The nominations for this year’s Emmy TV awards have been unveiled, and the competition is fierce as Succession, The Last of Us, and The White Lotus lead the pack. These groundbreaking shows have garnered critical acclaim and captivated audiences with their exceptional storytelling. The talented stars in contention for acting prizes include Sarah Snook, Bella Ramsey, Jenna Ortega, and Jennifer Coolidge, who have delivered unforgettable performances that have resonated with viewers.
In the comedy categories, the contenders are equally impressive, with Ted Lasso, The Bear, Abbott Elementary, and Wednesday showcasing their comedic brilliance. These shows have brought laughter and joy to audiences, displaying a remarkable blend of wit and humor.
However, the fate of the Emmy TV awards ceremony hangs in the balance due to ongoing strike action in Hollywood. The Television Academy and Fox, the ceremony’s broadcast network, are grappling with the decision of whether to push the event back to November or even January. The industry eagerly awaits news on whether the actors’ union will proceed with a strike, which would bring major Hollywood events to a grinding halt, similar to the recent Writers’ Guild of America strike.
Among the nominees, British talents have received recognition in the acting categories, including Daniel Radcliffe, Taron Egerton, Brian Cox, Matthew MacFadyen, Juno Temple, and Hannah Waddingham. These performers have impressed audiences with their extraordinary range and skill, earning their rightful place among the nominees.
A noteworthy nomination goes to the iconic Sir Elton John, who is in the running for best live variety special for Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium. A win in this category would mark a significant milestone for Sir Elton, as it would complete his EGOT status, having already achieved success in the Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards.

In the drama series category, viewers can anticipate a gripping competition among Andor, Better Call Saul, The Crown, House Of The Dragon, The Last Of Us, Succession, The White Lotus, and Yellowjackets, each offering compelling narratives and stellar performances.

In addition, the outstanding limited or anthology series category showcases remarkable shows such as Beef, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Daisy Jones & The Six, Fleishman Is In Trouble, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. These series have pushed the boundaries of storytelling, captivating viewers with their unique narratives and compelling performances.
