LOS ANGELES (AP) — “The Crown” tied with “The Mandalorian” for the most Emmy nominations Tuesday, 24 each, but the Marvel universe also got bragging rights with runner-up “WandaVision.”

The nominations reinforced the rapid rise of streaming, with the top-nominated scripted shows on services that largely emerged in the past two years.

In the top three categories — drama, comedy and limited series — only the NBC show “This Is Us” and ABC's comedy “black-ish” snagged nominations.

The nominees for best drama series are: “The Boys”; “Bridgerton”; “The Crown”; “The Handmaid’s Tale”; “Lovecraft Country”; “The Mandalorian”; “Pose”; “This Is Us.”

In other Emmy news, the AppleTV+ series "Ted Lasson" earned 20 nominations, to bypass "Glee" as the most nominated freshman comedy series in TV history, Deadline reported.

In a press release, Jamie Erlicht, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video, said, "Nothing is more exciting for us than witnessing our exceptionally talented cast and creative teams be recognized for their extraordinary work."

CBS will air the Emmy Awards on Sept. 19.
