While the end of Game of Thrones has impacted HBO in many ways, but at the Emmy 2020, Succession is filling in that void for the network.
It’s still unknown if Emmy this year will have all the grandeur, or the 2020 curse is going to hit it as well, but for HBO, Succession has already brought the party home. What was looking like a loss for HBO with the departure of Game of Thrones, brought in several winning possibilities for Succession. Though there’s still some time before we know who wins what, with over close to one-and-a-half dozen nominations, some have already won for us.
- Succession is the Game of Thrones for HBO in Emmy 2020.
- Ozark and Succession leads, followed by The Crown.
Created by Jesse Armstrong, Succession is an HBO satirical comedy-drama. From the very first season, which aired on June 3, 2018, Succession became a sensation among viewers.
Both seasons of the show received critical acclaim. The popularity of the show, starring Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Braun, Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and more, has led HBO to renew the show for a third season.

Succession is the Game of Thrones for HBO in Emmy 2020.
The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are probably going to be held virtually. We’ll be missing out on a lot, but that’s how everything has been this year. However, with the likes of Ozark for Netflix, and Succession for HBO, anyone can bring the Emmy party home.
Game of Thrones, in its entire run, has a load of 160 Emmy nominations, of which it won a record-breaking 59 Emmys. For its final season in 2019, it scored a never-before for any TV show in a single year, a whopping 32 Emmy nominations.
Thus, nothing matches it, or comes even close. But in the initial years, the show struggled to make a mark on the Emmys even after being better in initial seasons. It was only by season 5, in 67th Primetime Emmy Awards that the show actually unveiled its true game with a record-breaking 24 nominations and 12 wins.
Considering that, Succession has achieved 18 nominations in just two seasons, so that’s already a win for us. In 2019’s Emmy, Succession received five nominations for its first Season, and won two, for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, and Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.
Ozark and Succession lead, followed by The Crown
While Succession is on to bring a collection of Emmy awards in 2020 for HBO, Ozark is in the same boat for Netflix. The streaming giant this year, scored a 160 overall nominations. Netflix’s Ozark has 18 nominations too. The Crown follows with 13 nominations.
While Netflix is leading the race, Disney+ has The Mandalorian running for it with a killer 15 Emmy nominations. Though it still surprises us how AMC’s Better Call Saul, which represents the Breaking Bad phenomenon, hasn’t won a single Emmy, but with 7 nominations this year, it might do the trick.
Following the top contenders, further down in the list are Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale with 10 nominations; BBC’s Killing Eve with 8 nominations, and Netflix’s sci-fi fantasy Stranger Things with 8 Nominations.
Seems like the game of Emmy thrones is jut beginning. Who do you think will take the most Emmys home?
