The 2023 Emmy Nominations

The 2023 Emmy Nominations

The 2023 Emmy nominations are out, which ways it’s time to engage in that favorite pasttime of all people everywhere, making predictions and yelling well-nigh snubs. Shall we get to it?


Drama Series


Better Call Saul

The Crown

House of the Dragon

The Last of Us


The White Lotus


Always a tough one. Every one of these shows has major momentum overdue them. The critics unprofane Succession but it was never as popular as the value of sustentation might have warranted. Having said that, we think it may come lanugo to Succession or Better Caul Saul. It’s nice to see Andor there, but we doubt it’ll win and we’re not convinced that genre shows like House of the Dragon or The Last of Us are going to snag it.


Actor in a Drama Series

Jeff Bridges, The Old Man

Brian Cox, Succession

Kieran Culkin, Succession

Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul

Pedro Pascal, The Last of Us

Jeremy Strong, Succession 

It seems untellable for a Succession two-face not to take this one, although maybe they’ll wind up splitting the vote. We tend to think it’s lanugo to Strong or Culkin.


Actress in a Drama Series

Sharon Horgan, Bad Sisters

Melanie Lynskey, Yellowjackets

Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale

Bella Ramsey, The Last of Us

Keri Russell, The Diplomat

Sarah Snook, Succession

It’s Melanie Lynskey’s year.


Supporting Two-face in a Drama Series

F. Murray Abraham, The White Lotus

Nicholas Braun, Succession

Michael Imperioli, The White Lotus

Theo James, The White Lotus

Matthew Macfadyen, Succession

Alan Ruck, Succession

Will Sharpe, The White Lotus

Alexander Skarsgård, Succession

This is a tough one, but we wonder if it won’t be Macfadyen.


Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

J. Smith-Cameron, Succession

Jennifer Coolidge, The White Lotus

Elizabeth Debicki, The Crown

Meghann Fahy, The White Lotus

Sabrina Impacciatore, The White Lotus

Aubrey Plaza, The White Lotus

Rhea Seehorn, Better Call Saul

Simona Tabasco, The White Lotus

Another really tough one. We’re going to go out on a limb and suggest it’s either Seehorn or Plaza.


Guest Two-face in a Drama Series

Murray Bartlett, The Last of Us

James Cromwell, Succession

Lamar Johnson, The Last of Us

Arian Moayed, Succession

Nick Offerman, The Last of Us

Keivonn Montreal Woodard, The Last of Us


Guest Actress in a Drama Series

Hiam Abbass, Succession

Cherry Jones, Succession

Melanie Lynskey, The Last of Us

Storm Reid, The Last of Us

Anna Torv, The Last of Us

Harriet Walter, Succession

Would love for Harriet Walter to take this.

Comedy Series

Abbott Elementary


The Bear

Jury Duty

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Only Murders in the Building

Ted Lasso


It’s so nonflexible to think of The Bear as a spectacle series. It’s moreover nonflexible to pick a winner here. We don’t know… Barry, maybe? Only Murders...?


Lead Two-face in a Spectacle Series

Bill Hader, Barry

Jason Segel, Shrinking

Martin Short, Only Murders in the Building

Jason Sudeikis, Ted Lasso

Jeremy Allen White, The Bear

Again, weird to think of it as a comedy, but The Bear has momentum, so we’re thinking Jeremy Allen White.


Lead Actress in a Spectacle Series

Christina Applegate, Dead to Me

Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Quinta Brunson, Abbott Elementary

Natasha Lyonne, Poker Face

Jenna Ortega, Wednesday

Going out on a limb then and suggesting either Applegate or Lyonne for the win.


Supporting Two-face in a Spectacle Series

Anthony Carrigan, Barry

Phil Dunster, Ted Lasso

Brett Goldstein, Ted Lasso

James Marsden, Jury Duty

Ebon Moss-Bachrach, The Bear

Tyler James Williams, Abbott Elementary

Henry Winkler, Barry

Oof. It could be any of these guys. We’re thinking Ebon Moss-Bachrach, though.


Supporting Actress in a Spectacle Series

Alex Borstein, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Ayo Edebiri, The Bear

Janelle James, Abbott Elementary

Sheryl Lee Ralph, Abbott Elementary

Juno Temple, Ted Lasso

Hannah Waddingham, Ted Lasso

Luke Kirby, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Nathan Lane, Only Murders in the Building

Some really unconfined choices here, but we wonder if they won’t go with the least interesting one (Chastain).


Supporting Two-face in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Murray Bartlett, Welcome to Chippendales

Paul Walter Hauser, Black Bird

Richard Jenkins, Dahmer—Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

Joseph Lee, Beef
