  • The Dystopian Series ‘Watchmen’ received a leading 26 nominations Tuesday for the prime- time Emmy Awards

The series, which captured America’s unease as it faces racial clashes amid a pandemic, was nominated as best limited series and received bids for cast members including Regina King and Jeremy Irons.

King was part of a vanguard of actors of color who showed that TV academy voters took heed of the calls for change.

The Amazon comedy “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is the second most-nominated series with 20, followed by Netflix’s “Ozark” with 18.ADVERTISEMENT

“This year, we are also bearing witness to one of the greatest fights for social justice in history. And it is our duty to use this as a medium for change,” Frank Scherma, chairman, and CEO of the Television Academy said at the outset of the presentation.
