Table of Contents

Attention all binge-watchers, telephiles, couch potatoes, and TV lovers! The highly anticipated Emmy nominations for 2023 have finally been unveiled.

This year marks the 75th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, scheduled to take place on September 18, 2023. The nominees were announced during an exciting virtual broadcast on July 12, hosted by the talented Yvette Nicole Brown from “Community” and “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” along with Television Academy Chair Frank Scherma.

The 2023 Emmys aim to honor the best of the small screen, recognizing outstanding programming that aired between June 1, 2022, and May 31, 2023. Last year’s Emmys, hosted by the hilarious Kenan Thompson, provided unforgettable moments. From Sheryl Lee Ralph’s triumphant win and melodic acceptance speech to Jennifer Coolidge’s outstanding performance in “White Lotus” earning her the prize for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. Quinta Brunson’s acceptance speech for Outstanding Writing was hilariously crashed by Jimmy Kimmel, while Zendaya made history as the youngest two-time winner for acting and the first Black woman to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series twice.

Can this year’s Emmy Awards surpass the previous spectacle? All signs point to an exceptional event. The nominations have recognized a multitude of remarkable shows and stars. Series such as the final season of “Succession,” HBO’s groundbreaking adaptation of the video game “The Last of Us” (featuring the incredible Bella Ramsey), and the network TV redefining sophomore season of “Abbott Elementary” all received nods. Other notable nominees include Jeremy Allen White and “The Bear,” “Yellowjackets,” Jenna Ortega and “Wednesday,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Beef,” Evan Peters and “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” “The White Lotus,” “Ted Lasso,” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Jenna Ortega has made history in multiple ways with her nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Not only is she now the second-youngest nominee in the category’s history, but she is also the first Latina to be nominated in the category since America Ferrera in 2007 for “Ugly Betty.” Additionally, she becomes the third Latina nominee overall (with Rita Moreno’s nomination in 1983 for “9 to 5”). The Hollywood Reporter points out that if the 20-year-old Ortega wins for her work in “Wednesday,” she will become the youngest-ever winner in the category, currently held by Ferrera, who was 23 when she won.

Furthermore, “The Last of Us” from HBO has made its own mark in history. It is the first live-action video game adaptation to be recognized by a major Hollywood awards institution. With an astonishing 24 nominations, TLOU has truly swept the nominations at this year’s Emmys. Are you ready to discover the rest of the talented individuals who made the cut?
