See the Complete List of Nominations

Awards season is back! Nominations for the 2022 Emmy Awards were announced on Tuesday, July 12, two months before the ceremony hits NBC.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero and Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s JB Smoove — who are set to costar in Netflix’s upcoming workplace comedy, Blockbuster — teamed up to host the nominations announcement on Tuesday. Television Academy chairman and CEO Frank Scherma also joined in on the festivities.

This year’s Emmys will recognize the best in TV airing between June 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022. The eligibility cutoff eliminates some recent buzzy shows — including The Bear, Ms. Marvel and Queer as Folk — which have taken summer viewership by storm.

Unlike the 2021 ceremony, which was broadcast on CBS and Paramount+, the 74th annual Emmys will air on NBC and Peacock. While a host has yet to be announced, the awards will take place on Monday, September 12, to accommodate for the network’s Sunday Night Football schedule.

Critical darlings and fan favorites alike took home major trophies at the 73rd annual awards in September 2021. The Crown and Ted Lasso swept the drama and comedy categories, respectively, with Mare of Easttown and Hacks providing steady competition. When Jason Sudeikis won Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as soccer coach Ted Lasso on the AppleTV+ hit, he sent a sweet shout-out to his family.

“Thank you very much. So yeah, heck of a year,” the Saturday Night Live alum, 46, gushed on stage. “I would say that this show is about family. This show is about mentors and teachers. This show is about teammates. And I wouldn’t be here without those three things in my life.”

The Virginia native continued, “I want to thank my folks, Dan and Kathy. My sisters Chris and Lizzie. My sisters that have been chosen outside of biology, Rachel. I want to thank my children, Otis and Daisy. … I want to thank folks at SNL. Lorne, who went to go take a dump now, perfect. He is going to get home — he’s going to watch. He loves watching the Emmys at home. It is fine. It’s fine. Which home is the big question!”

Production on season 3 of Ted Lasso is currently underway, but season 2 of the sports hit may be in the running for trophies at the 2022 Emmys. The Crown, Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Boys — all of which have debuted to critical acclaim — aren’t eligible for this year’s awards.
