Emmy 2023 Nominations: ‘Succession’ and ‘The Last of Us’ lead the pack; ‘Ted Lasso’ scores record high

The excitement in Hollywood is palpable today as the 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards nominees were announced. Yvette Nicole Brown and Television Academy Chair Frank Scherma revealed a slew of nominees this morning, bringing smiles to many faces.

Leading the pack was “Succession” earning a hefty 27 nominations, while video game adaptation “The Last of Us” followed closely with 24 mentions, securing its historical position as the first video game adaptation to earn a major award nomination. Not far behind was “The White Lotus” with 23 nods. Clearly, HBO is having a fantastic day!

Lucasfilm shared in the excitement with both “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and “Andor” bagging major nominations. Pop culture favorites like “The Bear” and “Beef” also garnered significant nominations.

Despite the final season of “Ted Lasso” not receiving as much love as its predecessors, it still scooped 21 nominations, the highest for any comedy series.

The nominations this year are hotly contested across categories with names like “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” “Survivor,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” and “Welcome to Chippendales” among others in the mix.

“Beef”, “Obi-Wan Kenobi” and “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” are battling it out in the Best Limited or Anthology Series category.

Meanwhile, talented actors like Jeff Bridges, Elisabeth Moss, Jon Stewart, and Taron Egerton are receiving due recognition for their stellar performances in various categories.
