The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards aired on Monday (15 January) following a four-month delay, with the best talent in television gathering in Los Angeles for a shimmering ceremony.

The annual celebration of the year’s most brilliant TV shows took place half a year after nominations were announced back in July.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for September but was pushed back due to the Hollywood writer and actor strikes that brought the industry to a standstill last year. As such, these awards honoured shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, meaning it felt a bit like deja vu.

The show with the most nominations was Succession, the fourth and final season of which aired on HBO last year. The drama took home six awards. Fellow HBO dramas The Last of Us and The White Lotus were also heavily nominated, but failed to compete in terms of wins on the night.

Netflix’s limited series Beef and Hulu’s comedy The Bear also saw a raft of big wins at the ceremony.

Why wasn’t The Morning Show nominated for any Emmys?

Many fans of The Morning Show were wondering why the Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston-fronted series received a grand total of zero nominations at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Fear not, Apple TV’s duo have not been snubbed by voters – the show is simply ineligible this time around.

These Emmys are a postponed version of the 2023 ceremony, which was delayed due to the Hollywood strikes. As such, tonight’s awards honour shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023. The Morning Show’s recent third season, which aired from 13 September to 8 November 2023, won’t be eligible until next time around.

Aubrey Plaza’s yellow dress sparks memes

While posing outside of the Peacock Theater, Plaza turned heads with her look: a yellow dress with a giant sewing needle poked through the square-cut top. She paired the floor-length gown, which was designed by Loewe, with silver earrings and rings, while she wore her hair in a half-ponytail.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Plaza’s outfit divided viewers, with many reacting with memes about the front of the dress resembling a Post-it note.

All the best looks from the 2024 Emmy Awards

We learned that red won’t be going anywhere this season, as it proved to be a favourite among attendees, with Grey’s Anatomy alum Katherine Heigl, Abbott Elementary’s Janelle James, and Daisy Jones and The Six’s Camila Morrone all stunning in simple, yet elegant red gowns. Old Hollywood glamour was also on display on the red carpet, with many stars arriving in their best satin skirts, feathered dresses, and silver or gold statement necklaces.

Emmys 2024 sees Succession, Beef and The Bear share the vast majority of spoils

“It might be remembered as a three-way battle, but there was no real battle about it,” writes Louis Chilton. “HBO’s universally acclaimed drama Succession ended the night as the most prolific victor, winning a total of six awards in the drama categories, including Best Series, Best Actor (for Kieran Culkin), Best Actress (for Sarah Snook) and Best Supporting Actor (for Matthew Macfadyen).

“The comedy strand, meanwhile, was dominated by FX’s knife-edge culinary comedy The Bear, with Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach taking home three of the four acting prizes. And in the limited series field, it was Netflix’s tit-for-tat thriller Beef that won the night, garnering five wins.”

Stephen Colbert reveals that his wife saved his life after his appendix burst

The late-night host then elaborated on his ruptured appendix, and how McGee-Colbert stepped in to help. “First, appendix. And I was in a lot of pain. It was the last show before we took a break. And I went: ‘I’ll just go do the show anyway. I’m sure we’ll be fine.’ By the time the show’s over I had a 102.5 fever. I was in shock. I had blood poisoning,” he recalled.

Colbert then joked about the situation, offering a warning to viewers: “Don’t do it, kids. Don’t broadcast with blood poisoning!”

Winners list in full

That brings an end to the 2024 Emmy Awards (which were actually the 2023 Emmy Awards). I think it’s safe to say that Golden Globes host Jo Koy will be looking enviously at how smoothly that ceremony went. It was classy and ended with a clip of Martin Luther King Jr on his day of celebration, bravo.

Thanks for joining us here at The Independent where we’ll continue to bring you reactions from the show as my poor colleagues in the UK get some sleep.

Ebon Moss-Bachrach snogs Matty Matheson’s face off

While accepting the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, TV chef-turned-actor Matty Matheson was gripped by his co-star Ebon Moss-Bachrach who planted a huge snog on his lips.

The pair held in embrace for a good few seconds as the crowd cheered before finally parting. “I love you Ebon,” a dazed Matheson said after. He continued to thank restaurants in general and the hospitality industry.
