The 2022 Emmy nominations were announced this week, and the list of shows, actors and crew in the running for an award demonstrate just how good television has been over the past year.
And with the weekend upon us, we thought, why not set some homework? Fun, entertaining, binge-worthy homework, obviously (you can find more
homework recommendations, on my Instagram highlight).
Listen: Mamamia's daily entertainment podcast The Spill discusses this year's Emmy noms. Post continues below audio.
So, from groundbreaking sitcoms to a gritty limited series, here are eight Emmy-nominated shows you'll love:
Let's start with the obvious.
Loving Succession probably makes up 80 per cent of my personality at this point, and I'm not alone, with the show's third season garnering the most Emmy nominations this year with a whopping 25.
If you're yet to get started on the series – which has already won nine Emmys, FYI – Succession is a satirical black comedy-drama about the Roy family, the dysfunctional owners of media conglomerate Waystar RoyCo. The series follows the Roy children as they lie, fight and backstab in their attempts to gain control of the company from their ruthless, manipulative father, Logan Roy (played by Brian Cox).
Succession is tense, hilarious, and sometimes jaw-droppingly uncomfortable. You'll never be the same once you know what "boar on the floor" means.
It's almost certainly set to go down as one of the best TV shows of all time, so get around it.
