Emmys 2021: Where to Stream the Nominated Series

Regardless of which series wins the most awards, it’s the streaming services that are dominating the 2021 Emmys. Though WarnerMedia’s HBO and HBO Max together nabbed a total of 130 nominations, Netflix scored 129 nods, while Disney+ (71), Apple TV+ (35), Hulu (25) and Amazon Prime Video (20) were among the streaming platforms with strong showings.

That means that prior to the big awards night, viewers can easily watch many of the most-nominated TV series.

Wondering how and where to catch up on the series with the most Emmy nominations? Shows such as Bridgerton, Cobra KaiThe Crown, Emily in Paris, The Queen’s Gambit and others are streaming exclusively on Netflix (or available for purchase on other services), and you’ll only find The Mandalorian and WandaVision on Disney+. Ditto goes for Hulu-only The Handmaid’s Tale and Pen15, while Amazon Studios’ The Boys and The Underground Railroad are only on Amazon Prime Video.

Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the 73rd Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 19 on CBS. If you prefer to watch the awards show online live or on-demand, streaming services that offer access to the network include FuboTV, Hulu+, Paramount+ and YouTube TV.
