Nominations for the 74th annual Emmys were announced on Tuesday with Succession and Ted Lasso leading the pack. Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) read the list of nominees on a livestream.

HBO’s Succession, which chronicles a ruthless family and its media empire, had the most nominations with 25, followed by the Apple TV+ soccer comedy Ted Lasso with 20 nods.

HBO’s other smash hit Euphoria gained 16 nominations. The show follows a group of teens dealing with drug addiction and coming to terms with their sexuality. FX’s uproarious vampire comedy What We Do In The Shadows snagged nominations for writing and Best Comedy, but, criminally, came up empty-handed in the acting department.

HBO’s White Lotus, however, did extremely well in the acting categories, snagging an astounding eight nominations for its cast, including Murray Bartlett, the resort’s harried gay general manager. The show’s creator, Mike White, also received nods for writing and directing.

RuPaul’s Drag Race garnered four nominations. The VH1 show’s namesake made history at last year’s 73rd Emmys, becoming the most-awarded person of color in the award show’s history with eleven wins.

Openly gay actor/writer Bowen Yang (Fire Island)was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on Saturday Night Live, while co-star Kate McKinnon was nominated on the same show as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Netflix’s Squid Game made history by being the first non-English-language show to compete in the best drama category, squaring 14 nominations.
