The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations have been released, and fanboys worldwide may rejoice that genre television is well-represented, with several high-profile nominations.

The fact that both The Mandalorian and The Boys will be competing for Best Drama Series is a welcome surprise. Bridgerton, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Lovecraft Country, Pose, and This Is Us will join them. The Mandalorian has received an Emmy nomination for Best Drama Series for the second year in a row, and Amazon’s The Boys has received its first. It’s also interesting to have Lovecraft Country in the mix, given HBO’s recent decision not to renew the show for a second season. This Is Us is also the lone representation for network television, as it has been since its inception, which is a praise to the show but also another evidence of how network television is changing.

Cobra Kai, Ted Lasso, and The Flight Attendant are among the audience choices in the Best Comedy category. Black-ish, Emily In Paris, Hacks, The Kominsky Method, and Pen15 join them. On the comedy side, Black-ish is the only candidate from network television; the rest of the nominations are entirely from the world of streaming.

WandaVision received nominated for Best Limited Series, Lead Actress, Limited Series, Movie or Anthology for Elizabeth Olsen and Best Lead Actor, Limited Series, Movie or Anthology for Paul Bettany, representing Marvel for limited television.

After everything was said and done, The Crown on Netflix and The Mandalorian on Disney+ tied for the most nominations with 24 each. According to “Deadline,” the battle between platforms is between HBO and Netflix, with HBO and HBO Max edging out Netflix in overall nominations 130-129. Today, Disney+ received 71 nominations, while NBC received 46, a respectable showing for a broadcast network in the age of streaming.
