This year’s nominees are interesting and historical. For the first time in Emmy history, three black women hold spots in Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie: Octavia Spencer, Kerry Washington and Regina King. Zendaya received her first Emmy nomination for her performance as Rue Bennett in “Euphoria” on HBO.

The new streaming service Disney+ received their first Emmy nomination for the Star Wars original show “The Mandalorian”.

Of course with any big award nomination announcement come snubs as well. People were shocked to not see Reese Witherspoon nominated for anything or Viola Davis.

Still, the Emmys showed recognition to a lot of new faces and new stories.

Tune in on Sept. 20 on ABC to watch the Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
