2023 Emmys: A closer look at ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s’ 14 nominations

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is not slowing down for its last turn at the Emmys. For its fifth and final season, the period comedy on Amazon Prime Video is finishing exactly at the same amount it started with, at 14 Emmy nominations, almost a fifth of the streamer’s 2023 total of 68. This is the longest-spanning season for the show, covering five decades in nine episodes detailing the title character’s ascending career and destructive personal life. Among its mentions are its bid for Best Comedy Series, an honor that it has received its entire run (it won in 2018), as well as major categories it has succeeded in years past. Read on for a closer look at “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” 14 Emmy nominations.

The series is the second-most nominated comedy this year at the Emmys, behind only Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” with 21. Over on the ad-supported Freevee stream, “Jury Duty” contends with four nominations followed by, in ascending order of bids, ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” with eight, HBO’s “Barry” and Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” with 11, Netflix’s “Wednesday” with 12 and FX’s “The Bear” with 13.

Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein are the only actors to have received citations for all five seasons, and are back again in the Best Comedy Actress and Best Comedy Supporting Actress races, categories both women have won for the early seasons. Borstein will try for her third supporting trophy as Susie Myerson entering the episode “The Testi-Roastial” for consideration, while Brosnahan will go for bookend wins with the series finale “Four Minutes,” where her character Midge Maisel gives a memorable stand-up performance in the amount of time per the episode title.

Not surprisingly, the series finale is being recognized for multiple categories across the board with major noms for Luke Kirby in Best Comedy Guest Actor and creator Amy Sherman-Palladino for Best Comedy Directing; both are previous winners. The episode, which has multiple time jumps and wraps up the characters’ storylines, is additionally contending for cinematography and music supervision.

Borstein’s submission episode “The Testi-Roastial,” where Susie is honored and roasted at the New York Friars Club and is later fired by Midge for involving her career through her mob ties, is also cited for its sound mixing, while the subsequent episode “A House Full of Extremely Lame Horses” is up for period hairstyling.

The rest of the technical categories go to the show’s fourth episode “Susan,” where Midge performs in an industrial musical. It competes in period costumes, makeup and production design, with the song “Your Personal Trash Man Can” in original music and lyrics, and the dance routines “Trash Man” and “Dream Kitchen” together in scripted choreography.
