Netflix, And Streamers As A Whole, Break Emmy Nomination Records

Netflix has received 160 Emmy nominations, breaking the record previously held by HBO, which scored 137 nominations in 2019.

This year’s multiple nominees also include HBO (107), NBC (47), ABC (36), FX (33), Amazon Prime Video (30), Hulu (26) and CBS (23).

New streaming services Disney+, Apple TV+ and Quibi received 19, 18 and 11 nominations, respectively.

HBO’s “Watchman” was the most-nominated single show (26), followed by Amazon’s “The Marvelous Maisel” (20), and Netflix’s “Ozark” and HBO’s “Succession” (18 each).
