Netflix’s “The Crown” was the big winner at Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, picking up seven gongs, the most of any show.
The success meant Netflix won the highest tally of awards of all the various networks and streaming services. It took home 10 trophies in total as “The Queen’s Gambit” collected two awards, including outstanding limited series, and “Halston” earned one award.
Between premium cable channel HBO and streaming service HBO Max, the latter studio took home nine awards. Its show “Mare of Eastown” garnered four wins, “Last Week Tonight” earned two, “Hacks” scored three and “I May Destroy You” secured one.
Apple TV+ earned four awards for “Ted Lasso,” ViacomCBS picked up two for “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and a Stephen Colbert election special, while both NBC and Disney collected one award each.
This year’s ceremony took place at L.A. Live’s Event Deck instead of the Microsoft Theater, which has been home to the Emmys since 2008. Typically, attendees would have been seated in rows in a theater, but instead congregated at small tables due to the Covid pandemic.
