2020 Emmy Awards - SpoilerTV Staff Nominations

Share on Reddit

This Tuesday, July 28 at 11:30am ET/8:30 am PT, the nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced ahead of the ceremony on Sunday, September 20, broadcast on ABC. Ahead of Tuesday's announcement, which you'll be able to follow here on SpoilerTV, I put it to our team to give their nominations for who they'd like to see shortlisted.

It's important to note that these are not predictions; many of these will likely not make the official list. These are the nominations that the team would make if they were a voting member of the Academy. As such, they had to adhere exactly to the Emmy ballots, which means that only those who submitted were up for debate, and performers and programs had to be listed in the category that they were on in the ballots.

The Emmy rules changed on nomination numbers this year. This posed a problem because our number of nominations often brought about ties that were a significant distance from the target number of nominations. Where possible, we have stuck to the intended number of nominations, as you'll see it on Tuesday in the official list. However, where that wasn't possible, we have adhered to the previous rules 5a-5d under the Primetime Rules and Procedures' Nominations Procedures. Next to each category's heading is the number of nominations you can expect to see on Tuesday.

Have a read through the team's collective nominations and then hit the comments with who you'd nominate, were you an Academy voter.
