Tonight, we’ll finally find out just how many 2021 Emmy Awards 2020 sensation “Ted Lasso” will take home. Oh, and we’ll probably have some non-“Ted Lasso” winners as well.

For one, TV’s top drama will come down to “The Boys,” Bridgerton,” “The Crown,” The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Lovecraft Country,” “The Mandalorian,” “Pose” and “This Is Us.”

On the sitcom side, “Ted Lasso” is considered the prohibitive favorite among fellow Outstanding Comedy Series nominees “Black-ish,” “Cobra Kai,” “Hacks,” “Emily in Paris,” “The Flight Attendant,” “The Kominsky Method” and “Pen15.”

The 73rd Emmy Awards, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer (“The Neighborhood“), start at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS. Readers can refresh themselves on all of the night’s nominations below.
