We impress it sounds loopy, however the 2024 Emmys, airing on FOX on January 15, are the first opportunity the FX sequence The Possess had needed to decide on any Emmy Awards. A shock success when it premiered in June of 2022, the sequence created by Christopher Storer earned Golden Globe, Critics Preference, and SAG Awards for big name Jeremy Allen White in early 2023. However as a result of the quirks of Emmy eligibility, it wasn’t even nominated for TVs top probably honor except July of 2023, after it 2nd season had premiered. And when the Emmys had been delayed to January for the length of the SAG-AFTRA strike, it meant that nearly a year and a half would transpire between The Possess’s premiere and its Emmy moment.
However good day, inquire: we made it! And with The Possess having won four Emmys already — for casting, sound mixing and bettering, and boom bettering — it’s heading into Monday’s ceremony with unbelievable momentum at the abet of it. Throughout the Golden Globes final Sunday, White won his 2nd award in a row, whereas co-broad name Ayo Edebiri won a matching statuette for lower than actress in a comedy. It’s extremely probably White will repeat at the Emmys — he’s already won each and each tons of critical award for his efficiency — however Edebiri will probably be competing in only supporting actress in a comedy sequence, since her season one role used to be quite of smaller than it used to be in season two. She’s nominated this year in opposition to final year’s winner, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and the outdated year’s winner, Hannah Waddingham, however we demand she’ll form no longer relish any bother joining White in the winners room.
And unlike at the Golden Globes — where supporting actors all over all of tv are in the the same class, however Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen remained unstoppable — there have to be a third performing winner from The Possess at the 2024 Emmys, too. Ebon Moss-Bachrach is nominated in opposition to his maintain formidable competitors, including the Barry duo of Henry Winkler and Anthony Carrigan and the Ted Lasso duo of Phil Dunster and reigning champ Brett Goldstein. However Cousin Richie is an unforgettable fragment of the Possess expertise, and voters will probably be forgiven for pondering of Moss-Bachrach’s standout season two episode “Forks” even in the occasion that they’re technically voting for season one.
With all those performing wins, a only comedy sequence decide must arrive close at the abet of, and we’re moreover feeling bullish on the ticket’s possibilities in the writing and directing categories, both of which could per chance maybe moreover very smartly be probably to favor sequence creator Storer. Sure, that makes for a virtual sweep in the comedy categories, save in only actress, where The Possess is no longer nominated. However given how many of us relish spent the final year pronouncing “Sure, Chef!” and finding out to form their very maintain giardiniera, it can maybe be a smartly-earned sequence of victories.
