The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ 72nd annual Emmy Awards will be presented Sept. 20, but who will be in the running?

On Tuesday, Leslie Jones (“SNL”), Laverne Cox (“Orange is the New Black”), Josh Gad (“Frozen”) and Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) unveiled the nominees — both in front of and behind the camera.

Netflix tallied the most nominations with a record 160 nods, while HBO secured 107. “Watchmen,” the limited HBO series based on the graphic novel of the same name, earned 26 nominations and Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” earned 20.

The Primetime Emmy Awards will feature 26 different categories ranging from acting and writing awards to awards for different types of programs — comedies, dramas and talk shows, among others.

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the live show, although it is unclear what precautions will be put in place to ensure the safety of all attendees. The format and production of the awards show could differ this year.

The Creative Arts Emmys, which typically place a week before the live broadcast Emmys ceremony, recognize technical achievements and are not included in the program. These awards go to cinematographers, casting directors and sound editors, among others.

This year the Creative Arts Emmys will be hosting a virtual ceremony instead of having people pack into an auditorium as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus. The Governors Ball dinners, the official afterparties for the Emmys, have also been canceled.
