It’s that time of the year to root for your favorite shows, home buddies! The Television Academy has announced the nominees for the 2022 Emmy Awards with hosts JB Smoove and Melissa Fumero, and HBO’s Succession and Euphoria dominate the nominations with 25 and 16 nods respectively.

Netflix’s dystopian K-Drama series Squid Game also makes Emmy history as the first non-English-language series to notch a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. It scored 13 other nods, including Director Hwang Dong Hyuk being nominated for Outstanding Directing and Lee Jung Jae for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Euphoria’s Zendaya topped with 4 nominations, becoming the youngest two-time nominee for the lead actress category and the youngest nominee for producing.

She shared with Vanity Fair: “It’s absolutely insane. The show obviously means so much to me and so much to everyone who makes it. People put their absolute heart and soul into this, and I am so lucky to share this with all of them. I’ve already talked to so many people on FaceTime, and I have a lot more texts to send out. But I am so proud of our team and the work we do together. I’m very, very proud.”

Other two-digit nominated shows include: Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso (20), HBO’s The White Lotus (20), HBO Max’s Hacks (17), Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building (17), Apple TV+’s Severance (14), and Netflix’s Ozark (13) and Stranger Things (13).

The Television Academy tweaked a few things in this year’s Emmy Awards. Aside from not announcing which platform or network has the most nods in the nomination broadcast, the panel also removed time length restrictions for both comedy and drama series;  short-form categories are created for programs with less than 20 minutes of runtime.
