Emmys 2021: Winners List

By Allison Schonter | PopCulture via PrideNation.com

The night of 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards will serve as an opportunity to honor some of the best TV creators in the business. Ahead of Sunday’s big televised event (available on CBS and Paramount+), the nominees for the 2021 Emmys were unveiled by Emmy-winning father-daughter duo Ron Cephas Jones and Jasmine Cephas Jones back in July. Ever since then fans have been speculating on who will win the big prizes, while nominees have been campaigning hard.

Leading the nominations for this year’s Emmys are Netflix’s The Crown and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, which are tied for a leading 24 nominations each, followed by Marvel and Disney+’s WandaVision with 23 and the Hulu original series The Handmaid’s Tale at 21. In fact, streaming services made a big impact on the small screen this past year, with HBO and HBO Max leading in total nomination with 130 nominations combined and Netflix following closely behind with 129. While Sunday evening could be a history-making night for streamers, it could also see several other history-making moments. Mj Rodriguez is nominated in the lead drama actress category for her portrayal of Blanca Rodriguez on FX’s Pose. A win in that category would make her the first transgender performer to win an acting Emmy. Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live‘s Bowen Yang could also become the first featured player in the show’s history to win an Emmy if awarded the supporting comedy actor award.

Of course, if history is made is yet to be seen, and you will have to tune into the 73rd Emmy Awards when they air on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The show will also stream both live and on-demand on Paramount+. Cedric the Entertainer, whose real name is Cedric Antonio Kyles and who stars on CBS’ hit sitcom The Neighborhood, has been tapped as this year’s host. Keep tabs on this story for an up-to-date list of the 2021 Emmys winners during the show.
