Ozark just racked up a ton of Emmy nominations for the hit drama's final season. When the Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced on Tuesday, it was revealed that Ozark picked up six major nods, including Outstanding Drama Series. Notably, series star Jason Bateman picked up two separate nominations, one for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and another for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for his work helming the series finale, "A Hard Way to Go."
Bateman wasn't the only star of the show to grab nominations, as Laura Linney was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and Julia Garner was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Finally, Ozark scribe Chris Mundy received a nomination in the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series category, for writing the show's aforementioned final episode. Garner has won twice before in her category for the show — in 2019 and 2020 — and Bateman previously picked up an Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series Emmy for the Ozark Season 2 premiere, "Reparations." It is also important to note that Garner is nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category as well, for her role as real-life con artist Anna Delvey in the Netflix series Inventing Anna.
