2021 Primetime Emmy nominations: The complete list

The 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards announced their nominations Tuesday offering shows like “Ted Lasso,” “Wandavision” and “The Crown” recognition in a year that was otherwise marred by the coronavirus pandemic.

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced by father-and-daughter actors Ron Cephas Jones from “This Is Us” and Jasmine Cephas Jones from “Blindspotting.” The duo was also joined by TV academy chief executive Frank Scherma. 

Both began the broadcast with some playful banter about their respective history-making Emmy nominations last year with Ron jokingly jabbing his daughter for only having one trophy to his two. 

Last year’s show was championed as a major win for inclusiveness with a record number of Black nominees  — 35 — among the 102 contenders for lead, supporting and guest performances in drama, comedy and limited series or TV movie.

The Sept. 10 ceremony, which last year was held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic, will air live on CBS from a theater and include a limited in-person audience of nominees and guests. Cedric the Entertainer is the host. Last year’s show was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, whose late-night series earned him a nomination at this year’s show.

In its fourth season, the British royal drama “The Crown” moved closer to contemporary events with its version of the courtship and rocky marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin.

The series tied for the most nominations this year along with Season 2 of the “Star Wars” spinoff series “The Mandalorian” with 24 each.

Ted Lasso,” a feel-good comedy about a middling American football coach abruptly imported to England to take over a soccer team, scored a nomination for star Jason Sudeikis.

Meanwhile, Disney+’s breakout hit “Wandavision” scored nominations for its core cast members Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.
