This morning, Hamilton star Jasmine Cephas Jones and Ron Cephas Jones announced the 2021 Primetime Emmy Nominations. The two became the first father and daughter pair to win Emmys in the same year at last year's ceremony.

There were 12 nominations for the Disney Plus recording of Hamilton, including Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom Jr. up against each other for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. In addition to the lead actors, Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff, and Anthony Ramos will face off for Best Supporting Actor. Same goes for Phillipa Soo and Renée Elise Goldsberry under the Best Supporting Actress category.

Additionally, MJ Rodriguez and Billy Porter were both nominated in leading roles for FX drama series Pose. Rodriguez's historic nomination marks the first time a trans woman has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Husband and wife team and Broadway veterans Kristen Anderson Lopez and Robert Lopez also earned a nomination for their work on the music for WandaVision ("Breaking The Fourth Wall / Song Title: Agatha All Along"), placing Kristen one step closer to achieving EGOT status. Robert became the first person to double EGOT in 2018. Also nominated for music was Marc Shaiman for "Song Title: The End Titles" from Soundtrack of Our Lives.
