The Television Academy spread the wealth through the 74th annual Emmy Awards Monday Night, doling out 24 awards to greater than a dozen different shows.
HBO’s “The White Lotus” snared probably the most awards through the Primetime ceremony with five, including Outstanding Limited Series. It was closely followed by AppleTV+’s “Ted Lasso,” which earned 4 trophies, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
Emmy voters also rewarded titles similar to Netflix’s “Squid Game” and ABC’s “Abbott Elementary.”
HBO tallied probably the most wins, earning 11 Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series for “Succession.” Its nearest competitors were Disney and Apple, each with 4 wins. Netflix took home three.
“Saturday Night Live” solid member Kenan Thompson hosted the ceremony on NBC and streaming service Peacock from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
While the ceremony typically airs on Sunday, NBC also has broadcast rights to National Football League games on Sunday nights, so it has opted to showcase the award winners on Monday.
“The White Lotus,” powered by writer-director Mike White, won several awards. Other winners included Michael Keaton for “Dopesick,” Jean Smart for “Hacks,” Jennifer Coolidge for “The White Lotus” and Julia Garner for “Ozark.”
Sheryl Lee Ralph (“Abbott Elementary”) won for best supporting actress in a comedy series, becoming only the second Black woman within the history of the Emmys to win on this category. Jackee Harry took home the prize for “227″ in 1987. “Squid Game” helmer Hwang Dong-hyuk was the primary South Korean to win for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. At 26, Zendaya, of “Euphoria,” is the youngest person to win the award for Outstanding Leading Actress prize twice.
Amanda Seyfried won for her portrayal of disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in “The Dropout.”
“Succession” earned 25 nominations, probably the most of any series, while “Ted Lasso” and HBO’s “The White Lotus” each garnered 20 nominations. Following close behind were HBO Max’s “Hacks” and Hulu’s “Only Murders within the Constructing” — each with 17 nominations — and HBO’s “Euphoria,” which nabbed 16.
The Television Academy didn’t break out awards by network this yr. Last yr, there was some mild controversy about how nominations were tallied, as many networks even have streaming services. While it seemed suitable to lump network shows and streaming shows from the identical company together, some within the industry felt they ought to be considered separate distributors.
