Emmy Awards 2022 live updates: Award winners and highlights
The 74th annual ceremony airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on NBC and the streaming service Peacock.
The Emmy Awards — which, like everything else, had to adjust protocols for the past two years because of Covid concerns — looked a little more normal this year.
The red carpet, which was limited last year, was back in full swing. The ceremony once again was indoors and held in front of a full studio audience, who appeared mostly maskless, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Host Kenan Thompson kicked the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards off with dances to remixes of theme songs from famous TV shows like “Friends,” “Law & Order” and “Stranger Things.”
Follow along for updates on the show, which airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on NBC and the streaming service Peacock. (NBC, Peacock and NBC News are all owned by NBCUniversal.)
HBO’s “Succession,” an operatic satire of corporate power plays and family dysfunction, wins the Emmy for best drama series.
During the acceptance speech, show creator Jesse Armstrong took a shot at the British monarchy and the new king of England.
“A bit more voting involved in our winning than Prince Charles,” he joked.
“Succession” is a two-time winner in this category. The show also nabbed the best drama trophy in 2020.
Apple TV+’s “Ted Lasso,” a feel-good sitcom about a stubbornly optimistic soccer coach (Jason Sudeikis) and his quirky co-workers, wins the Emmy for best comedy series.
“Ted Lasso” is a two-time winner in this category. It also nabbed the best comedy series trophy in 2021.
Sudeikis teased there's more Ted Lasso on the way.
“We’ll see you for Season 3, at some point,” he said.
"The White Lotus" proves to be an Emmy favorite, winning the top award for outstanding limited or anthology series.
And there's going to be more "White Lotus" to watch. A second season is slated for October.
