The Television Academy announced this year’s Emmy nominees on Tuesday, July 12, and as usual, we had thoughts to share on the matter.

TV is having a moment, and there was a mountain of shows across various channels, networks, and platforms that viewers were able to dive into this past year, also giving Emmy voters plenty to choose from. The list of nominees this year features the usual and expected, some surprises, newcomers, blatant snubs, as well as nominees that finally got their overdue recognition.

Shows like Euphoria, Succession, and Abbott Elementary impressed their respective audiences and critics this year, so hearing those names announced in various categories was no surprise. Streaming services like Netflix, Apple TV+ and Hulu continued to provide incredible content, adding shows like Squid Game and Only Murders in the Building to the Emmys mix.
