Emmy preview: 'Watchmen' and 'The Mandalorian' lead the way into a strange virtual weekend

The Emmys will be handed out this weekend, 그러나 70 categories have already been presented during the lead-up to the main event in what is perhaps the strangest week in the award’s 72-year history, while highlighting the unwieldy nature of the TV industry.

Seventy-five awards (some juried categories have multiple winners) have been awarded so far to 26 different networks and streaming services, some of which, like Disney+, Apple TV+ and Quibi, didn’t exist last year at this time. 다른 54 categories will be doled out over the weekend — 30 on Saturday at the Creative Arts show, and two dozen during the primary telecast on Sunday.
Two programs have already amassed five awards each, and both are culled from the fantasy/sci-fi/comic-book genres that “왕좌의 게임” ably represented during its march through Emmy history: “Watchmen,” an HBO limited series adapted from the graphic novel and movie; 과 “만달로 리안,” an addition to the “스타 워즈” universe that made “아기 요다” the world’s most popular meme, from Disney+. (HBO and CNN share parent company WarnerMedia.)
'만달로 리안' 후보에 올랐다 15 Emmys, including best drama.

처음으로, the Emmys will be staged virtually, with nominees staying home due to the coronavirus pandemic. But the producers are determined to be “라이브, 라이브, 라이브,” as they described the plan in a call with reporters, dispatching 130 cameras into the field and hoping nothing (or at least very little) goes technically wrong.
    넷플릭스, with its vast programming lineup, broke a record 와 160 지명, but that’s no assurance of taking home the most trophies, in part because it’s frequently competing with itself.
    Thus far, over the four-night presentation HBOthe Emmy leader for two decades before Netflix caught upand Netflix have each totaled a dozen Emmys, followed by Disney+ with six. That’s largely thanks to “만달로 리안” — also a nominee for best dramawhich collected honors in such areas as visual effects, cinematography and sound.
    Although the highest-profile categories are yet to come, there have already been a few milestones, including Emmys for a pair of nonagenarians: Legendary producer Norman Lear, 98, topped his own record as the oldest person ever to win the award forLive in Front of a Studio Audience,” the ABC special; and naturalist David Attenborough, 93, received the third Emmy of his illustrious career for narrating BBC America’sSeven Worlds, One Planet.
      The Creative Arts ceremony will be televised on FXX, with the primary telecast to be broadcast on ABC. Tyler Perry will receive the Governors Award.
