“Succession” and “The White Lotus” episodes),
Additionally, six of the eight supporting actresses took part.One thing in a nomination announcement full of surprises was a foregone conclusion:
“Succession” will win, and, Roy, did it ever: The departing HBO drama received 27 nods, which included nominations for best drama, lead actress (Sarah Snook), and a record-breaking three lead actor nominations (Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Jeremy Strong). Even a sizable portion of the supporting actors received acknowledgments, including Before the Tony Awards, Broadway is almost back to normal, but not without ticket inflation.
The final of us It is the first live-action video game adaptation to receive major award consideration thanks to Emmy nominations.
Regardless of what you call it (they now prefer to be called HBO-slash-Max), the network did well.
The top three shows, with Season 2 of “The White Lotus” (now a drama series, last year it was a limited series) receiving 23 noms, followed by “The Last of Us,” the first video game adaptation to garner significant Emmy attention, with 24 noms.
Four of the eight nominations for drama belong to it, which could make this year’s Emmy party a little awkward, but it’s still a posh issue. (If there is one omission, it’s because HBO-slash-Max doesn’t have a challenger in the limited series category, which it often rules, including the winner from the previous year.
“White Lotus,” a TV film that was once a surefire HBO triumph.)
Another year of haves and have-nots necessitated the Television Academy’s procedural adjustment, which restricted voters to choose only the permitted number of nominees for each category.
In the past, voters had their pick of any number. The purpose was to promote the Despite the abundance, voters are aware of their preferences and will place all their eggs in those baskets.
For instance, “The White Lotus” received three more nominations than in 2022, but “Succession” received two more than the 25 nominations from the previous year.
The biggest comedy of the year was “Ted Lasso,” which may or may not have finished its run after Season 3 on Apple TV+, with 21 nominations.
(That’s one more than the previous year’s total of 20, and only one short of the category record of 22 set by “30 Rock” in 2009).
‘Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey’ on Netflix
The most acclaimed limited/anthology series of the year was “Dahmer Story,” which received 13 nominations. With eight, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” on Roku was the best TV movie. The best unscripted series was “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” which had seven episodes.Depending on your opinion, HBO-slash-Max is either a streamer or a new name. A pay cable provider? ),
The streaming industry dominated the year once more. With 103 nominations, Netflix came in second place behind all other platforms, helped by “Beef,” “Dahmer,” and “Wednesday,” which all received double-digit ratings. Hulu, Disney+, and Apple TV+ persisted Even FX’s “The Bear,” the biggest basic cable show of the year, isn’t truly from a basic cable source since it is only available on the streaming service Hulu. In that situation, “Better Call Saul’s” last season on AMC is actually the basic cable show with the most nominations (seven). broadcasting was almost finished.
NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” is in first place with nine nominations, which is actually a lower-than-usual total for the sketch series, which didn’t receive a single acting nomination for the first time since 2008. ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” is the only scripted primetime series to receive any major nominations (eight total, including outstanding comedy).
In the drama competition, reigning champion “Succession” is up against “The White Lotus,” another reigning champion who has switched to drama, as well as “The Crown,” the previous category winner. The sequel to the previous drama winner “Game of Thrones,” “House of the Dragon,” is another. “Better Call” nominees from the past Yellow jackets and Saul are back, plus “Andor” and “The Last of Us,” two newcomers.
Ted Lasso, the comedy category winner from last year, is back for another round, and newcomers “The Bear,” “Jury Duty,” and “Wednesday” join past contenders “Abbott Elementary,” “Barry,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Only Murders in the Building.”
