The 2022 Emmy Award nominations are finally here! On July 12, J.B. Smoove and Melissa Fumero revealed a portion of this year's stacked pool of nominees via a live-streamed event, with fan-favorite shows like "Euphoria," "Succession," "Only Murders in the Building," "Ted Lasso," and "Squid Game" snagging multiple nominations each.

Issa Rae scored a nomination for "Insecure" for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, successfully capping off the show's epic five-season run. Meanwhile, "Euphoria" earned 17 total nominations, including for outstanding drama series and for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for Zendaya's performance. "Squid Game" made history as the first non-English series to score a nomination in the main drama category.

"Euphoria" swept the 2020 Emmy Awards and is expected to perform similarly this year in addition to "Succession," which earned a record of 25 total nominations, and "Ted Lasso," which scored a whopping 20 nods.

"Stranger Things" received 16 nominations, while "Yellowjackets" earned eight and Quinta Brunson's "Abbott Elementary" followed with seven. Unfortunately, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston were snubbed by the Television Academy for their performances in "Gaslit" and "The Morning Show," respectively.

There's a lot of Emmy-worthy competition being considered this year, and fans are eager to see who cleans up come time for the televised ceremony. The 74th annual primetime Emmy Awards will air on NBC on Sept. 12. Ahead, check out this year's list of nominees.
