Overall, PBS received the most noms with 11, followed by HBO / Max with eight and Netflix with four. The Washington Post and Amazon MGM Studios had three apiece, with FX and Meta scoring two each.

Jury Duty (Amazon Freevee)
This inventive reality-comedy hybrid goes inside an American jury by following one particular juror, who happens to be the only “real” person in the series.
