Emmy Nominations 2022: ‘Succession,’ ‘Squid Game,’ ‘Only Murders in the Building’ Lead

Ted Lasso, Hacks, Euphoria, and Stranger Things also picked up multiple noms

Succession, Squid Game, and Only Murders in the Building will all vie for multiple prizes at the 74th Emmy Awards. This year’s nominees were announced today, July 12, during a virtual event hosted by J.B. Smoove and Melissa Fumero.

Succession led all nominees this year, picking up 25, including a nod for Outstanding Drama Series, and acting nominations for pretty much its entire core cast: Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, J. Smith-Cameron, Nicholas Braun, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew Macfadyen (Hope Davis, Sanaa Lathan, Harriet Walter, Adrien Brody, James Cromwell, Arian Moayed, and Alexander Skarsgård picked up nods for their guest turns on the show, too).

In the Outstanding Drama category, Succession — which won the prize last time it was nominated in 2020 — will compete against Euphoria, Ozark, Severance, Squid Game, Stranger Things, and Yellowjackets. 

The Outstanding Drama nod for Squid Game was one of 14 the South Korean smash picked up as it became the first non-English language show to land Emmy nominations in some of the top categories. The show’s stars also received various acting nods, including Lee Jung-jae, Jung Ho-yeon, Park Hae-soo, Oh Yeong-su, Lee You-mi.

Tying for the second most nominations is last year’s Outstanding Comedy Series winner, Ted Lasso, and Mike White’s hit HBO anthology, The White Lotus, both of which picked up 20 nominations. Hacks and Hulu’s breakout comedy, Only Murders in the Building, each picked up 17 nominations, followed by Euphoria with 16.

In the Outstanding Comedy Series category this year, Ted Lasso, Hacks, and Only Murders in the Building will compete against Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, What We Do In the Shadows, and Abbott Elementary. For Outstanding Limited Series or Anthology series, The White Lotus is up against Dopesick, The Dropout, Inventing Anna, and Pam and Tommy.
