They have stiff competition against Bill Hader, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Sudeikis, and Donald Glover.
Meanwhile, the actresses nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series include Issa Rae, Jean Smart, Quinta Brinson, Kaley Cuoco, Elle Fanning, and Rachel Brosnahan. Brinson is nominated for the Emmy Awards 2022 for her role in Abbott Elementary. The show has seven nominations across the board.

Actors Lee Jung-Jae, Jason Bateman, Brian Cox, Bob Odenkirk, Jeremy Strong, and Adam Scott got nominations for Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Cox and Strong will be competing against each other for their roles in Succession. Like Abbott Elementary, this show also did well, scoring fourteen nominations.
The Award Snubs
Naturally, there have been a number of snubs at the Emmy Awards 2022. Although Stranger Things managed to get thirteen nominations, none of these was for the actors in the show.
Sadly, Selena Gomez, who is the female lead of Only Murders in the Building, has once again been snubbed by the Emmy Awards 2022. Unfortunately, has not received any nominations, although the ATAS gave the show 18 nominations this year. Additionally, the final season of Insecure only managed to score a single nomination with Issa Rae.
Likewise, the hit TV show This Is Us, which recently aired its last season, did not score any nominations. Similarly, Rothaniel, Black-Ish, Atlanta, Maid and Yellowstone failed at Emmy Awards 2022
Equally, many critics praised Sarah Goldberg for her role in Barry, but it seems the ATAS disagreed. Bizadidn’t she didn’t get any nominations for it!
