The 2023 Primetime Emmy nominations are in, highlighting the best and brightest television talent of the past season. While past winners including “Succession,” “Ted Lasso,” “The White Lotus,” and “Abbott Elementary” continue to dominate the field, newcomers like “The Last of Us,” “Beef,” “Wednesday,” and “The Bear” show that there’s something new under the sun. 

Having recently aired its final episode, “Succession” looms large over the nominees; the series garnered 27 nods, 14 of them for the ensemble cast. Particularly telling is the supporting actor in a drama category, which is exclusively made up of names from “Succession” (Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Alan Ruck, and Alexander Skarsgård) and “The White Lotus” (F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Will Sharpe, and Theo James). 

“The Last of Us” tallied the second most nominations of the year with 24, including a spot in the outstanding drama series category and first-time nods for stars Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal. The nomination is one of three for Pascal, who also landed in the guest actor in a comedy category for “Saturday Night Live” and in the outstanding narrator race for the CNN docuseries “Patagonia: Life on the Edge of the World.” 

Other performers with multiple nominations include Quinta Brunson (lead actress in a comedy for “Abbott Elementary” and guest actress for “SNL”), Murray Bartlett (supporting actor in a limited series for “Welcome to Chippendales” and guest actor in a drama for “The Last of Us”), and Melanie Lynskey (lead actress in a drama for “Yellowjackets” and guest actress in a drama for “The Last of Us”). 

The list also includes 38 first-time nominees, including Jenna Ortega (“Wednesday”), Aubrey Plaza (“The White Lotus”), Daniel Radcliffe (“Weird: The Al Yankovic Story”), and Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri (“The Bear”). 

Amazon Freevee’s genre-bending newcomer “Jury Duty” also became the first ever mashup of a scripted and reality show to earn Primetime Emmy nods. The series follows Ronald Gladden, a man who’s called to jury duty but is unaware that the case is fake and that his peers are all actors playing characters. That includes James Marsden, who scored a supporting actor in a comedy nod for portraying a fictionalized version of himself. The series is also up for outstanding comedy.

The ongoing Writers Guild of America strike is adding an air of murkiness to this awards season, with many wondering what the state of Hollywood will be come September. (During the nominations announcement, presenter Yvette Nicole Brown noted that the ceremony is “currently scheduled” to take place on Sept. 18.) SAG-AFTRA’s own negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers is set to end at midnight tonight.
