Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman nominated for Emmy Awards as Netflix dominates

Australians Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman and Toni Collette have been nominated for Emmy Awards as Netflix captured 160 nominations, setting an industry record and unseating rival HBO.

The 72nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations have been announced in a virtual ceremony in Los Angeles by the comedian Leslie Jones.

Netflix led all networks with a record 160 nominations, followed by HBO with 107.

Netflix’s massive haul was led by multiple nominations for its violent crime drama Ozark, the British royal period piece The Crown and the post-World War II miniseries Hollywood.

HBO’s Watchmen, cloaked in superhero mythology and grounded in real-world racism, received a leading 26 nominations for the awards.
