Can the Roy family win yet another high-stakes competition with brutal rivals? Will Ted Lasso and UFC Richmond win more titles?
HBO’s “Succession” and AppleTV+’s “Ted Lasso” were among the most nominated titles for 74th annual Emmy Awards, but they face steep competition from shows like “Squid Game,” “Severance,” “Abbott Elementary” and “Hacks.”
“Saturday Night Live” cast member Kenan Thompson is set to host the ceremony which will take place Monday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC and streamed live on Peacock from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
While the ceremony typically airs on Sunday, NBC also has broadcast rights to National Football League games on Sunday nights, so it has opted to showcase the award winners on Monday.
There are 50 first-time performer nominees on this year’s ballot including Jennifer Coolidge (“White Lotus”), Elle Fanning (“The Great”), Andrew Garfield (“Under the Banner of Heaven”) and Jung Ho-yeon (“Squid Game”).
“Succession” earned 25 nominations, the most of any series, while “Ted Lasso” and HBO’s “The White Lotus” each garnered 20 nominations. Following close behind were HBO Max’s “Hacks” and Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” — each with 17 nominations — and HBO’s “Euphoria,” which nabbed 16.
The Television Academy did not break out awards by network this year. Last year, there was some mild controversy about how nominations were tallied, as many networks also have streaming services. While it seemed suitable to lump network shows and streaming shows from the same company together, some in the industry felt they should be considered separate distributors.
