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.


Will the Emmys still have a second awards show in September?

This year, there will technically be two 2024 Emmy Awards shows, the postponed 75th Emmys happening on Monday (15 January) and the 76th Emmy Awards in September. The former will be awarding shows that were released between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, while the latter will recognise series and shows released between 1 May 2023 and 31 May 2024.

Did the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards give a little insight into what will win tonight?

So far, Succession and The Bear have completely dominated the TV competition at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards. Beef also led several of the categories for limited series.

Oftentimes, the Emmys arrive ahead of the Golden Globes, however, this year, with the delayed Emmy Awards, the order has flipped. Similarly to how the Golden Globes act as a predictor for the Oscars, I think it’ll do the same for the Emmys.

Succession’s brutal finale cements Shakespearean tragedy as one of this century’s greatest works of art

Whether you’re a paid-up member of the Waystar Royco fan club or you’ve never seen an episode of Succession in your life, you’ll surely be aware that it’s the show to beat at this year’s Emmys.

With its fourth and final season coming to a suitably dramatic finish last summer, the Jesse Armstrong-created drama is nominated for 27 Emmy awards, with some actors going head-to-head for the same award.

Here’s Louis Chilton’s take on Succession’s stunning conclusion, and why all the high praise is warranted:

Succession’s finale cemented Shakespearean tragedy as one of greatest works of art

Jesse Armstrong’s blackly comic drama, which has the most Emmy nominations of any show this year, came to an end in May after four sensational seasons. It wasn’t just a compelling piece of television, writes Louis Chilton – it was a towering artistic achievement

As the biggest night in television approaches, not everyone has a sunny outlook on the current landscape of TV.
