The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards will happen this year, though the ceremony might be a little different than the star-studded, not socially distant events of previous years. We know it’ll air on September 20 at 5 p.m. on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel will host, and there will be no Governor’s Ball.

This morning, Leslie Jones announced the nominations. HBO’s limited series Watchmen got the most nominations at 26, followed by Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel at 20, and Netflix’s Ozark and HBO’s Succession with 18 each.
