The Emmy nominations brought a tonne of good news for the Brits currently adorning our TV screens and streaming platforms.

Leading the way with 25 nominations with HBO’s massive hit show, ‘Succession’, which will be vying with other Netflix big hitters ‘Ozark’, ‘Squid Game’ and ‘Stranger Things’ – among others – at US telly’s big awards night on September 13.

As well as a reminder of quite how much telly we’ve all watched over the past 12 months, the nominee list is testimony to the quality of those small-screen offerings – and the acting talent they’re attracting. Colin Firth is nominated as Lead Actor for HBO’s true-life crime drama ‘The Staircase’, while his co-star Toni Collette is up for Lead Actress.

Firth will be facing off against Andrew Garfield, who is nominated for another crime miniseries, FX’s ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’.

And while it feels like we all discovered it about seven years ago, ‘Killing Eve’ is still making waves with Emmy voters and has earned Liverpool’s own Jodie Comer her third nomination for her enigmatic assassin Villanelle (she won in 2019).

It’ll be a tense night in the Richmond FC dressing room, with three ‘Ted Lasso’-ers  – Brett Goldstein, Toheeb Jimoh and Nick Mohammed – all up for the Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award.

It’s the same deal for their female co-stars, with Sarah Niles, Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham all up for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
