Emmys 2022 Winners: The Complete List

Returning favorites “Succession” and “Ted Lasso” took home the top awards at the ceremony.

Forget “Stranger Things” baddie Vecna or “Euphoria” menace Nate Jacobs.

Turns out the biggest villain in television this year is “Sunday Night Football” for bumping the 2022 Emmy Awards from its long-standing prime-time perch.

So, no, you didn’t miss the awards show. The 74th annual ceremony was held on Monday night, and ― apart from the somewhat disorienting time slot ― this year’s event marked a major return to normalcy.

After two years of pandemic-adjusted proceedings, television’s biggest stars once again packed the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, which has housed the show since 2008, to celebrate in full force the shows that made us laugh, cry or even change the channel.

The year’s show was hosted by “Saturday Night Live” comedian Kenan Thompson and predominantly honored returning favorites over a fresh crop of rookie series. “Succession,” HBO’s portrait of a twisted family dynasty, and “Ted Lasso,” Apple TV+’s sports comedy starring Jason Sudeikis, once again came out on top in the drama and comedy categories after leading this year’s pack of nominees.

But newcomers including Netflix’s dystopian horror series “Squid Game” and “Abbott Elementary,” the rare network sitcom to garner awards attention, still managed to score key awards and make Emmys history in the process.

Lee Jung-jae, the star of the record-breaking South Korean drama, now stands as first performerr in a non-English series to win in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category. The ABC sitcom, meanwhile, picked up the trophy for Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series, making creator Quinta Brunson only the second Black woman to win in the category. Sheryl Lee Ralph, who also stars on the show, landed her first Emmy win after a nearly five-decade career, breaking into song during a particularly powerful acceptance speech.

Elsewhere, both Jean Smart (“Hacks”) and Zendaya (“Euphoria”) repeated their wins in the Best Actress races.

As for the limited or anthology series, “White Lotus,” HBO Max’s pointed vacation satire from creator Mike White, easily dominated with wins for cast members like Jennifer Coolidge and Murray Bartlett and ultimately triumphed over the competition in the Outstanding Limited Series category.

But just like in years past, the field was as stacked as ever with major A-list talent, resulting in Amanda Seyfried (“The Dropout”) and Michael Keaton (“Dopesick”) coming out on top in the lead acting races.
