Taking a victory lap celebrating all four its stars is the perfect way to end this charming and heartfelt series about a privileged family finding what truly matters in life after their wealth is stripped from them. Along with its second nod for best comedy series, the ensemble show was the only comedy or drama series to land nominations in all four acting categories, with Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara earning noms for leads in a comedy and Dan Levy and Annie Murphy for supporting roles. Seasons 1-5 are available to stream now on Netflix, while the sixth and final season will hit the streaming service in October.

How to stream The Crown (13 nominations)

Available on Netflix

It's a good year to be a fan of The Crown. The royal Netflix drama is getting a sixth and final season (instead of the initially reported five), and after not being in contention for the 2019 Emmys, it's back with a vengeance with a whopping 13 nominations. Along with a nod for best drama, the beloved British series detailing the royal family's history also received acting noms for Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter.

How to stream Hollywood (12 nominations)

Available on Netflix

Ryan Murphy's latest series — a postwar recreation of Tinseltown that sees society's most marginalized groups achieve victory in an industry known for the opposite — achieved its own dream, making it into this prestigious tier of projects earning 10 nominations or more. With acting nominations for Jeremy Pope, Dylan McDermott, Jim Parsons, and Holland Taylor, the time is right to turn back the clock and watch their revisionist history.

How to stream Westworld (11 nominations)

Watch on HBO and HBO Max

After taking a year off from the awards circuit, Westworld is back with another strong showing, racking up 11 noms. But after getting nominated for best drama series for its first two seasons, it didn't earn the same recognition for its third. Is that a sign of what's to come on Emmys night? Has interest in the sci-fi thriller about a theme park on steroids waned? HBO hopes not, because it's coming back for a fourth season.

How to stream The Handmaid's Tale (10 nominations)

Blessed be the Emmy noms. This Hulu drama was nominated once again for best drama, and while Elisabeth Moss was snubbed for lead actor, her costars Bradley Whitford, Samira Wiley, and Alexis Bledel each got a nod.

How to stream Mrs. America (10 nominations)

Despite being set in the '70s, this FX/Hulu series feels eerily prescient as Cate Blanchett's conservative author and anti-ERA crusader Phyllis Schlafly attempts to change the course of history. The political period piece is nominated for best limited series and earned acting nods for Blanchett along with her costars Uzo Aduba, Margo Martindale, and Tracey Ullman.

How to stream RuPaul's Drag Race (10 nominations)

Before you sashay away from this list, make sure to check out one of this year's nominees for best reality-competition program, hosted by RuPaul, who's once again nominated for best host. It's a fitting recognition after the cast and crew worked tirelessly to safely finish the most recent season while working remotely during the coronavirus shutdown.

Happy binge-watching!
