Here, Variety breaks down the early odds in 14 categories at the 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
With last year’s winner (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) no longer in the running, there was a big vacant spot in this category but, interestingly, it wasn’t the only slot to see a different title from the 2019 ballot. AMC’s “Better Call Saul” returned consecutively (with seven overall nominations), as did BBC America’s “Killing Eve” (with eight overall noms), Netflix’s “Ozark” and HBO’s “Succession”. After a year away (due to ineligibility), Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” both popped back on the ballot, as did Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” (with 10 overall noms). The wild card in the race is Disney Plus’ “The Mandalorian,” a freshman show that snagged 15 noms overall.
