How to Stream the 2021 Emmy Nominated Shows

Ready, set stream!

Megan Vick, Diane Gordon

The 2021 Emmy Award nominees have been announced. Ted Lasso and The Crown dominated the comedy and drama categories respectively. Amazon landed nods for The Boys as well as Barry Jenkins' The Underground Railroad. Pose's final season also made a good showing, nabbing a spot in the Best Drama category as well as acting noms for Billy Porter and Mj Rodriguez. The most surprising nomination might be Netflix's Emily in Paris, which also made a splash at this year's Golden Globe Awards. 

But you've probably read all about who has been nominated, right? What you want to know is how can you catch up on all of the nominated shows you haven't had a chance to check out yet. That's why TV Guide is here. Below is the list of Primetime Emmy nominees and where you can watch them.
