‘Watchmen’ cast: 2020 Emmy ballot submissions include Regina King, Jeremy Irons …

The 2020 Emmy ballots have been released by the Television Academy, so we now know which shows, actors, etc. are in contention for this year’s golden statues. HBO’s “Watchmen” accounts for eight entries on the performer ballot, including lead actors Regina King and Jeremy Irons. The uniquely timely limited series about mask-wearing and racial injustice is a loose adaptation of the 1980s comic book about vigilante superheroes, which only lasted a single volume. “Lost” and “The Leftovers” showrunner Damon Lindelof oversees the first season, but has gone on record saying he won’t return if the show eventually comes back for a second installment. Tour our photo gallery below to see all of the actors who’ve been submitted for the 2020 Emmy Awards.
