The 73rd Emmy Awards Winners Full List

The 73rd Emmy Awards had a groundbreaking turnout in television history.

This year’s awards pitted TV’s best with the most progressive medium of this generation: streaming platforms.

NBC’s Saturday Night Live always holds a special place in everyone’s hearts for network television and providing the best variety sketches. However, it didn’t stand a chance against the shows on streaming sites.

Netflix’s The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit dominated the podium with 11 awards for each TV show. Disney+ also had a great night with The Mandalorian and WandaVision bringing in 10 awards. Apple TV+ led its platform with Ted Lasso to bring in 7 Emmy wins in multiple categories. Then, HBO/HBO Max’s Mare Of Easttown and Hacks brought in 6 highlighted wins.

This year brought the usual glitz and glamour of celebrities in suits and dresses on the red carpet. This year’s entertaining host could be none other than Cedric the Entertainer (The Neighborhood).
