Nominations for the 74th Emmy Awards were announced July 12, recognizing exceptional new programming and talent, returning favorites and veteran performers, and a broad spectrum of innovative storytelling across multiple platforms.
The live virtual ceremony was hosted by JB Smoove (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Melissa Fumero (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) along with Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma.
“Succession” holds this year’s top spot with 25 Emmy nominations followed by “Ted Lasso” and “The White Lotus” (20), “Hacks” and “Only Murders in the Building” (17) and “Euphoria” (16).
“Television continues to keep the world entertained, informed and connected. With production at a historic high, the Academy has received a record number of Emmy submissions this season,” Scherma said. “As we prepare for the entertainment industry’s biggest night, we are thrilled to honor the innovators, creators, performers and storytellers who are propelling this platinum age of television.”
Almost half of the directors nominated in the scripted directing categories were women. This season also saw women receive almost 40% of the nominations in the scripted writing categories. Thirty-four percent of this year’s nominees for Outstanding Writing in all writing categories were women.
In total, there were 50 first-time performer nominees across all performer categories this season including Chadwick Boseman (“What If…?”), Jennifer Coolidge (“The White Lotus”), Elle Fanning (“The Great”), Andrew Garfield (“Under the Banner of Heaven”), Jung Ho-yeon (“Squid Game”), Oscar Isaac (“Scenes From A Marriage”), Lily James (“Pam & Tommy”), Lee Jung-jae (“Squid Game”), Barack Obama (“Our Great National Parks”), Sheryl Lee Ralph (“Abbott Elementary”), Adam Scott (“Severance”), Sebastian Stan (“Pam & Tommy”), Peter Sarsgaard (“Dopesick”), Amanda Seyfried (“The Dropout”), and Sydney Sweeney (two first-time nominations, “Euphoria” and “The White Lotus”).
