BURBANK, Calif. (July 12, 2022) — Programs produced by the Warner Bros. Television Group received 44 nominations for the 74th Primetime Emmy® Awards today. This includes Outstanding Comedy Series nominations for Abbott Elementary and Ted Lasso, both produced by Warner Bros. Television. Ted Lasso led all comedy series with 20 nominations for its second season. Abbott Elementary led all network comedies with seven nominations, and Abbott creator/star Quinta Brunson — nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Lead Actress, and Writing — made history by becoming the first Black woman to receive three Emmy nominations for the same comedy series in a single year. Warner Bros. Unscripted Television’s The Voice was nominated for Outstanding Competition Program, and Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is a nominee for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded). The announcement was made this morning by the Television Academy.

Warner Bros. Television Group Chairman Channing Dungey said: “While it is true that every day is a blessing, let’s face it, some days are better than others! This is one of those days for all the incredibly talented writers, producers, casts, and crew members responsible for Warner Bros. Television Group’s nominated programs. We are so thrilled that Emmy voters have honored their outstanding work with a total of 44 nominations. Everyone at the Studio is so proud to have the opportunity to tell inclusive and innovative stories, and we are honored to work with the artists and network partners that helped to make these shows possible. And I’d also like to take a moment to salute the incomparable Quinta Brunson. With Abbott Elementary, she has created a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to public school teachers. Quinta had a singular vision for this show: to tell authentic stories of everyday heroes for a network television audience. And today she made history as the first Black woman to receive three Emmy nominations for a comedy series in a single year! We couldn’t be more excited for her accomplishments and for the entire Abbott team.”
