The 2020 class of Emmy Awards nominees were announced via a livestream event hosted by Leslie Jones on Tuesday. The unveiling of nominations for the 72nd annual edition of the awards show, which will look very different this year thanks to ongoing pandemic concerns in the U.S., also saw guest drop-ins from Laverne Cox and others.

In addition to the looming complications brought on by COVID-19, this year's ceremony will mark the first since a number of recent mainstays—including Fleabag and Game of Thrones—exited the pool of potential competitors following the respective ends of their celebrated TV runs.
