EMMY AWARDS LIST WITH CATE BLANCHETT AND HUGH JACKMAN AND TONI COLLETTE ARE IN

Nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards announced and Reece Weatherspoon gets snubbed.
Australians Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman and Toni Collette have been nominated for Emmy Awards as Netflix captured 160 nominations, setting an industry record and unseating rival HBO.

Blanchett was nominated in the category of outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her role as Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs. America, while Jackman earned a nod in the category of outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie for his performance as Frank Tassone in Bad Education.

With the old favorites like “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” out of contention, shows like “The Mandalorian,” “Insecure” and “Schitt’s Creek” received multiple nods.

Netflix dominated with 160 nominations, as new services like Disney+, Apple TV+ also made their mark.

Leslie Jones, star of the forthcoming show “Supermarket Sweep” on ABC, was joined by Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany to make the virtual announcement.

This year’s ceremony will take place (in some form) on Sunday, September 20 on ABC LA. Jimmy Kimmel is set to host.
