The Bear, Succession, Beef Dominate 75th Annual Primetime Emmys

It’s pretty crazy that the nominations for the 75th Annual Primetime Emmys were announced all the way back on July 12, 2023, over six months ago. The voting by the Television Academy for the Emmys was also done and over with before the awards ceremony was delayed until January 2024, mainly due to the actor and writers’ strike that would have made a Sept. ceremony not quite as celebratory.

The 75th Primetime Emmys finally happened on Monday night, Jan. 15, hosted by actor and game show host, Anthony Anderson, and many of the series and performances that have been winning Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards over the past few weeks have continued to do the same at the Emmys. In fact, it’s a little surprising how consistent this year’s TV awards have been, considering the months in between the voting periods for the various groups. It just goes to show that quality television knows no time limits.

HBO‘s Succession added six more Emmys to the 13 it garnered from previous seasons, winning Drama Series for its third year running, with the series coming to a conclusion with the end of Season 4 in May 2023. After multiple previous nominations, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook finally won their Emmys, after receiving Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards over the past two weeks. Matthew Macfadyen won his second Emmy in a row for his supporting role in the series, and the episode, “Connor’s Wedding,” received Emmys for its writing by Jesse Armstrong and direction by Mark Mylod, the latter’s third career Emmy for the series.

The FX comedy series, The Bear, won six more Emmys for its FIRST season (whereas the Golden Globes were doled out for its second season) with Jeremy Allen WhiteEbon Moss-Bachrach, and Ayo Edebiri all winning in their categories early in the night, as well as Emmys won for writing and directing by Christopher Storer for episodes “System” and “Review.” Adding in the awards it made at the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend, The Bear is the Emmy champ this year with 10 wins.

Also, Lee Sung Jin‘s popular Netflix limited series, Beef, did very well with wins for Ali Wong and Steven Yeun, as well as Emmys for its writing and direction (by Jin), and of course, winning for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series. Beef ended up winning eight Emmys total for its single-season run.

Other winners for the night included Jennifer Coolidge (for The White Lotus, now in the Drama category rather than Limited/Anthology Series), Quinta Brunson (for Lead Actress in Abbott Elementary vs. for her writing), while Niecy Nash-Betts and Paul Walter Hauser won for their supporting roles in the limited series, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story for Netflix and Apple TV‘s Black Bird, respectively.

Previous Emmy winners, Apple’s Ted Lasso and Netflix’s The Crown went home empty-handed on Monday night, even though they both won Creative Arts Emmys. AMC‘s Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, ended its six-season run with 53 Primetime Emmy nominations but ZERO wins.

Other than Brunson’s win, the Emmys continue to be all about cable and streaming.
