How to Watch the 2020 Emmy Nominees

The 2020 Emmy Awards nominees have been revealed, and now the Television Academy voters will decide what is the most outstanding television of the last calendar year. Netflix reigns supreme with the most nominations, but the streamer face big competition from HBO, Amazon, and Hulu — not to mention a surprise nod for Disney+’s The Mandalorian in the Best Drama Series category.

Thanks to a new rule, the Emmy categories have expanded to allow for more nominees, which means there’s more to watch than ever. This is a guide for everyone who wants to feel caught up going into the award ceremony and scream righteously at the TV if your favorites aren’t awarded for their hard work. TV Guide has compiled the list of Emmy nominees and where you can stream them right now so you’re ready for the big night. You can scroll to find each nominee by category or press CTRL+F (Command+F for Macs) and search for a title you wish to binge.
