Despite the COVID-19 pandemic having thrown the world into chaos and affecting the entertainment industry in ways few expected, the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards are still on schedule to be announced on Sept. 20 in a virtual format, as dictated by the state of the pandemic.

The official list of nominees was announced on Tuesday in a live video shared by the Television Academy and hosted by Leslie Jones:

Per Deadline, the 2020 Emmy nominations list is an intriguing one — not only due to the pandemic:

Overall, this year’s most unusual TV season (thanks to the coronavirus pandemic) sees a record 767 different programs in the running for Emmys in more than 100 categories. Overall submissions for 2020 have increased by 15% over the previous competition year, according to the TV Academy.
