TV fans rejoice! The day to celebrate the best in television content has arrived with the announcement of the nominees for the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards. Many of the shows that brought you comfort and an escape over the last year are up for the top honor.

Comedian Cedric the Entertainer ("The Neighborhood") will host the event this year. This will be a stark change from last year's audience-less ceremony. The 2021 broadcast will be held in person at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, featuring a limited live audience of nominees and their guests.

There are a lot of new shows getting some love in the comedy category but "Ted Lasso" is an early favorite. And it is anybody's race when it comes to drama with heavy hitters like "The Crown", "This is Us" and "The Handmaid's Tale" all in the running for Outstanding Drama Series.

Here's a complete list of the 2021 Emmy Awards nominees so you can do a deep dive and decide for yourself who you think should win when the Emmys air Sept. 19 on CBS.
