The 2022 Emmy nominations announced Tuesday included multiple nods to series like "Succession" and "Ted Lasso."
Several actors, including Sydney Sweeney and Bill Hader, received multiple acting nominations.
Other nominees, like Zendaya, Selena Gomez, and Netflix's "Squid Game," earned historic nods.
Chadwick Boseman, Norm Macdonald, and Jessica Walter all earned posthumous nominations.
Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer in August 2020, earned a posthumous nomination for his voice-over work as T'Challa in the Marvel animated series "What If...?"
Jessica Walter, who died in March 2021, earned her second posthumous nomination for her voice-over work in "Archer."
Sydney Sweeney earned double nominations for her roles in "The White Lotus" and "Euphoria."
Sweeney played the chaotically needy teenager Cassie on "Euphoria" and snarky college student Olivia Mossbacher on "The White Lotus." She was nominated for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for the former and outstanding supporting actress in a limited or anthology series or movie in the latter.
Julia Garner was also double-nominated.
She earned nods for "Inventing Anna" and the final season of "Ozark."
Bill Hader also earned two acting nominations.
Hader was nominated in both the outstanding lead actor in a comedy series and outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for his performances in "Barry" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," respectively. The actor also received nods for "Barry" in the outstanding writing for a comedy series and outstanding directing for a comedy series categories.
Rhea Seehorn picked up two acting nominations as well.
Seehorn was nominated in the outstanding supporting actress in a drama series and outstanding actress in a short-form comedy or drama series categories, for her work in "Better Call Saul" and "Cooper's Bar," respectively.
And Harriet Walter scored a double acting-nomination.
Walter earned two guest actress nominations in the comedy and drama series categories, for her respective performances in "Ted Lasso" and "Succession."
Quinta Brunson became the first Black woman to earn three same-year nominations in comedy categories.
Brunson is the creator and star of the ABC series "Abbott Elementary." She was nominated for outstanding comedy series, lead actress in a comedy, and writing for a comedy series, making her the first Black woman to earn three Emmy nominations in the comedy categories in a single year, according to Variety. Thirty-two-year-old Brunson is also the youngest Black female performer ever nominated in the comedy acting category, per the magazine.
"This Is Us" was virtually shut out for its final season.
The NBC series earned 39 nominations in previous years, winning four Emmy Awards and one Television Academy honor. This year, it received only one nomination for outstanding original music and lyrics.
"Squid Game" is the first non-English language series to be nominated for outstanding drama at the Emmys.
The Netflix series earned a nomination for outstanding drama series, along with acting nods for lead actor Lee Jung-Jae, supporting actors Park Hae-soo and Oh Yeong-su, supporting actress Jung Ho-yeon, and guest actress Lee You-mi. Series writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk also scored multiple nods, picking up nominations for outstanding drama writing and outstanding directing for a drama series.
The series was a hit with critics and audiences alike. The show's characteristic jumpsuits have become a popular Halloween costume option.
"Stranger Things" picked up 13 nominations this year — but not a single one in an acting category.
"Stranger Things" season four, part one just barely snuck in under the eligibility window for this year's Emmys. The first seven episodes of the season, which premiered on Netflix on May 27, were eligible, while the last two, which premiered on July 1, were not.
While the show earned 13 nominations in a number of creative arts categories, as well as outstanding drama series, none of its actors scored a nomination this year. That includes season standout Sadie Sink, as well as breakout star Millie Bobby Brown.
In fact, "Stranger Things" has only ever earned five acting nominations at the Emmys: David Harbour and Millie Bobby Brown were both nominated in 2017 and 2018, and Shannon Purser was nominated in the guest actress category for her role as Barb Holland in 2017.
Starz got snubbed once again.
The network behind hits like "P-Valley" and "Power" recruited A-list stars like Julia Roberts and Sean Penn for its Watergate thriller "Gaslit," but it was not enough to earn any Emmy nods in major acting, writing, and directing, categories this year. (The only Starz series to get any nominations at all was "Gaslit," which was nominated in four categories: cinematography, prosthetic makeup, sound editing, and sound mixing.)
The network has been historically shut out and in 2016 CEO Chris Albrecht told Deadline he didn't think their series would "ever break through." 50 Cent, who co-created the incredibly successful Starz TV universe "Power" alongside Mark Canton, spoke to Insider in February about his frustration that the series had never received an Emmy nomination.
"It feels like the success of 'Get Rich or Die Tryin'' when you can outperform the other projects and they still pick what's acknowledged," he told Insider, comparing the show to his 2003 album.
Christina Ricci earned the second Emmy nomination of her career — 16 years after her first nod.
Ricci was nominated for her performance as Misty on "Yellowjackets" in the outstanding supporting actress in a drama series category. She was previously nominated for outstanding guest actress in a drama series in 2006 for her role as Hannah on "Grey's Anatomy."
Selena Gomez became the second Latina to be nominated for outstanding comedy series as a producer.
Despite getting snubbed out of a nomination for lead actress in a comedy series once again, Gomez was nominated as an executive producer as part of the team behind "Only Murders in the Building," which got a nod for outstanding comedy series.
In doing so, Gomez became the second Latina to have ever been nominated as a producer in the category, Variety reported. Salma Hayek was nominated as an executive producer for the ABC series "Ugly Betty" in 2007, making her the first.
Zendaya is now a five-time Emmy nominee, and the youngest woman ever nominated for producing at the Emmys.
Zendaya was nominated in four categories at the 2022 Emmys, all for her work on the HBO series "Euphoria." She earned a nomination for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, as well as two nominations in the outstanding original music and lyrics category.
As an executive producer on the series, she's also part of the team behind the show's outstanding drama series nomination. That nod made Zendaya, 25, the youngest woman to ever receive a producing nomination at the Emmys, TV Line reported. It also brought her total number of career Emmy nominations up to five; she previously became the youngest woman to win best actress in 2020 for "Euphoria."
Dave Chappelle was nominated for his Netflix special "The Closer," despite backlash over transphobic jokes.
Dave Chappelle's Netflix comedy special "The Closer" earned two nominations for outstanding variety special and and outstanding directing for a variety special.
The nods follow criticism that some of the jokes in the special were transphobic. As Insider previously reported, Chappelle defended author JK Rowling's comments about trans people in the special and said that he was "Team TERF" (an abbreviation that stands for "Trans Exclusive Radical Feminist") in the special. Netflix employees walked out in October in protest after Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos defended Chappelle and the special in an internal memo, Insider previously reported.
