The TV industry came back swinging in 21/22 after years of pushed productions and on-set shutdowns and this year’s nomination options seem almost endless. From the triumphant return of HBO/Crave’s Euphoria, to Netlfix’s record-breaking new season of Stranger Things, and the epic third season of HBO/Crave’s Succession - this year was STACKED!

Ahead of the 74th Emmy Awards ceremony, Curb Your Enthusiasm star JB Smoove and Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Melissa Fumero, along with Television Academy Chairman Frank Scherma announced the nominees for the September 22 awards show.

HBO + Crave content swept the ceremony with HBO/HBO Max garnering a whopping 140(!) total nominations. Succession led the pack, snagging 25 nominations.

Other HBO + Crave shows that rose above: anthology comedy hit The White Lotus (20 nominations), the sophomore season of Hacks (17 nominations), and Twitter conversation record-breaker Euphoria (16 nominations)

Along with picking up an Outstanding Lead nomination for Euphoria, Zendaya also became the youngest person ever to get a Producer nomination AND the youngest person to receive more than one nomination. Co-star Sydney Sweeny also picked up two awards in the supporting actress category for both Euphoria and The White Lotus, respectively.

A surprise of today’s nominations: freshman Apple+ series Severance picking up 14 nominations!

Both Lizzo and Adele picked up Emmy nominations today for Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls and Adele: One Night Only, respectively.
