“Succession” and “Ted Lasso” lead Emmys race


HBO's “Succession” drama series, which follows the throes of a powerful family whose members plot and tear each other apart, came out on top of the race for the Emmy Awards, equivalent to the Oscars for American television, with 25 nominations in total. 

She will face in particular the South Korean series “Squid Game”, global success of Netflix, which has gone down in history as the first production in a language other than English to compete for the Emmy Awards in this flagship category.

Competition promises to be tight for the awards ceremony on September 12 with confirmed heavyweights like “Stranger Things”, “Ozark” and “Better Call Saul”.

As for comedies, “Ted Lasso” (Apple TV+), winner last year, leaves in pole position with 20 nominations. The series featuring an American football coach parachuted into an English football team will notably face “The Fabulous Mrs. Maisel”, “Barry” and “Hacks”.

For miniseries, it's “The White Lotus” (HBO), a satire on the hypocrisy and superficiality among the wealthy guests of a luxury hotel in Hawaii, which also stands out with 20 nominations.< /p>
