The pandemic year devastated the entertainment industry, with shutdowns and delays that took "Better Call Saul," "Stranger Things" and "Ozark" out of the running for this year.
However, there was a lot of great TV to take in, and shows including "WandaVision," "Mare of Easttown" and "The Queen's Gambit" are expected to garner nominations.
Disney+'s "The Mandalorian" could return to the Emmys stage this year, with a shot at the best drama category. Jason Sudeikis' AppleTV+ show "Ted Lasso" seems another sure thing in the comedy category, seeing as "Schitt's Creek" swept the category last year.
Other favorites going into Tuesday's announcement include Netflix's steamy "Bridgerton" and HBO's acclaimed-but-ultimately canceled "Lovecraft Country."
The 73rd Emmys will be held live and in person on Sunday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
