This year’s outstanding candidates of these groundbreaking actors, producers and comedians will be in a much more important place than ever. ”
The academy reported that a few months ago, the election and voting rules have changed due to the global health crisis. Accordingly, the Emmy nomination announcement was received from July 14 to July 28. The award vote was held between July 2 and July 13.
