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?
Better Call Saul
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

HOW CAN WE CHOOSE BETWEEN MURRAY AND NICK?!?

Hiam Abbass, 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.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Only Murders in the Building
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

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

Sam Richardson, Ted Lasso
Guest Actress in a Spectacle Series
Becky Ann Baker, Ted Lasso
Quinta Brunson, Saturday Night Live
Taraji P. Henson, Abbott Elementary
Judith Light, Poker Face

Would love to see Harriet Walter take it.

Lizzy Caplan, Fleishman Is in Trouble
Jessica Chastain, George & Tammy
Dominique Fishback, Swarm
Kathryn Hahn, Tiny Beautiful Things
Riley Keough, Daisy Jones and the Six
Ali Wong, Beef
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
Ray Liotta, Black Bird

Claire Danes, Fleishman Is in Trouble
Juliette Lewis, Welcome to Chippendales
Camila Morrone, Daisy Jones & The Six
Nicey Nash-Betts, Dahmer—Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story
Merritt Wever, Tiny Beautiful Things
This is probably Claire Danes’ to win.
