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.

Unlike the mostly virtual ceremony of last year necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic, this year saw a full-fledged in-person ceremony at Event Deck at L.A. Live, in Los Angeles. Actor and comedian Cedric Antonio Kyles, better known by his stage name Cedric the Entertainer, hosted the live ceremony.

From Kate Winslet’s Mare of Easttown win to all the acting wins that Netflix’s The Crown bagged, here is the complete list of winners for this year’s Emmys.
