Oserk was nominated again after its stars Julia Garner and Jason Batman won the Emmys last year.

The TV stars are getting ready to dial this year’s Emmy Awards, which will then take place as a virtual ceremony.

The usual star-studded event in the midst of corona virus infection has been eliminated, so winners will receive their awards at home, or wherever they are.

Despite plans for a second series of Watchmen, HBO’s superhero series, it remains ahead of the recommendations.

Jimmy Kimmel will return to hosting duties in 2019 following Emmys’ desire to go without a match.

The talk show host will oversee the activities from Los Angeles on Sunday evening as the UK candidates and fans learn the winners early Monday morning.

Here’s what to expect from this year’s Prime Time Emmys:

Jimmy Kimmel also hosted the concert One World: Together at Home in April

This year 2012 and 2016 Kimmel hosted Emmys for the third time.

In a letter to the nominees In July, festival organizers confirmed that this year’s event will go digital.

“As you probably guessed, we’m not going to ask you to come to the Microsoft Theater in Downtown LA on September 20th,” they said.

“This year, it’s still going to be the biggest night of the television industry … but we’re coming to you! Make sure you can film in your home or anywhere else you want. “

Speaking at a BBC breakfast earlier this week, successor actor Brian Cox reportedly suggested that Emmy makers send staff to personally deliver trophies to the winners of their homes.

“A man is going to stand outside the door with a man I can’t beat!” Said the star nominated for Best Drama. “Every Emmy candidate – a man standing outside their house.”

Oscar-winning Regina King stars in the HBO superhero series Watchman

With 26 references, Watchman is an innovative redesign of a superhero graphic novel dealing with racism in the United States.

It received a loyal follow-up and critical acclaim during its nine-episode run last year.

But its creator Damon Lindelof did not want to produce a second series. He gave his blessing to HBO to create another one without him, but the network decided not to.

Nominations for the show include one for English lead actor Jeremy Irons for Best Leading Actor in a Limited Series.

Overall in this year’s acting categories, black actors recorded 34% nominations – many of them from Watchman.

The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes, including Regina King, Joan Adebo, Louis Cossett Jr. and Yahya Abdul-Matin II.

There are now eight candidates for the best comedy series, including Shits Creek

The sections are the same as usual – but many have been expanded to include more recommendations.

The Television Academy announced earlier this year that the awards would have a different number of candidates depending on how many submissions were received in each category.

Some sections were not affected by the change, while others found a greater number of locations.

For example, there are now eight candidates for prizes such as Best Comedy Series and Supporting Actress – which had seven and six nominations last year, respectively.

According to the academy, the expansion is aimed at increasing “content in recognizing excellence”.

Other things to know

This year’s running Hollywood stars include Eddie Murphy (his first recommendation in 21 years) and Jennifer Aniston (his first in 11 years).

Netflix has the highest number of referrals, totaling 160. This is the second time this year that the 107th streaming service has beaten its rival HBO.

HBO was hit by the absence of the former Emmys’ favorite Game of Thrones, which ended in 2019 after the eighth season. Traditional broadcast networks ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and PBS have just 127 nominations this year.

More than 25,000 members of the Television Academy voted for the awards, which were first presented in 1949. The name Emmy is derived from the early television device articone camera tube – or Immi.
