The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards is bringing a sense of pre-pandemic normalcy with an in-person ceremony to celebrate the TV honorees this September.

The Emmy nominations were first announced in July by winners Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones. During the announcement, it was revealed that The Crown and The Mandalorian each secured 24 honors, while Marvel’s WandaVision was recognized in 23 categories. Additionally, The Handmaid’s Tale and Saturday Night Live earned the next highest amount of nominations with 21 each, usmagazine.com reported.

Overall HBO and HBO Max garnered 130 nods and Netflix earned a total of 129.

The ceremony is scheduled to air live on CBS — and its streaming hub, Paramount+ — on Sunday, September 19, as a slew of famous faces are set to hand out the golden statues, led by host Cedric the Entertainer.
