Emmys 2021 Cheat Sheet: From ‘The Crown’ to ‘Ted Lasso’

The 2020-21 season was a transformative one for television. New streamers came online, options were endless, and home screens substituted for movie theaters. Now with the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday, TV fans have their chance to root for the shows that helped get them through the pandemic lockdown, boredom and blues.

Hits that captured that moment are among the most nominated, including the latest seasons of “The Crown” and “The Mandalorian” (which led with 24 nods each), and debut series such as “WandaVision” (23), “Ted Lasso” (20), “The Queen’s Gambit” (18) and “Bridgerton” (12).
