Shows on streaming services dominated many people's spare time during the pandemic. Many of those shows ended up dominating this year's Emmys as well.

The 73rd annual Emmy Awards were held on Sunday night in Los Angeles, where they were hosted by the comedian Cedric the Entertainer. Netflix won two of the top awards, including best drama, for the British royal drama The Crown, and best limited series, for the chess-prodigy odyssey The Queen's Gambit. Ted Lasso, on Apple TV+, won for best comedy series.

Winners in the acting categories included Kate Winslet, Jean Smart, Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Colman. Michaela Coel, the creator, writer, co-director and star of the BBC and HBO limited series I May Destroy You, won for best writing in a limited series, her first Emmy. She also became the first black woman to win in that category.
