‘The Crown’, ‘The Mandalorian’ lead the field with 24 noms; ‘WandaVision’ conjures 23 for 73rd Emmy Awards

Disney+, Netflix

Netflix’s The Crown and Disney+’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian led the field with 24 nominations for this year’s primetime Emmy Awards, which were just announced.

Following close behind is another Disney+ series, Marvel Studios’ first small-screen MCU spin-off, WandaVision, which earned 23. 

As previously predicted, this year’s Emmy nominations were a mix of surprises and sure things, with newcomers like WandaVisionCobra Kai, and The Boys taking their places next to shows that were expected to be nominated, including Ted LassoThis Is Us and Mare of Easttown

Emmy-winning father-daughter team Ron Cephas Jones from This Is Us and Blindspotting‘s Jasmine Cephas Jones read the nominees separately, but together via video — with some audio delay interrupting their cute father-daughter banter.

Here’s a list of the nominees in the major categories. Find the full list at Emmys.com.
