73rd Emmy Awards

On Sunday night, Sept. 19, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences  handed out the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards in a ceremony hosted by The Neighborhood star Cedric the Entertainer from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

The ceremony, exec. produced by 2020 Emmy returnees Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart through Done+Dusted and Hudlin Entertainment and directed by Hamish Hamilton, aired live on CBS and was also available to stream on Paramount+.

All of the below-the-line Emmys were given out over the course of three ceremonies on two nights last weekend, and you can see those results here, here, and here. The Primetime Emmy show on Sept. 19 focused mostly on above-the-line categories — acting, directing and writing, as well as the Emmys given to overall shows.

Of course, Netflix‘s drama The Crown cleaned up with 7 more Emmys, having come in with the most overall nominations and having already won four Emmys last weekend during the Creative Arts ceremonies. Besides winning another Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, it also won Emmys for lead actors Olivia Colman and Josh O’Connor, supporting actors  Gillian Anderson and Tobias Menzies, and for its writing and direction.

Similarly, the Apple TV+ comedy, Ted Lasso, won a bunch of expected Emmys, starting with supporting Emmys for Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein, and then winning for Outstanding Comedy Series.

The HBO limited Mare of Easttown  managed to hold off Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit for a little while, as Julianne Nicholson and Evan Peters took the supporting Emmys for a limited series or special (also holding off numerous nominees in each category for Hamilton). The Queen’s Gambit then won an Emmy for Scott Frank‘s direction, but then it was back to Mare for Kate Winslet to win her 2nd Emmy in the same category. Ultimately, The Queen’s Gambit won the Emmy for limited series and took home 11 Emmys total, including nine in the below-the-line categories.

There were a few surprises, though, like Hacks winning for best Writing for Comedy over Ted Lasso, and then minutes later, Lucia Aniello won a second Emmy for her direction of Hacks as well. Less surprising was Jean Smart winning for Hacks, one of her two Emmy nominations. (The other was for Mare of Easttown.)

Another surprise was Michaela Coel winning the Emmy for writing for her limited series, I May Destroy You, another HBO victory over its own Mare and also The Queen’s Gambit.

HBO’s Last Week with Jon Oliver won two more Emmys, as well, while RuPaul‘s Drag Race took home the Emmy for Competition Program after winning a number of awards last weekend.

The night also included loving tributes to the late Michael K. WilliamsNorm Madonald, and even a musical tribute to Biz Markie kicking off the show. Debbie Allen was honored with the Television Academy’s Governor’s Award for her oustanding career.
