This year has brought its ups and downs, but we’ve always been able to count on some great television, both on streaming and broadcast — though mostly streaming, if you go by the Television Academy’s picks. And speaking of that, it’s officially TV’s biggest night, and the 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are about to begin!

Taking the reins for the Sunday, September 19 ceremony is The Neighborhood‘s Cedric the Entertainer, who will help honor the best of the small-screen from the last year. On the topic of streamers, HBO Max is leading the pack with 130 total nominees, thanks to shows like Hacks and Mare of Easttown, with Netflix close behind with 129 nominations for shows like Bridgerton and The Crown.
