‘Succession’ leads the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations with 25 nods.

Brian Cox, who plays the patriarch of the media dynasty, Logan Roy, and his on-screen son Jeremy Strong are both up for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Nicholas Braun, Matthew MacFadyen and Kieran Culkin – who play Cousin Greg, Tom Wambsgans, and Roman Roy respectively – are all up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Sarah Snook and J. Smith Cameron – who bring to life Siobhan Roy and Gerri Kellman- are both up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

Apple+ sitcom ‘Ted Lasso’ and ‘The White Lotus’ both trail behind with 20 nominations, including Jennifer Coolidge, who is up for a gong for her work in the HBO series that she is due to reappear in the second series in an unconfirmed role.

HBO Max’s ‘Hacks’ and Hulu’s ‘Only Murders in the Building’ follow behind with 17 nominations each – however nothing for Selena Gomez.

The runaway South Korean hit ‘Squid Game’ has made history by becoming the first non-English language to be nominated in the Best Drama Series. The most watched Netflix series of all time secured a whopping 14 nominations, including the lead actor Lee Jung-jae being up for Lead Actor in a Drama series.
