuesday morning's livestream announcing the nominations alongside Josh GadTatiana Maslany, and newly nominated actress Laverne Cox. There are plenty of surprises and snubs to be talked about here -- Rhea Seehorn deserves better -- but a lot of the biggest contenders were expected.  

On the comedy side, Pop TV's feel-good series Schitt's Creek earned quite a few nominations for its final bow, including Outstanding Comedy Series. NBC's The Good Placeand HBO's Insecure also got plenty of recognition, and a pair of reliable awards season favorites -- Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Netflix's The Kominsky Method -- earned some new nods as well. Also competing for Outstanding Comedy Series this year are Netflix's Dead to Me, HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, and FX's What We Do in the Shadows.
