The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by actor and comedian Anthony Anderson, returned last night after being postponed four months due to last year's Hollywood writers and actors strikes.
HBO's "Succession" swept up six awards, including best drama (for the third time) and best actor and actress in a drama (Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook). FX's "The Bear" also nabbed six awards, including best comedy, best actor in a comedy (Jeremy Allen White), and best supporting actor and supporting actress in a comedy (Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Ayo Edebiri). Netflix's "Beef" picked up five awards, including best limited series and best actor and actress in a limited series (Steven Yeun and Ali Wong).
Elton John won an Emmy for outstanding variety special for “Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium," achieving EGOT—Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony—status. "Abbott Elementary" star Quinta Brunson became the second Black woman to win best actress in a comedy.
