Among the limited series, „Easttown Mysteries” with Kate Winslet, „The Leader”, „WandaVison”, „The Underground Railroad” and „I May Destroy You” will be competing for the trophy. The nominations show the rise of the streaming services, with NBC‘s „This is Us” the only television production to make it into the three main award categories of Best Drama, Comedy, and Limited Series.
After Marina Gera became the first Hungarian to win the most prestigious and important award in television in 2019, the Emmy, this year’s nominees for the biggest American television award, the Emmy, include another Hungarian. Marcell Rév is up for an episode of the HBO series „Euphoria” in the category “Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series”.
