Being a part of this show is so exciting because I have the chance to work with such talented and deserving actors. No matter how big or small the role is, the actors step up to the plate because the roles and writing are so incredible and demand so much of us. We are enormously lucky and grateful to be able to perform such first-class work. The scripts are so good that you get the best actors doing their best work, and it couldn’t be better.”

    Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

    “I am thrilled beyond words for this nomination. Yes, I’ve been nominated in this category before, but this is particularly special because of the intense experience of this final season of Saul shooting, the amazing writing as Jimmy/Saul becomes yet ANOTHER iteration of himself, the wonderful work by my castmates, our amazing guest cast, and just the density of feelings in front of camera and behind in a momentous year. I am especially thrilled for my scene partner and friend Rhea Seehorn whose outstanding, wonderful, multi-facted performance is rightly being celebrated. This show is one-of-a-kind and I’ll treasure each of these high points, there have been so many, and I’m thankful for everything.”

    “I am away at a remote little island in a lake in Canada. I’m at a kind of family reunion of my husband’s family – they lost both their beloved parents this year and this was their special place. It is a happy, loving occasion, though, in a physically beautiful unspoiled place. I am only able to get or send random texts, so I didn’t hear about my nomination for a while. I really didn’t expect it, but I’m absolutely thrilled – because I sort of started as a recurring character and we all collaborated into it being this wonderful, specific role that I’m delighted to play. The whole Succession cast is SUPERLATIVE and I’m thrilled that so many of us have been acknowledged. This is just a fantastic thrill! This show is absolutely a one-of-a-kind experience – Jesse is a raving genius and seems to have hired all the right people!”

I’m so happy for the recognition that the series, it’s creatives, and my fellow co-stars received this morning!”

    Sarah Snook, Succession, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

    “How exciting to get this kind of news when we’ve just started shooting again on Season 4! I’m so very, very proud of everyone who works on the show; magicians weaving angry, hurt, hilarious magic.”

This is the cherry on our sundae and wind in our sails as we finish our final season. Shoutout to our marvelous crew and fellow nominees!”

    Quinta Brunson, Abbott Elementary, Seven Nominations Including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

    “What an honor to be nominated by the Television Academy. Creating this show has been the greatest gift and to have it recognized in this way is the dream. It’s a joy we get to share with the amazing people who watched our first season. None of this would be possible without my incredible, supportive EP’s Justin Halpern, Randall Einhorn & Patrick Schumacker, our incredible writers room, our insanely talented cast, and the hard-working teams at ABC and WBTV for helping to bring Abbott Elementary to life. Lastly, and most importantly, I want to thank teachers. Thanks for being our inspiration.”

    Kaley Cuoco, The Flight Attendant, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

    Elle Fanning, The Great, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

    “I can’t put into words what “The Great” means to me. To be recognized for playing Catherine, a character who has shaped me personally in so many ways, is a moment I will never forget. And Jean, Quinta, Rachel, Kaley, and Issa, sharing this nomination with you makes it all the more meaningful. We are on set filming season 3 right now and my partner in comedy, Nicholas Hoult broke the news to me with the crew and my fellow cast mates by my side. Wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! Getting to celebrate alongside him, Fran di Mottola, the magician production designer who builds our transportive sets, and Sharon Long, our costume designer who adorns us in her glorious creations is truly special. But it all would be meaningless without Tony McNamara’s vision. His words and imagination are what bring us to work every day and push us to “greater” heights. HUZZAH ! Thank you to the Television Academy for this unbelievable honor!”

    Hannah Einbinder, Hacks, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

    “When I think about the work the incredible women in this category have done, I’m so deeply humbled to be among them. It really is an honor just to be nominated!”

    Sheryl Lee Ralph, Abbott Elementary, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

    “I am so deeply honored and completely overwhelmed with an abundance of gratitude that comes with this recognition. Thank you to the Television Academy for the delicious honor of being nominated in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category, alongside the most talented and hilarious actors of today. Thank you Emmy voters for this great compliment, and thank you to Quinta Brunson for the opportunity of a lifetime. It has been a joy and a blessing to portray Mrs. Barbara Howard on screen and honor the thousands of educators she represents across the country in doing so. Thank you again!”

