Emmy Award voters must like sequels, because the nominations for this year’s ceremony look a lot like last year’s, with one historic exception.
Previous Emmy darling Succession collected the most nominations, with 25, including best drama series and picks for almost every actor who worked on the HBO show.
But joining the media mogul series in the drama category was the dark Netflix show Squid Game, as the South Korean series became the first non-English series nominated for an Emmy. Its star, Lee Jung-jae, was nominated for lead drama series actor.
Trailing Succession with the most nominations was Ted Lasso and The White Lotus, each with 20. Ted Lasso was shortlisted for best comedy series, and star Jason Sudeikis for lead comedy actor. The White Lotus will compete for the limited or anthology series Emmy, with eight of its cast members nominated in the supporting actress and actor races.
Among the more notable snubs: Neither Yellowstone nor This is Us made the cut for drama series, while Atlanta and The Afterparty failed to be nominated for comedy series.
The Television Academy did not immediately list which networks and streaming platforms collected the most nominations, but it was clearly a good morning not only for HBO (multiple nominees included The White Lotus and Barry) but also Netflix (whose Stranger Things and Ozark did well).
When it comes to overall diversity, however, the Emmy nominations (and likely favorites to win) still lean heavily toward white performers and white-led ensembles.
The Emmy awards ceremony will be broadcast on Monday, Sept. 12 on NBC and Peacock.
