The Walt Disney Company proudly announced an impressive 147 nominations for the 74th Primetime Emmy® Awards across its content brands and studios. ABC received 23 Emmy nominations. "Abbott Elementary" led the way with seven nominations, including three nods to Quinta Brunson for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers—and a slightly tone-deaf principal—are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don't love the school district's less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.
