In a nomination announcement filled with surprises, there was one that was absolutely a given: “Succession” would dominate, and, Roy, did it ever: The outgoing HBO drama scored 27 nominations — including best drama, lead actress (Sarah Snook) and a record three lead actor noms (Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong). Even a good chunk of the show’s supporting cast managed nods, including J. Smith-Cameron, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Alexander Skarsgård and (for the Conheads in the house) Alan Ruck.

It’s good to be HBO — er, “HBO Max” — er, “HBO / Max.” How big was the pay cabler-slash-streamer when it comes to this year’s Emmy nominations? In the supporting actor in a drama category, the outlet held all eight slots (on the backs of just two programs: “Succession” and “The White Lotus”), and in supporting actress, it was six of the eight.

It was another year of haves and have nots, which means the Television Academy’s procedural change — in which voters were limited to voting for just the number of nominees that were allotted in the category. (In years past, voters could select as many as they wanted). The idea was to spread the wealth around — but nonetheless, voters know what they like and will put all their eggs in those baskets. “Succession” actually landed two more nominations than last year’s 25, for example, while “The White Lotus” landed three more than in 2022.
