Emmy Awards 2023: Comprehensive Guide to Nominations, Key Shows, and Historic Moments

NOTE: This article is 9 months old and may not include the most recent information.

The nominations for the 75th Emmy Awards have been announced, and the competition is as fierce as ever. Leading the pack are acclaimed series such as Succession, The Last of Us, The White Lotus, and Ted Lasso, all of which have garnered significant attention and praise.

HBO has once again emerged as the leader, continuing its legacy of excellence in television. The premium cable outlet and its sibling streamer, Max, have together amassed an impressive 127 nominations. This is a slight dip from the previous year, where they combined for 140 nods, but it’s still a remarkable achievement.

Among the actors earning nominations are Pedro Pascal for The Last of Us, Jeremy Strong for Succession, Quinta Brunson for Abbott Elementary, and Jenna Ortega for Wednesday. Notably, non-binary actor Bella Ramsey has also been recognized for their outstanding performance in “The Last of Us.” Emmy-nominated actress Yvette Nicole Brown and TV Academy chair Frank Scherma announced the nominees during a virtual ceremony.

In a historic moment for the Emmy Awards, Jenna Ortega has become the second-youngest nominee for best lead actress in a comedy for her role in Netflix’s Wednesday. At just 20 years old, Ortega is only older than Patty Duke, who was 17 at the time of her Emmy nomination in 1964 for her eponymous series The Patty Duke Show.

Ortega, known for her roles in Gen Z horror films like Scream and X, has garnered critical acclaim for her portrayal of Wednesday Addams in the Netflix comedy. The series, the first four episodes of which were directed by Tim Burton, reimagines the classic misanthrope created by Charles Addams. The show takes Wednesday away from her famous family and places her in Nevermore Academy where she is a misfit among a horde of otherworldly teens.

The host for the Fox ceremony has not yet been revealed, but Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay are set to produce the telecast.

The nominations for the 2023 Emmy Awards reflect the diverse and high-quality programming that has been produced over the past year. With so many talented actors and creative teams being recognized, the upcoming awards ceremony promises to be an exciting event. As we count down to the big night, all eyes will be on these top contenders.
