2023 Primetime Emmy Preview
Who’s leading the race? Well, if you’re going by network, HBO/Max remains at the front of the pack. Previously untouchable, the various streaming services have been inching their way up the producing line, but HBO is back on top again this year, with three megahits at the top of the list, and one more rounding out the top ten nominated series alone. The cable company stacked up a total of 127 nominations across all categories (including Creative Arts awards), and while that’s fewer than last year, they are the behemoth to beat.
The man who has stolen everyone’s heart in the last few years, Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso, is still a top contender with its final season, although with 21 nominations between primetime and creative arts, it comes in behind all three of HBO Max’s big hits. Those are led by Succession, which tops the list with 27 nods; its final season was the most-talked about, and the nominees are spread across multiple episodes, actors, and directors. However, we can bet that the Lasso cast is likely to take home some gold in the comedy acting categories again, and for the first time the show sees an Emmy nod for Phil Dunster, who plays the hot and egotistical, but surprisingly deep Jamie Tartt. Just ahead of it comes the new mega hit for HBO, The Last of Us (24 nominations) and season 2 of The White Lotus (23).
Past Emmy favorite The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Prime Video) takes a solid middle-of-the-pack seat with 14 nominations for its final season, as our favorite lady comic goes out with a bang.
Netflix is once again the next highest overall nominated studio after HBO, with 103 nominations, and three titles in the top 10: Beef (13), Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (13), and the surprise goth hit Wednesday (12). Its high nomination count as a studio is otherwise largely attributed to quantity, however, with nominations spread out over nearly 35 titles, and many past favorites and comfort watches stuck in the single digits, such as Stranger Things (6), The Crown (6), Queer Eye (6), Emily in Paris (3), and Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story (3).
At the bottom of the top 10 (well, 11, due to a tie) is HBO’s stalwart dark comedy, Barry, which ties for 11 nominations with Hulu’s also quirky if somewhat less dark murder comedy, Only Murders in the Building.
While Murders may be Hulu’s only official entry in the top 10, it could be mistaken for a second, as the streamer is the digital home of one of the surprise hits of the last two seasons, The Bear (13), produced by FX. While it just dropped a stunning season 2, it is actually the first season currently up for the awards.
It should also be noted that science fiction is putting Disney+ on the Emmy map with three separate Star Wars series raking in the nominations. While most of the noms for the limited-sereis Obi-Wan Kenobi and the popular Mandalorian may be in the Creative Emmy field (costumes, sound, effects, stunts, etc.), Andor has moved right up into the top Drama categories for series, writing, and directing.
