After excelling in creativity last year, The Emmy in 2021 returned to the traditional format, with an audience in attendance, albeit with some pandemic tweaks – the award was held with guests restricted. And he didn’t know how to maintain the innovative and graceful spirit of last season, having thrown a tepid party, to say the least. In Los Angeles, it was comedian Cedric the Entertainer, star of the series “The Neighborhood”, who led the main night of American television.

It was also a party of few surprises. Achieve the main victory “Queen’s Gambit” In the most controversial award, Best Miniseries. Netflix’s chess plot has been overtaken by other furious acts such as “I May Destroy You” and “Mare of Easttown,” which drew frustrating comments on social media.

In addition to the art figurines announced Sunday, “The Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown” tied for 11 Emmys wins, while “Ted Lasso” had seven and “Mare of Easttown” four.

Reactions on social media have been positive for Ted Lasso who dominated the comedy segment and started the night with everything. The first two figurines were handed over to an Apple TV+ production: Best Actress (by Hannah Waddingham) and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Brett Goldstein). The field was not completed because “Hacks” later showed its strength, taking the award for screenplay, directing (Lucia Aniello) and Best Actress to Jean Smart. But “Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis took back the reins with a Best Actor Emmy. Ultimately, the series won seven Emmy Awards and was crowned Best Comedy this season.

Last week, the Emmy presented the art awards which were dominated by the mini-series “The Queen’s Gambit” with seven statues – followed by “Pose” and “Saturday Night Live” with three statues each.

One of the surprises this year was the fact that Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale received 21 nominations (between artistic and major categories) and won no awards. Only “The Crown,” “The Mandalorian” (with 24 nominations each), and “Wandavision” (with 23) had more than the dystopian series starring Elisabeth Moss. In 2017, the production was dedicated as Best Drama. In 2018 and 2020, she received nominations in this category, but did not take the bust.


Despite celebrating 44% of non-white actors among the nominees, the truth is that the 2021 Emmy has once again been the target of controversy due to a lack of representation among the winners. All 12 statuettes awarded to an actor—between main and supporting, whether in comedies, dramas, or miniseries—were to white artists.
