The 2022 Emmy Awards have come to a close after a particularly big night for the cast and crew of HBO That white lotus.
The fortune satire received awards in five categories, honoring stars Murray Bartlett and Jennifer Coolidge for their acting and creator Mike White for his writing and direction.
Coolidge should also have taken home the award for best speech of the night by telling the crowd that a preparatory lavender bath before the ceremony puffed her up like a balloon and made it difficult for her to speak.
successorMeanwhile, he won the top gong for best drama. While accepting the award, its creator, British novelist Jesse Armstrong, took the opportunity on stage to make a poorly received comparison between the show and King Charles III’s accession to the throne.
The mic picked up Logan Roy star Brian Cox telling him to “keep it royalist” but it was too late.
The Brits did very well at the ceremony in Los Angeles. Matthew Macfadyen picked up a Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role as the betrayed Tom succession, while Teddy Lasso‘s Brett Goldstein and MJ Delaney each won acting and directing awards.
Armstrong was challenged for the biggest boobs of the night by Jimmy Kimmel, who committed to a slightly too harsh joke by lying on the floor while Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary School) delivered her acceptance speech – pretending to have passed out after downing too many skinny margaritas after losing in his own category.
Abbott Elementary School Star Sheryl Lee Ralph showed them how it should, or at least couldbelting out the lyrics to US jazz singer Dianne Reeves’ “Endangered Species” and leaving the audience stunned.
Overall, it was a triumphant night for HBO, which carries both The White Lotus and successoras well as euphoria and Chop – whose actors, Zendaya and Jean Smart, each picked up gongs for their work.
It wasn’t such a successful evening for Netflix, its flagship show stranger things received no credit for its fourth series.
The streamer was at least honored via Squid Gamethe sensational South Korean survival drama, which won the Best Acting and Best Director categories.
However, the show was used as another barb against Netflix by Emmy host Kenan Thompson, who said, “If you don’t know what Squid Game It’s the competition you enter when you’re in massive debt and desperate for cash.
“Joined the cast next season? Netflix.”
Michael Keaton received the award for Best Actor in a Limited Series for his work in stunnedwhile Amanda Seyfried was recognized for her acclaimed performance as Elizabeth Holmes in Best Actress in a Limited Series The Dropout.
