This year’s Emmy nominations are in. Apple has been given 35 nominations across its Apple TV+ offerings. Apple broke records for the Primetime Emmy Awards, all thanks to critical darling ‘Ted Lasso’, which received 20 nominations. The series became the most nominated comedy series this year and the most nominated freshman comedy series in the history of the awards.

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards is set to be held on September 19, 2021. Apple has been given many nods, especially when compared to last year. As the company’s Apple TV+ streaming service was just getting its feet wet in 2020, Apple received 18 nominations. This year, the company has received nearly double and much of that is because of ‘Ted Lasso’, which stars Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, Brendan Hunt, Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, Jeremy Swift, and Nick Mohammed, all of which have been nominated for awards.

Additional awards were given across multiple other pieces of content on Apple TV+ including ‘Mythic Quest,’ ‘Central Park,’ ‘Servant,’ ‘Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,’ ‘Boys State,’ ‘Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,’ ‘Bruce Springsteen’s Letter To You,’ ‘The Year Earth Changed,’ and ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series.’
