The popular HBO show Succession is finishing with one last victory lap during awards season. The family business drama led the field with nine Golden Globe nominations on Monday,
setting a new record for a TV show. It had already led the field with 27 nominations for the 2023 Primetime Awards.
Succession was nominated for every award it could have won, including Best Drama Series.
There were three nods each for Best Actor (Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, and Kieran Culkin) and Actor in a Supporting Role on TV (Matthew Macfadyen, Alexander Skarsgård, and Alan Ruck). This show had the most wins overall.
Sarah Snook was nominated for Female Actor in a Drama Series, and J. Smith-Cameron was nominated for Supporting.
These eight people are also up for Emmys. Nicholas Braun is the only key cast member from Succession who isn't up for a Golden Globe today.
Succession had more Golden Globe bids for its last season than L.A. Law did in 1990, with eight. In 1984, The Thorn Birds also got eight votes for long-form writing.
Other TV shows that have been nominated for the most Golden Globes are the soap ER (seven in 1998) and the limited series Angels in America (seven in 2004).
