The Environmental Media Association (EMA) has announced the nominees for its 27th annual awards. Netflix and Fox lead the pack with four nominations each.

Nat Geo, Hulu, and HBO received three nominations apiece. Disney hopes to take home a second consecutive feature film award for “Moana” after winning last year with “The Jungle Book.” “The Blacklist” also returns after taking the television drama category last year, as well as “The Simpsons” in the television comedy category, which would be the show’s third consecutive win and ninth overall in the category.

Jaden Smith, a member of the EMA board, will host the awards. The show will also honor Russell Simmons with EMA’s Mission in Music Award. Other honorees have yet to be announced. The event takes place at Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport on Sept. 23.
