On Tuesday, Netflix tallied a record 160 nominations for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards.

The streaming service snagged nods for its drama shows "Ozark," "The Crown" "Unbelievable," and "Unorthodox," as well as for its comedies "Dead to Me" and "The Kominsky Method," as well as its competition series "Nailed It."

Rival studio HBO previously held the record for most nominations with 137 nominations in 2019. This year, it secured 107 nominations, including 26 for its limited series "Watchmen," the most of any TV show this year. 

Streaming services new and old also raked in nominations this year. Amazon Prime Video's "Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" earned 20 nods and Disney+, which launched in November, scored 19 total nominations including one for best drama series for "The Mandalorian." Apple TV+, also a first-time nominee, garnered 18 nominations and Quibi tallied 10.

The nominees were unveiled by Leslie Jones ("SNL"), Laverne Cox ("Orange is the New Black"), Josh Gad ("Frozen") and Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black") Tuesday morning and the ceremony is set for Sept. 20.

Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the live show, although it is unclear what precautions will be put in place to ensure the safety of all attendees. The format and production of the awards show could differ this year.

The Primetime Emmy Awards will feature 26 different categories ranging from acting and writing awards to awards for different types of programs — comedies, dramas and talk shows, among others.

The Creative Arts Emmys, which typically place a week before the live broadcast Emmys ceremony, recognize technical achievements and are not included in the program. These awards go to cinematographers, casting directors and sound editors, among others.

This year the Creative Arts Emmys will be hosting a virtual ceremony instead of having people pack into an auditorium as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus. The Governors Ball dinners, the official afterparties for the Emmys, have also been canceled.