    Anthony Carrigan, Barry, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Amy and Dan have created a series that will resonate with fans for years to come, and I’m honored to be a part of it.”

    Bowen Yang, Saturday Night Live, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

    “What an honor! SNL is the most wonderful convocation of talents and people and I share this with all the cast, writers and crew. I was on a plane watching “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” when I found out because I am a company man. Stream Peacock now.”

    Lily James, Pam & Tommy, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    “I feel so incredibly honoured and overwhelmed.

This labor of love was brought to you by a whole lot of hard working friends and even family (thank you mom) So, the biggest thanks to the many hands that made MAID.”

    Amanda Seyfried, The Dropout, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    “You never know if people are going to watch what you make so the entire experience of making a movie or show exists in its own creative and crazy bubble. The Dropout was the most intense and surprisingly fun time and for it to be appreciated in this way sweetens the whole experience for me. I love celebrating this show and the brilliant people involved. I’m super happy right now.”

    Andrew Garfield, Under the Banner of Heaven, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    “It is such an honor to have my work nominated alongside these incredible actors that I’m so inspired by. I’m so grateful to be a part of bringing Under the Banner of Heaven to the screen and to have been able to collaborate with this amazing crew, our producers, FX and most especially our insanely talented ensemble cast and our courageous, loving, heartful leader Dustin Lance Black. I share this honor with them. Dustin crafted a story so personal and vital for this moment in American history – a reminder of the danger of fundamentalism, extremism and of the fragility of precious individual freedoms in the face of tyranny. May this cautionary tale remind us of our responsibilities to each other: to live and let live with love and respect.”

    Michael Keaton, Dopesick, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

Chi-yoon Chung, Douglas Crise, Nick Offord, Ryan Collins, Jay Meagher, and my fellow actors Kaitlyn Dever, Mare Winningham, Will Poulter, Peter Saarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg and Hulu, who has been incredibly supportive of our show. As an Executive Producer and actor, it’s a privilege to work in this community and I am so grateful that we were able to shine a light on the innocent individuals and families affected by opioid addiction. I am incredibly proud of our work here and appreciative of the warm reception the show has received, not just from peers but real folks, too.”

    Himesh Patel, Station Eleven, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    “Making a show about the survivors of a pandemic, as a very real pandemic unfolded around us, was such a roll of the dice. But at its core our story celebrated the beauty of human connection – and I’m thrilled that it’s resonated with so many people. It was my privilege to play Jeevan and I’m honoured to be nominated alongside such iconic actors. Thank You to the TV Academy and to my Station Eleven family.”

    Sebastian Stan, Pam & Tommy, Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    Connie Britton, The White Lotus, Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

    “I am so fxxxing thrilled to have been a part of the incredible group of people who put together the amazing White Lotus! And, I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: Mike White, Mike White, Mike White. To be able to do a show that gets under the skin of the culture in such a creative and insightful way is an honor and a dream.”

    Jennifer Coolidge, The White Lotus, Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

A special thank you and congratulations to Adam, Jesse, Brian, and Jeremy.”

    Colman Domingo, Euphoria, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

    “I cried today. Because I know so many people wanted this nomination for me. I am not a jaded person but I do know not to “want” for awards. It can leave you heartbroken. But I wanted this nomination. I wanted this for Euphoria, a show that is trying to save lives. I wanted this for every person on that set who pours so much love and creativity into what we are making. I wanted this for Sam who writes so brilliantly for me and directs me with such care and brotherhood. I wanted this acknowledgment for the Ali’s in the world. The ordinary brothers who are trying to overcome many hurdles and do some good in the world. I wanted this for everyone who has reached out to me and said, thank you for your portrayal of Ali. He saved my life. I am proud to be an actor and I am so very proud to be in such exquisite company.”

    James Lance, Ted Lasso, Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series

    ”I’m on our first ever family holiday with our little boy, so today was already a doozy. But Hannah Waddingham just Facetimed me kinda cry/laughing with this extraordinary news. I told her I love her. I’m kinda cry/laughing now too because this is beyond my wildest dreams. I’m over the moon. What a day for my wonderful Ted Lasso family.’

