The 2022 Emmys Nominations List Is Full Of Surprise Nominees & Snubs

Zendaya received her second Emmy nomination for Euphoria, which earned an impressive 16 nods.

The cast and crew of Euphoria should be feeling very euphoric today. The 2022 Emmy Award nominations were announced on July 12, and the beloved HBO series landed its biggest total yet with an impressive 16 nods, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama for Sydney Sweeney, and Zendaya’s second nom for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama following her historic 2019 win. Sweeney was also recognized her turn in The White Lotus, while Zendaya recieved two noms for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics and an additional nod as a producer on Euphoria, making her the youngest producing nominee in Emmys history.

Overall, Succession racked up the most nominations with an astounding 25 nods, while Ted Lasso and The White Lotus trailed with 20 nominations apiece. Hacks and Only Murders In the Building followed with 17 nods each, but Murders star Selena Gomez was snubbed in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category. When it comes to networks, HBO and HBO Max dominated, scoring 140 nominations overall, aided by shows like Succession, Hacks, and Euphoria.

While down from last year, Netflix still garnered a respectable 105 nominations. The platform’s most successful show Squid Game made history, earning 14 nods and becoming the first foreign language show to be nominated for Outstanding Drama Series. Although the second part of Stranger Things Season 4 only premiered after the Emmys eligibility deadline, the Netflix sensation still scored an impressive 13 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, even though the show’s stars like Sadie Sink didn’t receive any nods (snubbed!).

The 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET. The show will be televised live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater with a live audience for the first time in three years, following 2020’s mostly virtual ceremony and 2021’s scaled-down show with a reduced number of attendees. The ceremony does not have a host yet, and while Chris Rock and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have both reportedly been offered the gig, neither actor is expected to accept the job.
