Brian Cox, Hannah Waddingham, Taron Egerton and Daniel Radcliffe lead the Brits landing nods at the 2023 Emmy Awards – but Emily Blunt is SNUBBED despite acclaimed role in The English
- The 2023 Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday September 18 on FOX
Brian Cox, Daniel Radcliffe and Taron Egerton were the biggest British names who landed nominations at the 2023 Emmy Awards, after the full shortlist was announced on Wednesday.
After another illustrious year in TV, many UK favourites were recognised for their work, including Brian’s critically-acclaimed role as Logan Roy in the final series of Succession, for Leading Actor In A Drama Series.
Matthew Macfadyen has landed a nod for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series following his appearance in the lauded HBO show’s Swan Song.
Also landing a nod was Daniel, for his zany performance as Weird Al in the satirical biopic of the same name.
It’s hoped his recognition will end a lengthy spell of TV Movies and their actors being shut out, as its categories have been dominated by Miniseries in recent years.

In a surprise nomination, Sharon Horgan earned a nod for Leading Actress In A Drama Series for Apple TV+’s Bad Sisters.
Juno Temple and Hannah Waddingham both earned nominations for Supporting Actress In A Drama Series for their respective roles in Ted Lasso.
But several big names were shut out of this year’s nominations, including Emily Blunt for The English, Imelda Stanton and Lesley Manville for their performances in The Crown.
Brian Cox, who plays series patriarch Logan Roy, will be competing against his costars Jeremy Strong, who plays his ambitious son Kendall Roy, and Kieran Culkin, who plays his more troubled younger son Roman.
The series, which was created by Jesse Armstrong, traces the fortunes of the Roy family, which owns a media and entertainment conglomerate led by the tempestuous Logan Roy.
He struggles to main control of his empire in the darkly comic drama while his adult children vie to succeed him.
The fourth and final season of Succession will face stiff competition in the Outstanding Drama Series category against other popular HBO series, The White Lotus, The Last Of Us and the Game Of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon.
The Bob Odenkirk–starring Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul also scored a nomination in the category for its acclaimed final season.

The show has been nominated 46 times at previous ceremonies, but has shockingly never once won an Emmy in any category despite the show’s rabid fan base and nearly universal critical approval.
It comes just hours after it was reported that the Emmys are most likely to be postponed as the Television Academy and the show’s broadcast Fox fear it will be interrupted by potential strikes.
But the two organizations are split as to when the iconic television awards should be rescheduled to, according to insiders who spoke to Variety.
The Television Academy is reportedly hoping to pencil in a date later in the autumn, but Fox is circling around a new spot early in 2024.
Both the Academy and Fox fear that the show could be devastated if the SAG-AFTRA union, which represents actors, goes on strike, and it is also possible that the ongoing WGA strike could still be dragging on by the original date of September 18.
The shakeup comes shortly after SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher caught plenty of negative publicity for taking a break from the already-extended negotiations with film studios to attend a Dolce & Gabbana show in Italy, where she was pictured rubbing elbows with Kim Kardashian and other stars.
According to Variety, the Television Academy has proposed pushing the Emmys back to sometime in November, about two months after the show would have normally aired, in hopes that issues around the unions have been resolved by then.
However, the show’s broadcaster Fox is pushing for a more aggressive strategy. It suggests delaying the ceremony until January of 2024.
Both the Academy and Fox have agreed that canceling the show is out of the picture, as its 75th anniversary is too important a date to skip.
If the strikes are settled on an ideal timetable, then the Emmys could also be the first major award show to air after new contracts are signed for actors and writers.
Fox has the bigger leverage and final say on when the show will happen, as forgoing the broadcast isn’t an option.
The network isn’t in favor of a November date as that month is already stuffed with other high-profile events and lucrative NFL games. However, there is precedent for a November reshuffle, which previously happened in 2001.
That year, the ceremony was delayed twice, first by the September 11 terrorist attacks, and then again by early military action in Afghanistan.
The publication notes that January 21 is the most likely date for the rescheduled show, as January 7 is already reserved for the Golden Globes, while the Critics’ Choice Awards are being held on January 14.
Those dates assume the show stays on a Sunday. It could also be moved to a different day of the week, though that might have an impact on ratings.

Hit: The Bob Odenkirk–starring Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul also scored a nomination in the category for its acclaimed final season
A decision on the new date is expected to be made by the end of July, as it should be clear by then if SAG-AFTRA members are going on strike. Currently, all indications are that the union plans to, and little progress has reportedly been made in recent negotiation sessions.
Moving the show could also impact Jesse Collins Entertainment, which is producing the show, as a January ceremony would make it difficult for the company to also work on other awards shows in the winter.
The shuffling would also upset the Creative Arts Emmy Awards and the Daytime Emmys.
The report also notes that Academy members have been having talks about potentially pushing back the deadline for the second round of voting on award winners if the show is postponed, but the current consensus seems to be to keep the current deadline in place.
