Emmy's 2024: Stars walk 'silver carpet' as event gets underway

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards aired on Monday (15 January) following a four-month delay, with the best talent in television gathering in Los Angeles for a shimmering ceremony.

The annual celebration of the year’s most brilliant TV shows took place half a year after nominations were announced back in July.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for September but was pushed back due to the Hollywood writer and actor strikes that brought the industry to a standstill last year. As such, these awards honoured shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, meaning it felt a bit like deja vu.

The show with the most nominations was Succession, the fourth and final season of which aired on HBO last year. The drama took home six awards. Fellow HBO dramas The Last of Us and The White Lotus were also heavily nominated, but failed to compete in terms of wins on the night.

Netflix’s limited series Beef and Hulu’s comedy The Bear also saw a raft of big wins at the ceremony.

You can find a full list of all the winners here.


The Bear stars share lengthy on-stage kiss after Emmys win

Ebon Moss-Bachrach planted a huge kiss on Matty Matheson’s lips after The Bear won Best Comedy Series.

“I just want to thank restaurants as a whole, hospitality as a whole,” TV chef-turned-actor Matheson began on stage. But before he could finish, Moss-Bachrach – who plays Cousin Richie on the show – grabbed Mattheson by the sides of his head and pulled him in for a lengthy smooch, causing shocked reactions from their cast mates and cheers from the audience.

Emmys host Anthony Anderson gives verdict on Jo Koy

The day of the Emmys, host Anthony Anderson weighed in on Jo Koy’s controversial performance at last week’s Golden Globes.

In the days since Koy’s widely-panned hosting job, the 52-year-old stand-up comedian has apologised for throwing his writers under the bus during his monologue.

Reacting to the outcry, Anderson told Fox News: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. There’s going to be criticism.”

Why wasn’t The Morning Show nominated for any Emmys?

Many fans of The Morning Show were wondering why the Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston-fronted series received a grand total of zero nominations at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Fear not, Apple TV’s duo have not been snubbed by voters – the show is simply ineligible this time around.

These Emmys are a postponed version of the 2023 ceremony, which was delayed due to the Hollywood strikes. As such, tonight’s awards honour shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023. The Morning Show’s recent third season, which aired from 13 September to 8 November 2023, won’t be eligible until next time around.

Emmys 2024 sees Succession, Beef and The Bear share the vast majority of spoils

“It might be remembered as a three-way battle, but there was no real battle about it,” writes Louis Chilton. “HBO’s universally acclaimed drama Succession ended the night as the most prolific victor, winning a total of six awards in the drama categories, including Best Series, Best Actor (for Kieran Culkin), Best Actress (for Sarah Snook) and Best Supporting Actor (for Matthew Macfadyen).

“The comedy strand, meanwhile, was dominated by FX’s knife-edge culinary comedy The Bear, with Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach taking home three of the four acting prizes. And in the limited series field, it was Netflix’s tit-for-tat thriller Beef that won the night, garnering five wins.”
