The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were held in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, yesterday, and it was a star-studded event. But more than the suits and the gowns, the awards got more attention (how it should be!)

Shows from multiple streaming platforms were showered with much-deserving awards, but only a few stood out. Series from HBO Max and Apple TV+ took most nominations and awards while others did not get any attention.

HBO Max dominated the event with 12 awards: five for The White Lotus, four for Succession, and one for Euphoria, Last Week Tonight, and Hacks.

Apple TV+ commanded all four of its awards with Ted Lasso, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Lead Actor, Comedy, Support Actor, Comedy, and Directing, Comedy. Ted Lasso won prizes at the last year’s event.

However, popular shows were shut out. Apple TV+’s Severance, Netflix’s Stranger Things, Only Murders in the Building, and HBO Max’s Better Call Saul and Barry had 17 nominations but only won three non-Primetime Emmys.

Netflix’s Squid Game took two Primetime Emmys, and Ozark took one award. On the other hand, Hulu took two awards for Dopesick and The Dropout, while Prime Video seized one prize for Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

Once again, streaming platforms conquered the Emmys over linear TV, as significant networks took just three Primetime Emmys combined.
