"succession" aspires to lead nominations in some Emmys surrounded by uncertainty

drama series”succession” aims to repeat the success of last season, when he earned 25 Emmy nominations, and is presented as the top favorite to lead the nominations for these awards surrounded by uncertainty in its 2023 edition.

The US Television Academy will reveal this Wednesday at 8:30 local time (16:30 GMT) the candidates for these prestigious awards with its mind set on what happens in the afternoon that same day, when the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) make public whether or not it is going on strike.

In the case of not reaching an agreement with the large studys, the actors would join the pickets maintained by the Writers Guild (WGA) since the beginning of May and the American entertainment industry would be paralyzed with the first strike in 63 years that would involve two unions in this sector at the same time.

Thus, the 75th Emmy Awards, scheduled for September 18, is now up in the air since, if the strikes were successful, writers and performers would not attend a world-renowned gala.

Meanwhile, the US Television Academy is trying to offer an image of normality in the hours leading up to some nominations that will be presented by actress Yvette Brown (“The Black Lady Sketch Show”) and the institution’s own president, Frank Scherma.

If the premier category for best drama series left few surprises last year, awarding “Succession”, it seems that the HBO Max production will also reign in 2023 thanks to its last season, the end of which has been classified by the specialized press as ” one of the best in the history of television”.

In the shortlist of nominees for best drama series, everything indicates that the HBO Max platform will have other representatives of the stature of “The White Lotus” -which bagged 5 awards in 2022 and won for best limited series- or “The Last of Us”.

The rest of the titles with possibilities in this section are “Andor” (“Disney+), “Better Call Saul” (AMC), “The Crown” (Netflix) and “Yellowjackets” (Showtime), among others.

The Roy family dynasty could also expand its tentacles in the category of best actress in a drama series because Sarah Snook (“Succession”) starts as a favorite of a cast in which it seems that the British will also be Helen Mirren (“1923” ) and Bella Ramsey (“The Last of Us”).

In the male version of this section, the Chilean Pedro Pascal (“The Last of Us”) and the Mexican Diego Luna (“Andor”) could become the first Latinos to apply in this category since actor Jimmy Smits did the same in 1999.


The series “Ted Lasso” (Apple TV+) beat “Abbott Elementary” (“Abbott College”, Disney+) in a fierce battle last year that could also be repeated in 2023. Experts agree that they are the top candidates for best comedy series alongside “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Only Murders in the Building,” and “The Bear.”

Quinta Brunson (“Abbott Elementary”), Rachel Bronahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Hispanic Jenna Ortega (“Wednesday”) appear in all the nomination pools for best actress in a comedy this year along with Natasha Lyonne (” Poker Face”).

A fight that seems as even as the one that the iconic Steve Martin and Martin Short (“Only Murders in the Building”), Jason Sudeikis (“Ted Lasso”), Bill Hader (“Barry) and Jeremy Allen White (” The Bear”) for Best Comedy Performers.

Finally, the specialized Hollywood press agrees that productions such as “Beef”, “Black Bird” or “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” -as well as their leading actors and actresses- have a practically guaranteed place among the nominees in the different sections of limited series.
