Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails are among the nominees announced Tuesday for the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Singers Zendaya and Billy Porter nabbed acting nods for Euphoria and Pose respectively.

The 62nd Grammy Awards collected a number of nominations, the American Music Awards earned one and there were several noms for The Voice and The Masked Singer.
