Succession is set to win big at the upcoming 2022 Emmy Awards.

The HBO series, which stars Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, and Brian Cox, landed a whopping 25 nominations during a virtual announcement of the nominees hosted by JB Smoove and Melissa Fumero on Tuesday.

In addition to garnering a nod for Best Drama Series, Strong and Cox are to compete in the Best Actor in a Drama Series category, while Succession co-stars J. Smith-Cameron and Snook will go head-to-head for the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series prize.

Elsewhere, Culkin, Nicholas Braun, and Matthew Macfadyen will all vie for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for their performances in the hit programme.

"Television continues to keep the world entertained, informed, and connected. With production at a historic high, the Academy has received a record number of Emmy submissions this season," said Television Academy Chairman and chief executive Frank Scherma. "As we prepare for the entertainment industry's biggest night, we are thrilled to honour the innovators, creators, performers and storytellers who are propelling this platinum age of television."

In total, there were 50 first-time performer nominees across all performer categories this season, including The Great’s Elle Fanning, Squid Game’s Jung Ho-yeon, Scenes from a Marriage’s Oscar Isaac, Severance’s Adam Scott, Amanda Seyfried for The Dropout, as well as Sydney Sweeney – who is in the running for her work on Euphoria and The White Lotus.

The Emmy Awards will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on 12 September.
