HBO is expected to dominate the Emmy nominations this year, with its shows “Succession,” “The White Lotus,” and “The Last of Us” all being strong contenders.
“Succession” is a dark comedy-drama about a dysfunctional family of billionaires. It has won two of the past three Emmys for best drama, and it is expected to be nominated again this year. The show’s stars, Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, and Kieran Culkin, are all likely to be nominated for best actor.
“The White Lotus” is a comedy-drama about a group of wealthy vacationers who end up at a cursed resort in Sicily. The show was a critical and commercial success, and it is expected to be nominated for several Emmys this year. The show’s stars, Jennifer Coolidge, Aubrey Plaza, and Meghann Fahy, are all likely to be nominated for best supporting actress.
The Last of Us is a TV show about a post-apocalyptic world that is based on a popular video game. The show stars Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, and it is expected to be a major contender for Emmys this year. The show’s creators, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann, are both likely to be nominated for best writing for a drama series.
The comedy categories are also wide open, with shows like “Barry,” “The Bear,” and “Abbott Elementary” all vying for nominations. “Barry” is a dark comedy-drama about a hitman who becomes an actor. The show’s star, Bill Hader, is likely to be nominated for best actor.
“The Bear” is a comedy-drama about a chef who inherits a sandwich shop. The show’s star, Jeremy Allen White, is likely to be nominated for best actor.
“Abbott Elementary” is a mockumentary about a public school. The show’s star, Quinta Brunson, is likely to be nominated for best actress.
The Emmy nominations will be announced on August 17. However, there is a possibility that the writers’ strike and the actors’ strike could prevent the ceremony from happening on September 18. The writers’ strike has been going on for 10 weeks, and the actors’ contract is set to expire just hours after the nominations are announced.
If both strikes happen, it would be a major blow to the Emmys. The writers are essential to the production of the ceremony, and the actors are the stars of the shows that are being nominated. Without them, the Emmys would be a much less exciting event.
