It's that time of year again. After awards shows made their triumphant returns to being in-person and everyone did their best to soak in all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood again, it's time to do it all over again. Every year, the Emmy Awards mark the beginning of awards season and now, we've all found out which TV shows and movies are up for an award this year at the 2022 ceremony.

Before the 74th Emmy Awards take place on September 12, we'll all get to guess which one of the nominees announced today will go home with the trophy. Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have been picking their favorites all summer long, which include Ted Lasso, Succession, and Dopesick, but both publications reminded audiences that there are some dark horses in the running, too, including Pen15, The Other Two, As We See It, Winning Time, and Pam & Tommy. Plus, when viewers consider that there's more than just prestige TV involved, everyone can shed a tear over Mandy Moore in the final season of This Is Us and laugh with the entire cast of Abbott Elementary.

Here are this year's nominations. The big show arrives on Monday, September 12, on NBC.