    Nathan Lane, Only Murders in the Building, Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series

My great thanks to everyone involved especially the director Cherien Dabis and the writers of The Boy From 6B, Stephen Markley and Ben Phillipe, our great crew, the brilliant John Hoffman, and most importantly, Steve, Marty, and Selena who make for the happiest set in town. I was sad not to see James Caverly’s name among the nominees since he gave such a beautiful performance but I will think of this as a nomination for both of us since we worked so closely together. Thank you again and my thanks to the whole Murders family.”

    Christopher McDonald, Hacks, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

    Matt and Ross Duffer, Stranger Things, Outstanding Drama Series

    “Thank you to the Television Academy for this amazing honor, and for supporting so many of the show’s behind-the-scenes artists. They are real-life wizards, and their passion is visible (or audible!) in every frame. Making this season was a challenging, epic ride for everyone on team Stranger, and to receive this kind of recognition at the end of the journey is truly special.”

    Shawn Levy, Stranger Things, Outstanding Drama Series

    “We took some big swings in Season 4. Inspired as always by the voice and vision of our Brothers Duffer, the ST cast and crew aimed to pull off storytelling that was more ambitious than we’ve ever tried before. Along the way, we were confident that if we could pull this story off, audiences would be rewarded with our most emotional and satisfying season yet. To have this season embraced by hundreds of millions of viewers around the world has been incredible, and to have it now acknowledged with these nominations from the Television Academy is so gratifying and thrilling. Chrissy: this one’s for you!”

    Jonathan Lisco, Ashley Lyle, Bart Nickerson, Yellowjackets, Seven Nominations Including Outstanding Drama Series

    “To say that we are thrilled, humbled, and a little starstruck to be recognized by the Television Academy amongst these outstanding series and artists is an understatement. Our hearts are beating a little fast right now — but more than anything, we’re grateful to the incredible collaborators with whom we share these nominations. This is a team sport (see what we did there?), and we truly wouldn’t be here without our fiercely supportive partners at Showtime and eOne, our beloved fellow EPs Drew Comins and Karyn Kusama, our brilliant and courageous cast, our amazing crew — who braved the Canadian wilderness with passion, commitment, and inspiring artistry — and of course, our dedicated Citizen Detectives. Thank you for recognizing our weird cannibal show. You’ve absolutely made our year.”

    Hwang Dong-hyuk (Creator/Showrunner/Writer/Director), Squid Game, Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Director for a Drama Series, Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series

    “I feel so happy and honored that Squid Game became the first non-English language series to be nominated for the Emmy Awards. I hope that Squid Game’s Emmy nominations will open up even more opportunities for the whole world to enjoy and appreciate each other’s content beyond the barriers of culture and language.”

    Justin Halperin and Patrick Schumacker (Executive Producers), Abbott Elementary, Seven Nominations Including Outstanding Comedy Series

    “We are incredibly grateful and excited at these nominations. The entire cast, crew, and writing staff are some of the most talented people we’ve ever worked with. We are so thankful Quinta trusted us with helping her make this show and she deserves every accolade that comes her way. She is insanely good at everything she does. It’s frankly unnerving. We made Abbott because we wanted to make people laugh but also show the daily struggle teachers go through and the respect and admiration they deserve. We’re realizing now this reads like it was written by a PR robot but rest assured these were the original thoughts of two humans who are shockingly paid to write things.”

    John Hoffman, Only Murders in the Building, 17 Nominations Including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series

    “Everyone in this amazing Building of ours poured their hearts into making something that might connect and lift the spirits — even though there might be a murder or two in there. Now, to feel the love back from the Academy and to celebrate so many in our crazily talented team this morning is beyond an honor and it means the world to all of us, I know.”

    Stefani Robinson, What We Do in the Shadows, Seven Nominations Including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series

    “What awesome news to wake up to this morning — I am deeply honored and grateful to the Television Academy for this recognition. I am also extremely proud of the hard work that goes into “What We Do in the Shadows” and share these nominations with our incredible cast, crew, FX, and everyone involved with bringing this freaky show to life. “Bat!””

