The Primetime Emmy Awards 2021, the 73rd edition of premier television awards was held today. The Emmys recognise the best television medium has to offer. They serve the same function as Academy Awards for movies, and like Oscars, they are the most prestigious awards for the field.
Going into the ceremony, Ted Lasso was the biggest contender with most number of nominations: 13. However, The Crown won the event by sweeping seven big awards. Jason Sudeikis won for his performance in Ted Lasso, while the show won Outstanding Comedy Series award.

Actor and comedian Cedric Antonio Kyles, better known by his stage name Cedric the Entertainer, hosted the live ceremony.
