Last night, the 2021 Emmy Awards were held outside at L.A. Live’s Event Deck at the Microsoft Theater. Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the 600 attendees were required to have proof of vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test taken 48 hours before the event. Like many other Emmy’s of the past, viewers were left disappointed, but not surprised, that no one from a minority group took home awards from any of the acting categories.
Apple Tv Plus’s “Ted Lasso” and Netflix’s “The Crown” nabbed the vast majority of the awards, earning Netflix the most awards for a streaming service (44) for the first time. “Ted Lasso” and HBO’s “Mare of Easttown” picked up both supporting acting categories for comedy and limited series. Among other winners were Michaela Coen for “I May Destroy You.” In her speech, she encouraged writers to “write the tale that scares you. That makes you feel uncertain. That isn’t comfortable” and dedicated her story to all survivors of sexual assault. Rupaul also made history with his 11th Emmy by having the most wins by any black actor.
