The nominations for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards are here, and history has already been made: MJ Rodriguez officially became the first transgender nominee in the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series category, for her role as Blanca on FX’s Pose.
Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live cast members Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, and Bowen Yang were nominated — Bryant for the final season of her Hulu show Shrill, and Yang for his work on SNL. Michaela Coel was nominated for her series I May Destroy You, which itself was nominated for Outstanding Limited/Anthology Series.
Netflix’s The Crown and Disney+’s The Mandalorian tied with the most nominations with 24 each. The awards will take place September 19, 2021, at 8:00 PM EDT, and Cedric the Entertainer will host the ceremony for CBS with a limited in-person audience.