    Liz Meriwether, The Dropout, Six Nominations Including Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series

    “I am floored and honored this morning by the six Emmy nominations for The Dropout. I am not good at making statements– and I can’t lower my voice, because this is written. I’ll just say thank you– to the writers, directors, crew, executives– thank you to all the people who put their heart and soul into telling this story about the importance of science, about the importance of truth, about the importance of journalism and bureaucracy in the middle of a pandemic. And thank you so much to the people who watched and championed this show. There was so much incredible television made this year under very difficult circumstances, and I feel so lucky to be a part of this creative moment. Thank you to every crew member, actor, director, writer who put on a mask and went to work this year. And thank you for listening and watching.”

    “Thank you to the Emmy voters for all the recognition for PAM & TOMMY! We are beyond thrilled with our ten nominations. So much love and sweat went into this show–everyone worked at the top of their game, from the storytellers to the actors to all the incredible craftspeople behind the scenes. And we, of course, have to thank Hulu, who have been such spectacularly supportive partners from day one. We couldn’t be more gratified or grateful.”

    Cathy Yan, Succession, Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series

    “Thank you to the Academy. I had an absolute blast directing on my favorite show and am so honored to be nominated with this talented group. It’s a privilege to have worked with Jesse Armstrong, Mark Mylod and the incredible cast and crew of Succession. It was the highlight of my pandemic.”

    Cherien Dabis, Only Murders in the Building, Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series

    “I’m speechless! Which I guess is appropriate because I’ve been nominated for a silent episode! Seriously though, I’m beyond thrilled. This is particularly special because this episode is so unique, inventive and ambitious. I’m incredibly grateful to the writers and show-runner / co-creator John Hoffman and Hulu for boldly taking a risk on a dialogue-free episode of a half hour comedy and for inviting me on to do such meaningful work. I’m grateful to actor James Caverly who challenged me to think deeply about visually crafting the episode with a deaf audience in mind. I’m so excited to share this recognition with the absolutely brilliant cast and crew! Thanks so much to the Television Academy for this tremendous honor.”

    Norman Lear and Brent Miller, Live in Front of a Studio Audience: The Facts of Life and Diff’rent Strokes, Outstanding Variety Special (Live) and Outstanding Production Design For A Variety Special

    “Thank you, Television Academy, for blessing us with another nomination for LIVE IN FRONT OF A STUDIO AUDIENCE. In addition to our fellow producers, we really want to thank our incredible cast for jumping into the shoes of those iconic characters of THE FACTS OF LIFE and DIFF’RENT STROKES and re-introducing them to a new generation of television viewers, while simultaneously celebrating the former producers, writers, cast and crew of the original productions.”

    Ron Howard (Director), We Feed People, Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special and Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program

    “This journey on “We Feed People,” has been so eye-opening. We are beyond thrilled by this incredible recognition from our peers. This honor is an extraordinary acknowledgment of the tremendous work of José Andrés and his team at World Central Kitchen. This film, at its core, is a story about volunteerism and all the good that can happen when we come together as one community. Their mission is inspiring and gives hope for our humanity. It is a true privilege for me and our team at Imagine Documentaries to share this honor with the team on this film, our cinematographers Kris Kaczor, Sebastian Lindstrom, Alicia Sully and National Geographic.”

    José Andrés (Subject), We Feed People, Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special and Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program

    “I never imagined such a beautiful film would one day be made about World Central Kitchen, paying tribute to the countless men and women who have joined us to always be there in emergencies around the world with a hot plate of food. This incredible honor is for all of them…and of course for Ron, his team at Imagine Documentaries, and the people of National Geographic, who have done an amazing job capturing the heart of not just what we do, or where we go, but why we show up. Each of us can ask that simple question, “What can I do?” People everywhere can use their know-how in their community to join whatever organization responds to what they care about. Even in our darkest times, this is the light, showing others we care. Without empathy, nothing works. With it, imagine what is possible?”
