HBO's Succession was an Emmy favourite with 25 nominations

  • HBO’s Succession won Outstanding Drama Series at Emmys 2022
  • Zendaya won best lead actress in a drama for Euphoria for the second time
  • Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae lifts the trophy for best actor in a drama

The White Lotus won big at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, held early Tuesday. The Mike White-helmed comedy-drama anthology netted five awards in HBO's favour, out of the 20 nominations it earned for the main event. The series bagged trophies for best anthology series, best supporting actor (Murray Bartlett), best supporting actress (Jennifer Coolidge), and individual honours for best directing and best writing in a limited series (Mike White). The upbeat series got renewed for season 2 back in August, and so it does not qualify for the latter two prizes in the next awards season.

Following in close second is the Jason Sudeikis-led sports comedy, Ted Lasso, which tied for 20 nominations with the aforementioned The White Lotus. The AppleTV+ show scored four awards, including a second straight Outstanding Comedy Series, alongside acting awards for Sudeikis and Brett Goldstein. The series also bagged an award for best directing in a comedy series. On the other hand, Succession, a clear Emmy favourite with 25 nominations, claimed trophies in three categories: best drama series (second time), best supporting actor (Matthew Macfayden), and best writing (Jesse Armstrong).

If you consider the Creative Arts Emmys — held last week — The White Lotus has managed to win 10 awards, helping HBO/ HBO Max pick up 38 awards from the entire show. The studio took home 19 trophies last year, marking double the achievement this year. Other notable moments include Zendaya winning best actress for Euphoria, making her the youngest actress to ever win two Emmys in the category — first award in 2020. On the other end, Squid Game's Lee Jung-jae became the first Asian actor to win lead actor in a drama series, for Netflix. The studio came second with 26 total Emmys — far down from the 46 they picked up last year, thanks to The Crown and the Anya Taylor-Joy-led chess miniseries, The Queen's Gambit.
