Though there are currently enough TV and streaming shows out there to serve as nominees for a dozen different award shows, the annual Emmy Awards remain the top-tier honors for the medium’s biggest shows. (Especially with the 2022 Golden Globes going untelevised after the prior year’s botched efforts.) We don’t yet know if or when a host will be revealed for the 74th Emmys ceremony, but we can now know what to expect when September 12 rolls around, with the Television Academy announcing this year’s nominations. 

More specifically, Brooklyn Nine-Nine powerhouse and future Bar Fight star Melissa Fumero and Curb Your Enthusiasm scene-stealer JB Smoove were there to deliver the good news (at least for the nominees). Most of the nominee categories remained unchanged for the 2022 ceremony, though with the Limited Series parameters getting more specific after prior winners and nominees opted for multiple seasons. Another distinction worth noting is that the Comedy and Drama submissions were left to the discretion of producers, as opposed to arbitrary rules regarding episode runtimes.

Check out the full list of nominees below, which will be updated as they’re announced live.

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
