HBO’s Succession Scores 27 Emmy Nominations


HBO‘s acclaimed business drama Succession leads the Emmy nominations with The Last of Us, The White Lotus and Ted Lasso following.

The show received 14 acting nominations, including recognition for Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, and Sarah Snook. It is the first time in Emmy history that three actors from the same project have received lead actor nominations in the same category.

Along with Andor, Better Call Saul, The Crown, House of the Dragon, Yellowjackets, The White Lotus, and The Last of Us, it will compete for best drama series.

HBO’s video game adaptation garnered 24 nominations for its debut season, including nominations for stars Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, who became the most-nominated Latino actor in a single year after also receiving praise for Saturday Night Live and Patagonia: Life on the Edge of the World.

Snook and Ramsey will compete for best actress in a drama series against Sharon Horgan for Bad Sisters, Melanie Lynskey for Yellowjackets, Elisabeth Moss for The Handmaid’s Tale, and Keri Russell for the Netflix blockbuster The Diplomat.

The 75th anniversary event is scheduled for September 18, but a writers’ strike and a likely actors’ strike might cause a significant delay. According to reports, depending on guild resolutions, November or January might be feasible months. The Daytime Emmys have been moved from its regular June date to an unspecified date this year.

“We hope the ongoing guild negotiations can come to a swift and equitable conclusion,” the television academy president, Frank Scherma, said during this morning’s announcement.
