''Dash and Lily was nominated for Outstanding Young Adult Series, a Daytime Emmy category, and I think the determination for Series category is generally made by the entrant, not by the Emmys people. For 2021, all five nominees for Outstanding Young Adult Series were on Netflix or Hulu.''
I think you're right, Mikem. Young Adult Series is a new category, and this was the first time shows could choose to compete for it. Hulu's ''Love, Victor,'' a TV spinoff of ''Love, Simon,'' probably could've entered here, but decided (unwisely) to submit for the more competitive Primetime Emmys.
As for the ''Hamilton'' alum, so many of them could've been nominated for other TV work: Daveed Diggs (''The Good Lord Bird''); Renee Elise Goldsberry (''Girls5Eva''), and Anthony Ramos (''In Treatment''), but I guess it was easier for Emmy voters to name-check them off in one fell swoop. And I'm happy Jonathan Groff is an Emmy nominee, but he should've been nominated a few years ago for HBO's ''Looking'' or Netflix's ''Mindhunter.''
