HBO’s ‘Succession’ and ‘The Last of Us’ lead the 2023 Emmy nominations

The 2023 Emmy Awards nominations were announced Wednesday, with HBO and Max getting the most nominations and Netflix trailing behind. HBO/Max has earned 127 Emmy nominations, marking the 21st time HBO/Max has surpassed all networks and streaming services in one year.

Notably, HBO’s “Succession” had a record-breaking total, receiving 27 nominations. Last year, “Succession” was the most nominated show of 2022 with 25 nominations and took home four wins. Overall, the show has won 13 Emmys. The hit drama series wrapped up its final and fourth seasons in May.

Additionally, “Succession” features three actors nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series— Brian Cox (as Logan Roy), Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy) and Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy). This is the first time that three actors in a series have been nominated simultaneously for the Lead Actor category.

Other nominated HBO shows include the hit video game adaptation “The Last of Us” with 24 nominations and “The White Lotus” with 23 nominations.

Max’s closest competitor (formerly HBO Max) in this race is Netflix, which has racked up 103 nominations thanks to hits like “Wednesday”, “The Crown”, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”, “Beef” and “Dead to Me,” among others.

Hulu has continued to increase its tally, earning 64 nominations this year after hitting a record 58 in 2022. Hulu only earned 26 nominations in 2021. “The Bear”, a new Hulu series, was the most nominated with 13.

Once again, Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” made up the bulk of the streamer’s 54 nominations, for a total of 21, a minuscule increase from the previous year’s 20.

In terms of ad-supported free streaming services, The Roku Channel and Amazon Freevee got 12 and four nominations, respectively. Roku original “WEIRD: the Al Yankovic Story” got the most of the nominations with a total of eight, and Amazon Freevee’s “Jury Duty” had four.

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air September 18 on Fox. However, there is they say perhaps a delay, given the ongoing writers’ strike.
