The Complete List of 2022 Emmy Nominations

For the first time in memory, the Television Academy announced this year’s Primetime Emmys nominees without an acknowledgement of which network or platform leads the list. That left programmers like HBO and Netflix scrambling to count their nominations in the quest for this year’s bragging rights.

Instead, the TV Academy argues that the shows are the thing, and to that end, the tally was clear: “Succession” was the most-nominated program of 2022, earning 25 nods — including outstanding drama. That was followed by “Ted Lasso” with 20 nominations (including best comedy, tying its total from last year) and then “The White Lotus,” the most-recognized limited series with 20.

The Academy’s decision to stay out of the way of those network tallies comes after controversial, and sometimes inconsistent, counts in recent years as the streaming era makes the whole notion of networks a bit hazy. Eventually, after everyone scrambled to do the math themselves, it became clear that the combo of HBO/HBO Max led this year with 140 nominations (108 for HBO, 32 for HBO Max), followed by Netflix with 105.

Last year, that led to a bit of a messy situation where HBO and HBO Max were jointly crowned the year’s leader, with 130 nominations. The outlets are both operated under the same Casey Bloys umbrella, and the shows are all campaigned together by the same awards team, the argument went. But that didn’t sit well with Netflix, which was close behind with 129 — and would have been considered the leader in a time when different platforms weren’t merged: Separate the two, and HBO received 94 nominations, and HBO Max picked up 36.

FX produces shows for Hulu, but would rather those series be credited to FX — even if they never aired on the linear channel. Nat Geo does the same thing for Disney+, yet those shows are credited to Disney+, not Nat Geo. Similarly, MTV’s “The Real World Reunion” series now airs on Paramount+ — but MTV Entertainment Group prefers to tally its nominations as a conglomerate, not via individual outlets. Disney would like to point out that its entire company (including ABC, Hulu, Disney+, FX Networks and Freeform) should be held up as a whole to Netflix, and in that case, they’re competitive (and last year beat both Netflix and HBO/HBO Max as a combo, with 146).

That’s a long way of saying, the Academy — in allowing networks and platforms to choose how their shows are credited — has also realized that it can’t win by putting them together in an apples-and-oranges tally. So this year, it just didn’t.

“In some ways I think I would prefer the Academy just to step out of the platform, for lack of a better word, ‘wars’ altogether,” TV Academy president Maury McIntyre told Variety in 2021 — and this year he stayed true to his word. “We don’t ultimately care. We’re here to honor the work… Our partners can slice and dice it however they want. We can only go off what we have given from a submission perspective. And that’s how we report it out. How was it reported to us in terms of its platform or its network, etc. But, it’s a question for me moving forward as to whether we should be inserting ourselves in that count.”
