Where Can I Watch the 2023 Emmy Nominees?

by Logan Gion

Are the Emmys even obligatory anymore?

Once again, the short answer is no.

The long answer is that it is necessary to appreciate and champion excellence in art. Evaluating television for its cultural value—whether that be entertainment, art, or communication—is something in which one should invest. The television academy has also been historically more inclusive in its body, nomination pool, and winners than other award shows. They’ve not been hit with near the same scandals as the Oscars, Grammys, Tonys, or Golden Globes. Additionally, due to their percentage nomination system, categories can have many more than five nominees.

As I said during Oscar season: Yes, there are still flaws in the process, and, with enough wining and dining, certain nominees can sway blocs of voters, but I have begun to approach the results as one “expert opinion.” Watch the nominees yourself and see if you agree; it’s okay to completely disagree with the Academy’s choices; what’s important is to engage in that conversation.

Below, I’m offering a list of where to watch which nominees in the SCRIPTED categories (I don’t have the bandwidth to cover reality, talk, or non-fiction on this blog, but I do make an exception for sketch comedy).

Stranger Things was so good last season, how come it didn’t get many nominations?

The Emmys changed their voting rules this year in regards to “hanging episodes.” Hanging episodes occur when a small part of the season airs after the eligibility window for the year. Previously, episodes like Stranger Things‘ season-four finale would’ve been considered ineligible for individual merit since the first eight installments of that season already aired. Starting this year, hanging episodes are eligible for the FOLLOWING year. In Stranger Things‘ case, the Emmys are evaluating ONLY the season finale (which still scored six nominations) instead of the entire season of work.

How is this post laid out?

Because the Emmys have so many categories, I’ve organized them by streaming service and just listed the shows’ names. They’re ordered by which service got the most nominations, so you’ll see Netflix on this list long before Starz. In addition, the shows in each section are laid out in the order they first appeared in the master nominations list: the higher the show in each section, the more prestigious categories in which that show is nominated.

Finally, I’ve seen many of these shows, but not necessarily the nominated season of each. If I’ve seen part of a show, I’ll put a check mark by it. If I’ve seen the season specifically nominated, that check mark will be green. If I’ve written about the content, the name will be in blue and will have a link.

Blue Eye Samurai
From the writer of "Logan" and "Blade Runner 2049," "Blue Eye Samurai" follows a mixed-race swordsman in 1600s Japan who, ordered by the shogunate, must expel Europeans that've remained in the country illegally. Rotten Tomatoes puts it at 100%.
Netflix releases the 8-part, hour-long-episode event about Gesicht, a detective investigating a string of human and android murders. The culprit could be a robot, which would mark only the second time in history that such a thing has occurred. From the mastermind who made ‘Monster,” this grim mystery is a spinoff—believe it or not—of “Astro Boy”!
