Disney+ and Netflix steal the show at the Emmy nominations Tuesday with 24 nods each for the "Star Wars" TV series "The Mandalorian" and the latest season of British royal drama "The Crown."
The two shows dominated the drama category, while fellow Disney+ series "WandaVision," scored the most limited series nods with 23.
The nominations reinforced the rapid rise of streaming, with the top-nominated scripted shows on services that largely emerged in the past two years. In the top three categories – drama, comedy and limited series – only the NBC show "This Is Us” snagged a nomination.
In a pandemic year in which housebound Americans relied more than ever on TV for distraction, TV academy voters recognized a variety of storytelling and a diverse group of actors and creators. One example: Mj Rodriguez of "Pose” is the first transwoman to be nominated in a lead acting category.
Netflix’s "The Crown” received its fourth nomination for best series and is likely the streaming service’s best chance to win its first-ever top series trophy. The British royal drama moved closer to contemporary events with its version of the courtship and rocky marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin. O’Connor and Corrin received lead drama acting nods, as did the series’ Olivia Colman for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II, with a supporting bid to Gillian Anderson for her performance as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The showings by "The Mandalorian,” an extension of the "Star Wars” franchise, and the inventive "WandaVison” featuring the Marvel characters Wanda and Vision, put the shows in the ranks of past sci-fi and fantasy Emmy favorites "Game of Thrones” and "Lost.”
