Ozark, Watchmen, Succession, Dead To Me, Killing Eve, and Schitt’s Creek lead the 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations with three nods apiece.

The comedies and dramas all picked up outstanding series mentions, while their leading men and women all grabbed outstanding actor and actress nods.

Submissions for the 2020 Emmys shattered records with an increase of 15 percent over the 2019 ceremony when there were more than 9,100 submissions.

The nominees announcement streamed on Emmys.com on Tuesday morning (July 28, 2020), was hosted virtually by Leslie Jones, a three-time Emmy nominee for her work on Saturday Night Live, with presenters Tatiana Maslany, Laverne Cox, and Josh Gad.

The 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented on September 20, 2020, with Jimmy Kimmel as host.

Meanwhile, the Creative Arts Emmys, which will honor technical and costuming merit, will be presented at a virtual event taking place over several nights in September in place of a physical prizegiving, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
