By the end of the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards, fans of Better Call Saul were left feeling disappointed and seeing their favorite show as unappreciated after the Breaking Bad prequel series walked away empty-handed yet again.

The season finale of Better Call Saul aired on 15th August, concluding the shows six year run in what was regarded by many as its best season yet. Despite only half of the season being eligible for nominations,, 2022 seemed like the year the deadlock was going to be broken. Better Call Saul strode into the Emmy’s with nominations in 4 major categories; Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series for Bob Odenkirk, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Rhea Seehorn and Best Writing for a Drama Series for Thomas Schnauz.

Alas, that wasn’t going to be the case as Better Call Saul ended the night with zero statues. The Emmy for Best Drama series went to HBO’s Succession, Lee Jung-Jae from Netflix drama series Squid Game won the Best Actor in a Drama Series category, Julia Garner of Ozark won Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series while Jess Armstrong won the Emmy for Best Writing for a Drama Series for his work on Succession. See full winners list here.

Striking out yet again brought Better Call Saul’s total nomination tally to 46 nominations with zero wins.

Despite seeing the winners of these categories as worthy, fans of the Breaking Bad prequel feel the series has been treated unfairly with some going as far saying “the Emmys are dead to me now.”

Better Call Saul will have one last shot at sealing at least one victory at next the Emmys as the final half of the season is technically still eligible for nominations having aired from July 11 to August 15 (beyond the eligibility period for 2022.)
