The 74th annual Emmy Awards are in the books following a tight three-hour telecast on NBC that saw several repeat winners, along with quite a few surprising upsets. During Monday’s Kenan Thompson-hosted ceremony, Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso” won best comedy series for the second year in a row, HBO Max’s “The White Lotus” took top limited series and HBO’s “Succession” grabbed the highest honor of the night with outstanding drama series.Earlier in the show, Netflix’s “Squid Game” star Lee Jung-jae became the first Asian actor to ever win lead actor in a drama, and the fourth Asian person ever to win an acting Emmy, while HBO’s “Euphoria” star Zendaya became the first Black woman to win lead actress in a drama, and the youngest two-time winner of any Emmy in history.

Emmy Night


“Hacks” star Jean Smart won outstanding actress in a comedy for the HBO Max show, and “Ted Lasso’s” Jason Sudeikis once again took top honor for actor in a comedy. Amanda Seyfried nabbed lead actress in a limited series for her portrayal of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu’s “The Dropout,” and fan-favorite “The White Lotus” actress Jennifer Coolidge won for supporting actress in a limited series. On the actor side, the honors were given to Michael Keaton for Hulu’s “Dopesick” and Murray Bartlett for his supporting role in HBO’s “The White Lotus.”



Matthew Macfadyen was honored for his supporting role in “Succession,” for which he was previously nominated in 2020, but did not land the win. Then Julia Garner took the award in the corresponding actress role for the final season of Netflix’s “Ozark,” on which she played Ruth Langmore, marking her third Emmy win for the part. “Abbott Elementary” star Sheryl Lee Ralph made history as the second Black winner for supporting actress in a comedy, following Jackée Harry’s win for “227” in 1987. On the actor side, “Ted Lasso’s” Brett Goldstein won for the second year in a row, the award’s first back-to-back winner since Jeremy Piven for “Entourage” in 2007. Strides in diversity were made in non-acting categories when “Squid Game’s” Hwang Dong-hyuk became the first Asian director to win the drama series category, and the first-ever director to win for a non-English-language series, and “Abbott Elementary” creator and star Quinta Brunson won for comedy series writing

Emmys 2022: The Host


The honor goes to none other than NBC veteran and six-time Emmy nominee Kenan Thompson. Prior to the news, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Chris Rock were both invited to host. However, they declined, as reported by Deadline. There was speculation that the Emmys would be hostless this year, but the Television Academy quickly shut the rumors down.

While the Emmys did have some disappointments, there were also surprises and praise from the Television Academy. Netflix’s Squid Game, which debuted last year and has become the streaming platform's most watched television series to date, received fourteen nominations. These nominations include Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and two for Best Supporting Actor, in addition to Best Drama. This is the first time a non-English series has been nominated in that category.   Another debut that received Emmy recognition with 20 nominations is HBO’s anthology series The White Lotus which premiered last summer with high ratings and critical acclaim. The nominations include Best Limited or Anthology Series, five Best Supporting Actress nominations, and three Best Supporting Actor nominations in a limited or anthology series.   Additionally, the Emmys bestowed the 2022 Governors Award to the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
