The 2020 Emmy nominations went live Tuesday. Some caused a stir.

But no one could argue with the three noms ESPN's "The Last Dance" pulled in. The 10-part documentary series centered on Michael Jordan and the dynasty Bulls, which smashed ratings and largely exceeded expectations, received recognition in the Documentary or Nonfiction Series category; individual episodes are up for honors in the Picture Editing For A Nonfiction Program (Episode 1) and Directing For A Documentary/Nonfiction Program (Episode 7) sections, as well.

In the race for best Documentary or Nonfiction Series, "The Last Dance" squares off with "Tiger King," "McMillion$," "Hillary" and "American Masters." Quite the field. Variety has the full list of noms here.

So, could Jordan and the Bulls make out with a third three-peat? If you ask us, a clean sweep is in order.

But if not, take solace in the fact that MJ will surely take it personally. And be back with an 11-parter in 2021.
