Emmy Awards 2022: The biggest talking points

The 2023 Emmy Award nominees have been announced.

The annual award for the best TV programs takes place on September 18 this year, with the nominated programs being announced on Wednesday (July 12).

Shows eligible for Primetime Emmys must have aired in the United States between June 1, 2022 and May 31, 2023, with nominees being selected by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The nominations were announced on the live stream community Star Yvette Nicole Brown and Chairman of the Television Academy Frank Scherma. The host of the awards ceremony in September has yet to be announced.

Scherma could hardly introduce the awards without mentioning the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike that has brought the entertainment industry to a standstill. More than 11,000 screenwriters have been on strike for 72 days.

Scherma, who is also the president and co-founder of the production company RadicalMedia. Unsurprisingly, he expressed his wish that “the current guild negotiations can come to a just and speedy conclusion”.

successor writes history

Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong will compete for the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series category. These are the most actors ever nominated in the same show in this category.

HBO’s final series successor The series lived up to expectations and topped the nominations, earning a whopping 14 nominations as an actress and becoming a contender for Outstanding Drama Series (an award it has won twice).

“Yellowstone”, Prince Harry and Helen Mirren among the snubs

Taylor Sheridan’s hugely popular cowboy drama Yellowstone was put out to pasture again. He hopes the arrival of Matthew McConaughey, who will replace Kevin Costner in the series renewal, will bring him more favor with TV Academy.

Many awaited awards indicate that Helen Mirren will receive a nomination for her role in the film Yellowstone Consequence, 1923, in which she starred alongside Harrison Ford. Unfortunately no dice; However, Mirren already has four Primetime Emmys in her hands, so she’s unlikely to lose sleep over the snub.
