Where to Watch the 2021 Emmy-Nominated Shows

The Emmy nominations for 2021 are out and the takes are being frantically written, but you just want to see what all the fuss is about. That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you where you can watch the major Emmy contenders by streaming service. So take a look and see if any of these are still on your watch list.

Keep in mind we’re listing the primary service or network where you can catch these titles without paying extra (if you’re already a subscriber or have internet service). Many of them are also available for a one-time rental fee from services such as Prime Video, Apple TV and YouTube.

You’ve got until Sunday, September 19 to watch these shows before the winners are announced at the 73rd Primetime Emmy ceremony. The evening will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer and broadcast live on CBS and Paramount+. It may seem like a long way away, but things move fast in the summer. The big event will be here before you know it, so you might as well start preparing now.
