Emmys 2022: Who are 50 celebrity producers just receiving nominations?


When the Emmy Awards 2022 nominations were announced on July 12, producers were not included among the nominees in many categories. That is standard procedure by the Television Academy as they vet the possible producers. As of last night, those names have been added to the Emmys.com website (click on a show logo to see all producers, not just the famous ones).

Who are the 50+ celebrity producers who just received extra nominations? Many were expected, such as Jason Bateman (“Ozarks”), Fifth Brunson (“Abbott Elementary”), bill hader (“Barry”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”) and Jason Sudeikis (“Ted Lasso”).

Check out our list below, and you’ll also see some pleasant surprises. Although snubbed for acting categories, Selena Gomez (“Only Murders in the Building,” joining her nominated co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short), Ben Foster (“The Survivor”) and Lev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan: The Movie”) are now 2022 Emmy nominees.
