Apple is touting a record 54 Emmy Award nominations this year across 13 titles, catapulting the service to the third most Emmy-nominated network in just over three years since its global launch.

Apple Originals land major category nominations, including Outstanding Comedy series for this year's most Emmy-nominated comedy Ted Lasso; Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special for STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie, which also leads as this year's most Emmy-nominated documentary; Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series or Special for late night breakout The Problem With Jon Stewart; and Outstanding Short Form Comedy, Drama or Variety Series for Carpool Karaoke: The Series. Nominations for the 75th Emmy Awards were announced today by the Television Academy, and the winners are set to be unveiled at a ceremony on September 18, 2023.

"These brilliantly original stories have made us laugh, given us a greater sense of empathy, and a fresh understanding of our world through many different genres of storytelling," said Zack Van Amburg, Apple's head of Worldwide Video. "We are in awe of the unique talents of the casts and crews that have brought these fantastic programs to audiences across the globe, and we thank the Television Academy for these honors."


"We are incredibly grateful to the Television Academy for recognizing this wide array of Apple Original programming," said Jamie Erlicht, Apple's head of Worldwide Video. "It has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with these gifted artists, and we couldn't be happier to see them acknowledged for their exceptional work today. We send our warmest congratulations to all of the nominees."
