2020 Netflix Emmy nomination billboards...

Shira Haas Unorthodox Emmy nominee billboard
This summer Netflix forwent their traditional Emmy consideration campaigning outdoors (perhaps in part due to the coronavirus pandemic), although they did instead support their Black Lives Matter Collection with billboards and thanked their cast and crew in the same time period.

However the streaming giant still managed to score a whopping 160 nominations, setting an industry record and beating its rival HBO, who captured 107 nods this season.

One drama receiving well deserved attention this season was the German-American mini-series, Unorthodox, starring Shira Haas as a Jewish woman fleeing her arranged marriage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
