Los Angeles, California – The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards took place on Monday following a four-month delay due to the Hollywood writer and actor strikes. The ceremony honored the best talent in television, with stars walking the ‘silver carpet’ in Los Angeles for a shimmering ceremony.
Originally scheduled for September, the event was postponed and nominations were announced in July. This year’s awards honored shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, giving a sense of déjà vu to the proceedings.
The show with the most nominations was ‘Succession’, which took home six awards. Other heavily nominated shows, such as ‘The Last of Us’ and ‘The White Lotus’, failed to compete in terms of wins on the night. Netflix’s limited series ‘Beef’ and Hulu’s comedy ‘The Bear’ also saw a raft of big wins at the ceremony.
One memorable moment from the event was Ebon Moss-Bachrach planting a huge kiss on Matty Matheson’s lips after ‘The Bear’ won Best Comedy Series. The pair caused shocked reactions from their cast mates and cheers from the audience with their on-stage kiss.
Despite the celebration, some shows, like ‘The Morning Show’, were ineligible for nominations this time around due to the timeline for eligibility. As such, the awards honored shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, meaning that newer seasons of some shows were not eligible until the next time around.
The red carpet fashion also made headlines, with stars like Katherine Heigl, Janelle James, and Camila Morrone showing off stunning looks. The ceremony also saw Old Hollywood glamour on display, with many stars arriving in their best satin skirts, feathered dresses, and silver or gold statement necklaces.
The night was a testament to the talent and creativity of the television industry, showcasing the best and brightest in the field.
