The nominees for the 2020 Emmy Awards have been announced. Here's who we'll be seeing at this year's ceremony...

Overnight, nominations for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards were revealed — and every category came with a surprise.

Netflix gained a massive 160 nods (the most of any network or streamer) with its Ozark show and HBO's Succession led drama categories with 18 nominations each, whilst Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel dominated the comedy side with 20 nods. There was also plenty of good news for HBO's newly relevant limited series, Watchmen, which led the list with 26 nominations altogether.

The Emmy Awards are set to air on September 20 in a ceremony hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
