Los Angeles, CA — The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards finally took place on Monday night after being delayed for four months due to Hollywood writers and actors strikes. The delay pushed the awards ceremony from its original slot in September to January.
The delay led to some interesting outcomes, as nominations were given to shows that had been released months prior to the actual ceremony. For example, Hulu’s drama series “The Bear” received 13 nominations for its first season, which had already been out for nearly seven months.
In the Drama Series category, “Succession” emerged as the winner, beating out other formidable contenders like “The Crown” and “House of the Dragon.” The awards for Actor and Actress in a Drama Series went to Kieran Culkin for “Succession” and Sarah Snook for the same show, respectively. “The White Lotus” and “Ted Lasso” were also big winners in the Supporting Actor and Actress categories for a Drama Series.
In the Comedy Series category, “The Bear” took home the top prize, while Jeremy Allen White won the Actor in a Comedy Series award for his role in the show. Quinta Brunson won the Actress in a Comedy Series award for “Abbott Elementary” and Ebon Moss-Bachrach won the Supporting Actor award for “The Bear.” Ayo Edebiri was awarded the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for “The Bear.”
Other categories included Limited Series, Reality Competition Program, Talk Series, Writing for a comedy series, Outstanding Scripted Variety Series, Writing for a Variety Series, Directing for a Comedy Series, and more. Each category had its share of winners, making the event a memorable one for both the recipients and the audience.
