The Emmys are coming. Learn where you can stream all the nominees on Amazon, CBS, HBO, NBC, Netflix and the other networks and streaming services.

The 71st Emmys will air Sept. 22 on Fox, which gives you plenty of time to binge the Emmy-nominated shows you have yet to see. Pretty much every single one is available online, no cable subscription required. You'll need an assortment of streaming subscriptions to catch them all, and that's where we come in.

If you are keeping score by network, HBO leads the way with 137 nominations, thanks to Game of Thrones (32 nominations), Chernobyl (19) and Barry (17). 

Netflix is second with 117 nominations, led by When They See Us (16) Russian Doll (13), Our Planet (10) and Ozark (9). 

NBC proves that traditional broadcast networks can still produce award-winning shows; it received 58 nominations by making you laugh with Saturday Night Live (18) and making you cry with This Is Us (9). 

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (20) and Fleabag (11) helped Amazon to 47 nominations, while Sir Paul helped CBS to 43 nominations with his appearance on Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool (5).

Instead of a list of shows organized by award category -- you can see that list here -- below you'll find the top nominees sorted by network or streaming service. 

For standalone services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO, you can watch on their apps directly. For shows on a major local network channel (ABC, CBS, Fox or NBC; note that CBS is the parent company of CNET), you can use a live TV streaming service. DirecTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV and Sling TV carry one or more local networks, so they're the best bet for cord cutters who want to catch up on those network show nominees on-demand.
