Last year’s WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes pushed the Primetime Emmys ceremony back from its usual slot in September. The 75th annual awards finally arrived on Jan. 15. The biggest victors of the night were “Succession” and “The Bear” with six wins each, and “Beef” with five. 

“The Bear,” in particular, cooked. Christopher Storer’s series, set at a Chicago sandwich joint, won for outstanding comedy series, writing, and directing. In the performance categories, Jeremy Allen White won for lead actor, Ayo Edebiri for supporting actress, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach for supporting actor. 

Meanwhile, HBO swept the drama categories. “Succession,” which won for outstanding drama series, netted lead actor for Kieran Culkin, supporting actor for Matthew Macfadyen, and supporting actress for Sarah Snook. “The Last of Us” took home both guest actor and guest actress statuettes for Nick Offerman and Storm Reid, respectively. Jennifer Coolidge won her second consecutive Emmy for supporting actress on “The White Lotus,” capping off the achievement with an acceptance speech in which she thanked “all the evil gays.” 

Netflix’s “Beef” dominated the limited series races, earning the top prize along with lead actor for Steven Yeun, lead actress for Ali Wong, and both writing and directing for creator Lee Sung Jin. 

“A lot of the suicidal ideation in this show was based on stuff that I and some of the folks up here have struggled with over the years,” Lee said in his acceptance speech for outstanding limited series. “So I’m really grateful and humbled by everyone who watched the show and reached out about their own personal struggles. It’s very life-affirming, so thank you.”
