"Succession" leads with 27 Emmy nominations as HBO breaks record

Nominations for the 75th annual Emmy Awards were unveiled on Wednesday morning, and HBO tied a record set by NBC in 1992, with four series — critically acclaimed fan-favorites "Succession" and "The White Lotus," along with the video game adaptation "The Last Of Us"  and "House of the Dragon," the "Game of Thrones" prequel — in the running for outstanding drama.
"Succession," which also led the pack of nominees in 2022, dominated the roster again this year, with 27 nominations in total for its final season.
The announcement — hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown, of "A Black Lady Sketch Show" and "Community," and Frank Scherma, who chairs the Television Academy — came at a tense time for Hollywood. Much of the industry is shut down as a deadline looms for more than 160,000 members of the SAG/AFTRA union, in addition to television and film writers, who have been on strike for over two months now. Opening Wednesday's presentation, Scherma said, "We hope the ongoing guild negotiations can come to an equitable and swift resolution."
Here are the contenders in the award show's top categories:
