As Deborah in the most-nominated comedy in the Anglo-American football category, Dame Harriet is also up for an Emmy.

Variety shows special nominees include Adele’s One Night Only and Harry Potter’s 20th-anniversary reunion special, while The Beatles’ fly-on-the-wall documentary Get Back has five nods. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is also nominated.

Prize-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, former President Obama, and retired NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will compete for the excellent narrator award.

The top TV shows that aired or were streamed between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022, are being honoured at this year’s awards ceremony.

The Emmy Awards are often regarded as the most important television event in the United States. The ceremony is to be held in Los Angeles on September 12.

There has been no announcement of a host. After last year’s pandemic, Cedric the Entertainer led the event, which was held outside and had a limited number of attendees.

Over 25,000 members of the US Television Academy, which represents actors and producers, vote on the winners of the Emmy Awards.
