Ted Lasso is faking that expression. He thinks tea is garbage water.


The 73rd Primetime Emmys Awards are finished. There were more than a few surprises, including The Queen's Gambit, which won two awards overall, taking home best limited series, beating out Mare of Easttown. Turns out sexy chess is for everyone.

Other big winners: Ted Lasso, with four statues, including best comedy series and best comedy actor for Jason Sudeikis. The Crown unsurprisingly took home the most wins of the night with a whopping seven, including a best lead actress win for Olivia Colman (Emma Corrin missed out).

Mare of Easttown, which took home three awards overall, saw hot favorite Kate Winslet win best actress in a limited series. Plus Evan Peters won his first Emmy for best supporting actor. A surprise packet on the night, the comedy Hacks, which scored three wins overall, took home writing and directing awards, as well as best lead actress in a comedy for the magnificent Jean Smart.

Last but certainly not least, Michaela Coel took home a hugely deserved win for best writing for a limited series with I May Destroy You.

Controversially, the Emmys ceremony didn't see a single person of color win an acting award, despite a record lineup of nominees.

See the full list of winners below.
