Amazon MGM Studios Breaks Records with 68 Primetime Emmy Nominations

First-Time Nominees and Creative Excellence Celebrated in Diverse Emmy Nominations

Amazon MGM Studios has announced a record-breaking number of nominations for the Primetime Emmy Awards this year. With 68 nominations, it is the studio’s most successful year to date and also marks the first time that Amazon and MGM have jointly celebrated Emmy nominations.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a fan-favorite and critically acclaimed series on Prime Video, earned 14 nominations this year, bringing its cumulative total to 80. This accomplishment has made it the most Emmy-nominated streaming comedy to date.

In addition to this milestone, Jury Duty, the comedy series on Freevee led by James Marsden, has earned a total of four nominations. This is a significant achievement as it is the first time a series on a free, ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) platform has been nominated in a major category.

The distribution of nominations across platforms is also noteworthy. Amazon’s Prime Video took 41 nominations, nine of which went to Daisy Jones & The Six and six to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. MGM received 23 nominations, with 12 going to Wednesday and four to The Voice. Lastly, Freevee’s share amounted to four nominations for Jury Duty.

Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon MGM Studios, expressed her pride in achieving the highest total number of Emmy nominations for the studio. She noted the studio’s three nominations for the Outstanding Comedy Series category, which she attributed to the creative excellence of their teams and partners. The three nominated series are The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Wednesday, and Jury Duty.

Among the celebrated nominations, there is also a considerable number of first-time nominees. These include Tim Burton for Wednesday, Dominique Fishback for Swarm, Riley Keough and Camila Morrone for Daisy Jones & The Six, James Marsden for Jury Duty, and Jenna Ortega for Wednesday.

Furthermore, subscribers to Prime Video Channels have the option to stream several Emmy-nominated series. This includes shows like House of the Dragon, The Last of Us, Succession, The White Lotus, and Barry on Max, and Yellowjackets, The Amazing Race, and Survivor on Paramount+.
