The Crown, The Gilded Age, The Last of Us and The Morning Show were also nominated in the category.

Alan Ruck, who played Connor Roy, led the group’s acceptance speech. “One last hurrah, I think,” Ruck, 67, said.

“Right now, you’re looking at some of the luckiest people on the planet and some of the most grateful. Because not only did we get to work on one of the most amazing television shows, maybe ever, we made friends for life.”

Since awards season kicked off in January, Succession has won a vast array of trophies. The HBO show earned Best Television Series – Drama at the 2024 Golden Globes and Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series at the 2023 Emmy Awards last month. As for the cast, Culkin, Snook and Macfadyen took home awards in their respective acting categories at both events.

Succession wrapped up its four-season run in May 2023. “I’ve never thought this could go on forever,” series creator Jesse Armstrong explained to The New Yorker in February 2023. “The end has always been kind of present in my mind.”

Armstrong noted that he wanted to conclude the show while it was still in its prime. “We could go on for ages and turn the show into something rather different, and be a more rangy, freewheeling kind of fun show, where there would be good weeks and bad weeks,” he said. “Or we could do something a bit more muscular and complete, and go out sort of strong. And that was definitely always my preference.”
