The State of the Race
Even before the Oscars finally happened, Emmy consideration was already top of mind for the wide swath of television shows that aired between June 1, 2022 and May 31, 2023, and those programs are now looking to score some recognition from TV Academy voters.

If last year, where all the shows delayed by the pandemic came back into the fold, was Peak TV, we have already approached the valley. With the ever-changing media landscape there are several Emmys contenders that are not even available on their network’s streaming service anymore. Shows that in another year would be a shoo-in for Emmy nominations are already canceled. Primetime network television in particular has not had any dramas breakthrough in a way that leads to awards attention.
Add in the fact that some big Emmy-winning titles like “Succession,” “Better Call Saul,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Barry,” and “Ted Lasso” are in their last year of contention, plus the curveballs of Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series winner “The White Lotus” now competing in the Drama categories, and the Variety categories being restructured in a way that now pits “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “Saturday Night Live” against each other, and 2023 is set up to have quite the exciting, transitional Emmys race.
