The Television Academy announced the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations on Tuesday. A huge win for HBO with a total of 130 nominations across the board with HBO Max in the fold. One more than Netflix with the streaming giant receiving a total of 129 Emmy nods. In just their second year of Emmy eligibility, the streamers took on traditional television and came out swinging for the fences. Also, over a year removed from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Crown” tied Star Wars spin-off “The Mandalorian” for most nominations for a program with 24 each. The Disney Plus favorite struck a tone with audiences as a relative newcomer to the list of Emmy consideration.

Overall, the streaming platform for Walt Disney Co. gathered 71 nods with Marvel’s WandaVision having a total of 23 as the second-most. The rest of the Disney bunch received 75 additional nods between Hulu (25), ABC (23), FX Network (16), Nat Geo (10) and Freeform with one.

“Television has provided a lifeline for so many around the globe this year, delivering a constant source of entertainment, information and inspiration during some of our most difficult days,” said Frank Scherma, the Television Academy chairman and CEO.

“We are thrilled to honor the diversity of storytelling in television today by recognizing talented artists, programs, producers, directors and craftspeople throughout our industry and celebrating their commitment to this extraordinary medium,” he added.

The rest of the program totals included Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” (21), NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” (21), Apple TV Plus’ “Ted Lasso” (20), HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” (18), Netflix’s “The Queen’s Gambit” (18), and HBO’s “Mare of Easttown” (16).
