Schitt’s Creek presided over a clean sweep of all the major comedy categories at the 2020 Emmys, winning nine trophies for its final season on Pop TV. While it’s unlikely any of this year’s contenders will dominate to that extent, one show is entering awards season with buzz to spare.
We’re referring, of course, to Apple TV+ breakout Ted Lasso, which since its debut last summer has amassed an impressive kudos haul. The U.K.-based, Jason Sudeikis-fronted sports satire will undoubtedly snag a slew of major nominations, beginning with a much-deserved Best Comedy Series nod — and it’s made our list of Dream Emmy Nominees, too.
Scroll through the list below to review all seven of our Dream Nominees (remember, these aren’t predictions; they’re wish lists) and then tell us if our picks warrant a “Hell, yes!,” “Um, no” or “How could you leave off so-and-so?!”
For the record, 2021 Emmy nominations will be voted on from June 17-28, and unveiled on July 13. The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air on Sunday, Sept. 19 on CBS.
