Get ready for a battle between Netflix regency-set dramas as The Crown and Bridgerton both managed to secure a handful of nominations for the 2021 Emmy Awards, helping to give Netflix quite solid odds heading into this year’s Emmy Awards broadcast.
While The Crown was always seen as a favorite to pick up several nominations as it so often does, the Bridgerton Emmy nominations were a bit more of a pleasant surprise to fans of the breakout Shonda Rhimes produced drama.
The regency-era romantic drama inspired by author Julia Quinn’s bestselling book series became an immediate hit with fans and critics alike when it debuted in December 2020. While the show’s success among fans seemed to make the show a favorite to lock down a few Emmys, it’s always hard to predict how award show voters might vote.
Fortunately, the Emmy voters seem to have been equally enamored by the romantic drama and its leading man, Regé-Jean Page!

Not only with Bridgerton be competing for the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy, but the Emmy voters also showed some well-deserved love to Regé-Jean Page in recognizing Page’s performance as Simon Basset with a nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series race.
