Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen are among Succession‘s 27 nominees | HBO

THE 2023 EMMYS are back on, so it would seem. After their initial date was claimed by the Hollywood strikes, the Emmy awards, which were originally slated to occur in November, were postponed. The ongoing strike by members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) is the largest walkout in 60 years. As part of the strike, those in the unions can’t work or do publicity, including awards shows — hence the postponement of the Emmys, and the delay on multiple projects from Gladiator 2 to Euphoria season three.

But now, awards show buffs will be pleased to hear that a new date has in fact been set—though they’ll have to wait a few months longer. The new ceremony will be held on January 15, 2024, according to a joint announcement from the Television Academy and ceremony broadcaster Fox. This marks the first time that the Emmy awards have been delayed since 2001, when the 9/11 terrorist attacks pushed the ceremony to November, rather than its usual September timing.

After its slate of critically acclaimed and publicly adored TV series over the past year, it was a surprise to absolutely nobody that HBO swept the Emmy nominations — with its series Succession, The Last of Us and The White Lotus earning the most nods.

Leading the pack as expected was the gripping corporate family drama Succession, with the Roys (and their allies and enemies) nabbing a massive 27 nominations — including Best Drama, lead actress for Australia’s own Sarah Snook, and three lead actor nods for Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and eldest boy Jeremy Strong. Supporting actors including J. Smith-Cameron, Nicholas Braun, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, and Alexander Skarsgård also had their work recognised — which was well deserved given the strength of some of the chaotic ensemble scenes from season four.

Next up was video game adaptation The Last of Us, which earned 24 nominations, including best drama and nods for its leads Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman and Storm Reid had their efforts to utterly destroy our hearts rewarded with guest actor nods, with the series earning seven in total for the guest star categories.

The White Lotus earned 23 nominations in total, nine of which were scattered among the supporting drama actor and actress categories. Jennifer Coolidge, Meghann Fahy, Sabrina Impacciatore, Aubrey Plaza, and Simona Tabasco will battle it out among the ladies; while F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Theo James and Will Sharpe will be up against each other (the remaining four nominations in that category all go to Succession, interestingly enough).

In the comedy categories, Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso led the way with 21 nominations. For its third (and likely final — plenty of discourse online about this) season, the heart-warming soccer story scored another best comedy nod, as well as acting nominations for Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham.

Other notable and well-deserved nods went to Netflix’s limited series Beef, with lead actors Steven Yeun and Ali Wong, and writer Lee Sung Jin nominated alongside a handful of supporting stars. Tim Burton’s Wednesday got a comedy nod too, as did its titular star, played by Jenna Ortega. The Bear, which for some reason is categorised as a comedy despite being one of the most stressful shows I’ve ever encountered, earned eight nominations — including best comedy, and acting nods for Jeremy Allen-White, Ayo Edibiri, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

Melanie Lynskey earned two acting nominations — lead drama actress for Yellowjackets, and guest actress for The Last of Us. Australian Bartlett did too — in addition to his The Last of Us nomination, he also nabbed one as a supporting actor in a limited series for Welcome to Chippendales.

What date are the 2023 Emmys?

It’ll start at 8pm US ET; but for us Aussies, that’ll mean January 16 at 12pm AEDT.

While his Emmys hosting debut, Anderson shared in a statement:” “When FOX asked me to host this historic telecast, I was over the moon that Taylor Swift was unavailable, and now I can’t wait to be part of the biggest night in television.”
