Netflix Inc landed 20 TV series nominations, more than any other network.
HBO, owned by AT&T Inc, ranked second with seven and Walt Disney Co's Hulu earned six.
Streaming TV emerged as a main source of entertainment in 2020 as movie theatres closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic and people spent more time at home.
Netflix added more customers in a single year than ever before, reaching 203.7 million subscribers around the globe, and Disney+ leaped to 86 million.
The Queen's Gambit on Netflix, starring Anya Taylor-Joy as a gifted chess player who fights drug and alcohol addiction, will compete in the limited series category against HBO's The Undoing, Netflix's Unorthodox and others.
