"Succession" scored 27 Emmy nominations on Wednesday, more than any other TV series. 

Brian Cox is nominated for best actor in a drama series for his portrayal of Logan Roy in the HBO drama centered around his media company Waystar Royco. Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong are also nominated in the same category as their TV father. 

Sarah Snook is nominated in best actress category. She plays Shiv Roy, the only daughter of Logan. 

"Succession" will likely be the favorite to win the best drama series category, but it will have some competition from fan favorites including "Better Call Saul" and "The White Lotus."
