Ahead of the big night on September 20, organisers of the Academy unveiled the nomination list for the 2020 Emmy Awards last evening on its social media handles. With big players like Game of Thrones, Veep, and Fleabag no longer in the running this year, hopes were pinned on a gamut of other favourites, including the Canadian sitcom Schitt's Creek, The Crown, fronted by Olivia Colman, and Succession.

An overtly jovial Leslie Jones was virtually accompanied by Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany in announcing the names.

Netflix broke the record for most nominations in a single year, scoring 160 in total. HBO was the previous record-holder with 137 in 2019. However, it was the latter's Watchmen that took home the most nominations — 26 — followed by 20 for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Ozark and Succession tied at the third spot.
