After several pandemic-constrained and scaled-down awards seasons, the Emmys are set to unfold this evening (12th September 2022) in the US – and the event looks set to be bigger than ever!


HBO’s Succession leads the pack with 25 nominations, including for best drama, while Ted Lasso and HBO’s limited series The White Lotus bagged a total of 20 nominations each.

Meanwhile, Hacks and Only Murders in the Building earned 17 nods each, and Netflix’s Korean hit Squid Game has made history as the first ever drama series nominee that isn’t in the English language.

Squid Game has 14 nominations overall, and will contend with Better Call Saul, Euphoria, Ozark, Severance, Stranger Things, Succession and Yellowjackets for the Outstanding Drama Series award.

The ceremony is being broadcast on NBC in the US, but how can viewers in the UK watch all the action, and when will it take place?
