Though the show will look different this year, the 2020 Emmy Awards will still happen amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The awards show will air on September 20 with Jimmy Kimmel hosting the virtual ceremony. The best TV series from the last year will be crowned just as they are every year, however, few other details about the virtual show are known at this time.

What we do know, though, is which TV shows are up for all the big awards at the 2020 Emmys. On Tuesday (July 28), ABC hosted a livestream to announce the full list of nominees. Leslie Jones hosted the nomination announcement. She was joined by Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany and Television Academy CEO Frank Scherma.
