Scoring an Emmy nomination means you’ve made it big right? We can only image what the feeling may be like to hear your name being called for a nomination.
Just yesterday, Leslie Jones, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany, and Laverne Cox revealed the complete list of nominations for the 2020 Emmys.
Due to the global pandemic, these presenters did not join together for the traditional nominations ceremony, instead they joined one another remotely for a livestream.
There’s so much to celebrate and surely, congratulations are in order for everyone that received a nomination at the 72nd Annual Emmy Awards.
