HBO Max sweeps the Emmy nominations: the big favorites are yours

We already know the list of nominees for the Emmys 2023 and we can confirm what many already imagined seeing this year’s trajectory: HBO Max takes the cake in terms of chances of opting for the precious prize. And it is that 3 of the great favorites of this year belong to its platform, making it clear that it is still the queen of streaming when it comes to quality series.

Succession, The White Lotus and The Last of Us accumulate 74 nominations

74 nominations in three series. It is said soon. Yesterday the 2023 Emmy nominees were announced and if we add the nominations received only by Succession, The White Lotus and The Last of Us does not result in 74 options to win the precious statuette.

succession is the queen in this case with 27 candidacies. The fourth and final season has been the perfect climax to a series that has gone down in history as one of the best. It is not surprising that it is therefore up for drama series of the year, leading actress (for Sarah Snook), leading actor (for Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong and Kieran Culkin) or supporting actress, among many other distinctions.

As to The Last of Us, sneaks in with 24 nominations, proving once again that HBO’s adaptation of the famous video game has completely hit the bull’s-eye. His nominations include drama series, lead actress (for the young Bella Ramsey) and lead actor (for Pedro Pascal). It has been a real joy to also find Murray Bartlett and Nick Offerman, who starred in the mythical episode 3 that generated so much controversy for the simple fact of showing a (beautiful) love relationship between two men.

Last but not least, we have The White Lotus and its particular and hypnotic second season. Acid criticism of people’s vacations disgustingly Rica has convinced again with 23 nominations including Drama Series, five Supporting Actress nominations (Jennifer Coolidge, Meghann Fahy, Sabrina Impacciatore, Aubrey Plaza and Simona Tabasco) and three Supporting Actor nominations (F. Murray Abraham , Michael Imperioli, Theo James and William Sharpe), among other nominations.

Apple TV + also takes its slice of pie

The other big winner, without a doubt, is Apple TV + with ted lasso. His famous series about the coach of an English soccer team opts for 22 awardsa fantastic way to close a beautiful stage.

As you know, the series ended just a few weeks ago, saying goodbye forever to its loyal audience. ted lasso During its 3 seasons, it has given us a small oasis of peace and good vibes, with a simple plot and without great pretensions that, however, has made everyone smile. Those nominations are well deserved.

And what about Better Call Saul?

If you couldn’t stand it and you have taken a look at the official Emmy website, you will have verified that Better Call Saul is back on the charts with nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor, or Lead Actress.

This is because its last season was divided into two, with the second airing in July 2022, with which it was already included in the candidacy for the 2023 Emmys. Many pointed out that this edition would be the one that would do justice finally with the prequel series of breaking bada fantastic drama wonderfully acted by Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn that has never won a statuette.

The problem is that now we have as a rival The Last of Us or the last season of Succession, so things get quite complicated for the AMC series. We will see.
