The nomiees for the 73rd Priemtime Emmy Awards were announced on Tuesday. The frontrunners include 'The Crown', 'Handmaid's Tale', 'Mare of Easttown', 'WandaVision','Ted Lasso'. The broadcast was initiated by father-daughter duo Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones with some playful banter about their respective history-making Emmy nominations last year.
The British Royal Drama 'The Crown', in its fourth season moved closer to contemporary events with its version of the courtship and rocky marriage of Prince Charles and Diana Specher, played by Josh O'Connor and Emma Corrin.
The series tied for the most nominations this year along with season 2 of the 'Star Wars' spinoff series 'The Mandalorian' with 24 each.
'Ted Lasso', which is the feel- good comedy about midling American Football coach abruptly imported to England to take over a Soccer team, scored a nomination for star Jason Sudeikis.
