The 72nd Annual prime time Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and might I say I’m quite excited for the list of actor’s and TV shows being honored .

The nominees were announced by Leslie Jones, Laverne Cox, Tatiana Maslany (Perry Mason), and Josh Gad, and HBO’s “Watchmen” picked up the most nominations of any project — with the limited series picking up 26 noms total. Close behind was “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” with 20, “Succession” and “Ozark” with 18 apiece and “The Mandalorian” with 15.

“Schitt’s Creek” received 15 nominations as well, including Outstanding Comedy and acting nods for its four central stars.

Other notable noms: Brad Pitt for playing Dr. Fauci on SNL, Zendaya getting her first nomination for “Euphoria,” a posthumous nom for Fred Willard on “Modern Family” and a first Comedy Series nom for “Insecure.”

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host this year’s awards, which will air September 20 on ABC. I’m not sure if the show will be virtual — like the Daytime Emmys — or if the Emmy’s will take the same approach as the MTV VMA’s and secure a stadium for the televised event.
