Emmys 2020: Netflix with mega-record, “The Mandalorian” makes history, “Watchmen” with the most nominations

The Television Academy has just announced the nominees for the Emmys 2020. Netflix reaches a new high with a total of 160 (!) Nominations, HBO’s “Watchmen” has 26 nominations, making it the front runner among the series.

In just over two months, the most important award in the television world will be awarded – the Emmys. Before the best TV formats are finally chosen on September 20, 2020, the first thing to do is to reduce the selected series to a group of favorites. With the nominations that have now been announced.

Netflix leaves the competition well behind with a total of 160 (!) Nominations, knocking HBO from the throne. The “Game Of Thrones” channel received 137 nominations for the final season of the fantasy series last year and was able to record 20 more than the streaming giant Netflix in 2019. This year, with only 107 nominations, they are well behind the competition with the red “N”, which is slowly becoming an arch-rival – after it had a slim 13 nominations in 2013.

In addition, Disney achieved something that no 9Movies provider had done before – in fact, it won a nomination for the best drama series (for “The Mandalorian”) in the first year. The “Star Wars” series has a total of 15 nominations. That is impressive, but it is still significantly less than with some of the others …

“Watchmen” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” on top

With “Watchmen” the format with the most nominations does not come from Netflix, but from HBO. Unsurprisingly, the sequel series to Alan Moore’s cult graphic novel * was nominated in the categories of Best Mini-Series, Best Actress (Regina King) and Best Actor (Jeremy Irons), among others.

The fact that “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” got the second most nominations after all is no great surprise. The Amazon series already received an impressive 20 nominations last year – and again this year.

Netflix and HBO share the crown among the drama series: both the mystery series “Ozark” with Jason Bateman as the money-laundering family man and “Succession” for a media mogul and his legacy have been nominated 18 times. There were eight nominations for the German mini-series “Unorthodox”.

You can find all other nominees on the official website of the Emmys.
