The moment TV lovers have been waiting for is finally here!

The 2021 Emmys nominations were announced on Tuesday during a live, virtual event streamed on the Television Academy's website. This Is Us star Ron Cephas Jones and Hamilton's Jasmine Cephas Jones — who are also father and daughter in real-life — presented this year's nominees alongside Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma.

Cedric the Entertainer was announced as this year's Emmys host on Monday. This year's ceremony will also feature a limited in-person live audience of nominees and their guests, after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the Emmys to go mostly virtual in 2020.

"I can't wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year," he said in a statement.
