Nominations announced for 75th Emmy Awards: Succession leads with 27

Nominations for the 75th Emmy Awards were announced today from the Hollywood Athletic Club, recognizing extraordinary programming, performances, and a diverse range of exceptional storytelling across multiple platforms.
The live virtual ceremony was hosted by Emmy Award-nominated actress Yvette Nicole Brown and Television Academy Chair Frank Scherma. Click here to watch a recording of the announcement ceremony.

This season, the Emmy Awards celebrates its 75th Anniversary and the nominations were streamed live from the place it all began in 1949, the famed Hollywood Athletic Club. That relatively modest Los Angeles-area ceremony which featured just five awards categories and $5 admission tickets has evolved into television's biggest night, celebrating excellence throughout the industry and viewed by television fans around the world. In the age of "peak TV" with close to 600 original scripted series, the nominations recognize the importance of the performers, producers, writers, directors, craftspeople, and all those who worked on television programs in the past year.

There are more than 20,000 voting members of the Television Academy, and this year's nominations marked the highest voter participation in Emmy history.

Succession holds this year's top spot with 27 Emmy nominations followed by The Last of Us (24), The White Lotus (23), and Ted Lasso (21).

"We are thrilled with the historic level of participation from our voting members this Emmy season," said Scherma. "As we approach the remarkable milestone of the Emmys' 75th anniversary, the Academy is more appreciative than ever of another year of extraordinary content. We are honored to recognize those who have elevated the world's favorite global medium."

The nominations rosters, as compiled by the independent accounting firm of Ernst & Young LLP, may be revised in cases where names or titles are incorrect. Appeals for changes—including the addition or removal of names—are approved by the Television Academy's Emmy Awards Committee. Producer eligibility is based primarily on title; producer nominees in certain program categories will be announced mid-August and may increase the number of multiple nominees. Final-round online voting begins August 17, 2023.

The 75th Emmy Awards is currently scheduled to broadcast live on FOX on Monday, September 18, (8:00-11:00 PM EDT/5:00-8:00 PM PDT) from the Peacock Theater at L.A. LIVE. The 2023 Creative Arts Emmy Awards are currently scheduled to take place at the Peacock Theater over two consecutive nights on Saturday, September 9, and Sunday, September 10. An edited presentation is currently planned to air on Saturday, September 16, at 8:00 PM EDT/PDT on FXX.
