The Emmys differs from other awards shows by considering a longer timeline for nominations. This can be confusing as some shows may not be eligible for consideration. For the 2023 Emmys, shows that aired between June 1, 2022, and May 31, 2023, were eligible, with specific episode requirements. Additionally, the removal of the "hanging episode" rule impacts nominations, with certain shows being recognized for previous seasons despite new episodes being released. This change affects popular shows like The Bear, Only Murders in the Building, Reservation Dogs, and What We Do in the Shadows. Summer TV premieres, such as Black Mirror, Outlander, Silo, I'm a Virgo, and The Idol, may have to wait until the following year for consideration. Euphoria, another HBO series created by Sam Levinson, did not air a new season within the eligibility window, meaning Zendaya will not have the opportunity to repeat as best drama actress.
