“Schitt’s Creek” broke a record with seven Primetime awards and nine Emmys in total in the comedy categories, and “Succession” took home five awards, including best drama series. Here are other notable moments from the night. Catherine O’Hara won her first acting Emmy for her role as Moira Rose on “Schitt’s Creek.” Tyler Perry accepted the Governors Award, which recognizes “extraordinary” or “cumulative” accomplishment, and gave a heartfelt speech that tied a story about his grandmother to the experiences of Black Americans. Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest winner for best lead actress in a drama for her role in “Euphoria.” Several winners implored viewers to vote. Others made statements about racial justice during speeches and through their wardrobe. Jimmy Kimmel hosted from a nearly empty Staples Center while nominees tuned in from around the world.

 Oscars

Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.  SEE VIDEO WALL
