The 67th Emmy Awards air this Sunday, September 20, with funnyman Andy Samberg hosting the festivities. While critics and fans (and, full disclosure, this reporter) are rooting for the cast of Mad Men to finally bring home some individual acting awards, it’s also always fun to cheer for the home team.

And so, we bring you a list of actors, producers, directors, writers, and TV shows with local ties that have drawn the attention of the Television Academy this year:

Louis CK
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Outstanding Comedy Series
Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series
Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series
Outstanding Variety Special
Outstanding Writing Variety Special
Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

The 37-time (!) Emmy Award nominee and six-time winner is competing in seven categories alone this year. The comedian, who started his career in Boston, is recognized for acting, writing, producing, and directing on his show Louie, producing and writing Louis CK: Live at the Comedy Store, and hosting Saturday Night Live. Phew!

Uzo Aduba
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

The Medfield native, BU grad, and Boston Marathon runner is once again nominated for her portrayal of Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix’s hit show Orange Is the New Black, although the series has been recategorized as a drama rather than a comedy this year. When asked about “Hugs Can Be Deceiving,” the episode she submitted for consideration, Aduba told Vulture, “I picked the episode because I wanted to honor Suzanne […] Because here’s the thing: I can relate to Suzanne’s story. I grew up in a very small New England town, and I’m first-generation Nigerian. I know and understand what it feels like to be ‘other.'”

Amy Poehler

Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special
Outstanding Special Class Program

Just like Mad Men, NBC’s Parks and Recreation, which aired its finale in February, enters the Emmy races for the last time this year. In addition to her role as DGAF empress Lesley Knope, Burlington-bred Amy Poehler is also nominated for her work as a producer on the show, as well as for her gig hosting the 2015 Golden Globe Awards with BFF Tina Fey.

Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program

Last year, recognizing the complexities of the growing phenomenon that is reality television, the Television Academy decided to split the category into two—structured and unstructured—and Wahlburgers has been nominated ever since. Mark and Donnie once again earn nods as executive producers of the show.

Elizabeth Banks
Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

Pittsfield native Elizabeth Banks, who recently reunited with fellow Massachusetts thespian Amy Poehler in Netflix’s prequel to Wet Hot American Summer, is nominated for an Emmy this year for he role as Sal, friend of Mitchell and Cameron on Modern Family. She’s been previously nominated in the same category for her work on 30 Rock.

Finn Wittrock
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie 

Finn Wittrock, nominated for his role as Dandy Mott on American Horror Story: Freak Show, hails from Lenox. He also stars in the upcoming season of the anthology series, Hotel, with Lady Gaga.

Tom Bergeron
Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program

This is Tom Bergeron’s eighth consecutive nomination for hosting Dancing with the Stars—he won once, back in 2012. Recently, the former America’s Funniest Home Videos host penned his memories of growing up in Haverhill for the Boston Globe.

Alec Berg

Outstanding Comedy Series

Alec Berg is the Harvard-educated former writer for Seinfeld, who also worked on Curb Your Enthusiasm. For the second year in a row, he’s nominated for his work as writer and executive producer of HBO’s Silicon Valley, which takes at least some inspiration from the local tech scene.
