2021 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See the 133 Best Drama Series hopefuls from A (‘Absentia’) to Y (‘Yellowstone’)

TV academy voters are faced with a daunting task when they fill out their 2021 Emmy Awards nominations ballot in that they have to consider 133 shows for Best Drama Series. On the bright side, the amount of entrants is down by 66 from last year, and members no longer have to winnow their choices down to just 10 favorites. As with the last several years, they are being told to “Vote for as many achievements in this category that you have seen and feel are worthy of a nomination.”

Last year’s champ, “Succession,” will not return to defend its title, as no new episodes of the HBO series have aired since its second season finale in October 2019. Of its seven rivals last year, four — “Better Call Saul,” “Killing Eve,” “Ozark,” and “Stranger Things” — also did not return in time to meet the eligibility window of June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021. The remaining three — “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “The Mandalorian” — are included on this year’s ballot. The former two are each vying for their fourth bids here, with “The Handmaid’s Tale” looking for a second victory after taking the prize in 2017.

Remember, only eight of the shows below will earn bids for Best Drama Series when the Emmy Awards nominations are announced on July 13.
