The 2021 Emmy Awards will take place on the evening of Sunday, September 19, at 8 p.m. ET. A new rule change marks this year as one of the most progressive Emmy ceremonies yet: Gender non-conforming nominees in any of the categories can request that they be referred to as “Performer” rather than “Actress” or “Actor.”

This comes during the same year that Mj Rodriguez made history as the first trans actress to be nominated in a lead category for her work in Pose. Other longtime favorites who are up for an award include Kathryn Hahn, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Uzo Aduba, and Elisabeth Moss.

Read on to see the nominees for the most exciting categories at this year’s Emmy Awards!
