The 2023 Emmy nominees were announced this morning and David Chen and Myles McNutt from Episodic Medium have some thoughts! In this bonus podcast episode, we discuss:

  • Which nominees were we thrilled by?

  • Which nominees were snubbed?

  • Should we even use the word “snub” to describe what’s going on here?

  • Why recent rule changes haven’t been effective in expanding the number of shows nominated

  • Shocking developments in this year’s nominee list

  • Will this year’s nominations be a turning point for the awards?

Listen to hear us discuss all this and more! You can also watch our conversation below.
