Television production may have ground to a halt due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but the Emmys are moving full stream ahead.

On Tuesday morning, Leslie Jones, Tatiana Maslany, Josh Gad, and Laverne Cox announced the nominees for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards during a virtual event presented by the Television Academy.

Jimmy Kimmel will once again host the show itself, which is scheduled to air on Sunday, September 20, on ABC. However, it's still unclear what form the actual show will take due to COVID-19.
