The Primetime Emmy Awards are widely regarded as “TV’s biggest night”, and they lived up to that name on Monday. This year’s ceremony gave us many unforgettable moments, as The White Lotus, Ted Lasso, and Succession led the list of winners in their respective categories.

The White Lotus was the biggest winner of the night in the limited series field. In addition to netting a trophy for the outstanding limited series, its creator Mike White collected two Emmys for his work as a writer and director, while Murray Bartlett and Jennifer Coolidge won acting awards for their respective performances.

The White Lotus wasn’t the only HBO show to dominate the conversation at this year’s Emmys. It was also a big night for Succession, which won a total of three Primetime Emmy Awards, including its second trophy for the outstanding drama series.

As for the comedy field, Apple TV+ sports comedy Ted Lasso repeated its success from last year. It was named outstanding comedy series and won three more awards—lead actor (Jason Sudeikis), supporting actor (Brett Goldstein), and outstanding directing (MJ Delane).

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards returned to their regular venue at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 12. Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson took over hosting duties for the first time.
