Emmy Awards 2020: full list of key nominations by category

The 72nd Emmy Awards will be staged in Los Angeles on 20 September (hosted by Jimmy Kimmel) and despite this year’s ceremony set to be a virtual experience there have been a series of changes to the number of nominees. The nominations will be on a sliding scale (1 to 19 submissions will result in 0 to 4 nominations; 20 to 8 submissions will result in 5 nominations; 81 to 160 submissions will result in 6 nominations; 161 to 240 submissions will result in 7 nominations; and more than 240 submissions will result in 8 nominations.)

The main categories, Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Comedy Series, will now have eight nominees each instead of its usual five.
