The nominations for the 74th annual Primetime Emmy Awards have finally been revealed and there were a lot of surprises this time around. Once again, the battle was between HBO and Netflix as both production companies were going all out to receive the most number of nominations at this year’s star-studded ceremony. However, the battle between the two production companies took an unexpected turn when HBO went flying past Netflix in the list of nominations and scored a whopping 140 nods.

As soon as the nominees were announced, everyone started counting which production company came out on top and it was HBO that left everyone behind. The nominations revealed that HBO and HBO Max received more than 140 nominations at this year’s event, with ‘Succession’ leading the pack with 25 nods. The show has been nominated for all the big prizes, including the Outstanding Drama Series. On the other hand, the limited series ‘The White Lotus’ was third on the list of nominees and garnered 20 nods.

Meanwhile, Netflix was the only production company to cross the triple-digit mark along with HBO. The streaming services amassed 105 nominations and were seen having nominations in almost all the categories, including Outstanding Drama Series and Limited Series. ‘Squid Game’ received 14 noms while ‘Stranger Things’ garnered 13 and both shows are nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category.

This is the second year in a row that HBO has managed to edge past Netflix in terms of nominations. Last year, HBO received 130 nods while Netflix was right behind with 129. However, shows like ‘Succession’, ‘Hacks’, ‘The White Lotus’, ‘Barry’, and ‘Euphoria’ helped the network in having a strong outing.
