The 73rd Emmy Awards were at the L.A.’s Microsoft Theater with a limited audience. (Last year, the event largely took place on Zoom) Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the veteran comedian and star of CBS’s The Neighborhood, there is even a limited red carpet with a dozen media outlets.
Netflix’s British royal drama The Crown and the Disney+ ‘s Star Wars series The Mandalorian have the most nominations — 24 each. After it was controversially snubbed by the Golden Globes, I May Destroy You received six nominations.
While The Crown reigned supreme with seven honors, including drama series, Ted Lasso took home four awards while HBO Max’s Hacks and HBO’s Mare of Easttown (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) have claimed three wins each and Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit won two honors including a win for limited series.
