Emmys 2022: Full list of award winners | Shows, movies, actors and actresses
Emmy winners are rejoicing! Here is all you need to know about the event and those who took home the night’s biggest prizes.
This year’s Emmys was full of surprises as television stars returned to Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater after two years of the event being held at other venues throughout the city during the pandemic.
The big six awards at the Emmys are
Outstanding Comedy Series
Eight television series were nominated for this category, with Apple TV’s ‘Ted Lasso’ taking home the award and two other significant prizes. The lead in the series, Jason Sudeikis, also won the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, beating out other comedy superstars including Steve Martin, Martin Short, and his former SNL cast member Bill Hader. Additionally, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series went to Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent in the critically acclaimed program.
All in all, ‘Ted Lasso’ was nominated for ten awards, two less than ‘Succession’ and one less than ‘The White Lotus.’
Outstanding Drama Series
Succession was another clear winner at Monday night’s event, walking away with three awards:
Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series
‘The White Lotus’, a comedy-drama anthology, was also a big winner at yesterday’s event taking home eleven awards. The series follows a fictional hotel chain that, while seeming beautiful and idyllic, strange events begin to taint the guests’ experience. HBO had initially approved the show as a limited series but has confirmed that there will be another season which is scheduled for release in October of this year.
Outstanding Competition Program
Lizzo’s ‘Watch Out for the Big Grrrls’ took home the prize for Outstanding Competition Program.
Outstanding Variety Talk Series
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver took home the prize, which the series has done since 2016.
The HBO Original was nominated along with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Before Last Week Tonight began its run, it faced steep competition from ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.’ Stewart’s new show, The Problem with Jon Stewart, was not nominated.
Outstanding Variety Sketch Series
There were only two programs nominated in this category: ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’, with the former taking home the grand prize. SNL’s most recent win brings their total Primetime Emmy Awards to eighty-three.
