It’s an honor to be nominated for an Emmy, but these people don’t even get the consolation of saying that to themselves.
The 74th Primetime Emmy nominations were announced Tuesday, and the list of the series, actors and creators up for TV’s biggest honor had usual suspects like “Ted Lasso” and “Succession,” and some up-and-comers, including “Only Murders in the Building,
