Emmy nominations were announced on Tuesday, and “Succession” picked up the most nods with 25, while stars Zendaya (“Euphoria”) and Quinta Brunson (“Abbott Elementary”) made history. While reacting to the noms, “The Take” hosts discuss the snubs of major celebrities like Selena Gomez for “Only Murders in the Building.” Also, we address the issue of multiple actors from the same series being recognized, such as “Ted Lasso” and “The White Lotus.” Is this a problem, and can it be fixed?

Britney Spears had a significant victory in court this week. A judge ruled that her father, Jamie Spears, must sit for a deposition. So what’s next for her and her legal team in this post-conservatorship case?

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis faced backlash following her comments regarding her former “Knives Out” co-star Ana de Armas, who was on the cover of Elle Magazine. In an interview for the Elle cover story, Curtis said she thought de Armas was “unsophisticated” when she first met the Cuban actress.

Finally, we’re celebrating legendary actor Harrison Ford, who turned 80 on Wednesday. With iconic roles in “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” along with an Oscar-nominated turn in “Witness,” it’s hard to choose our favorite performance.
