Emmy Winners 2021: The Crown Sweeps the Night, Tied With The Queen’s Gambit Overall


The Crown swept its Emmy Awards categories at the 2021 ceremony, winning seven prizes on the night. Netflix’s British monarchy show won best drama series, best lead actress (Olivia Colman), best lead actor (Josh O’Connor), best supporting actress (Gillian Anderson), best supporting actor (Tobias Menzies), best directing (Jessica Hobbs for the season 4 finale), and best writing (Peter Morgan also for the season 4 finale). In the comedy department, the beloved Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso and the acclaimed HBO Max series Hacks shared the wins. Though they weren’t competing in the best lead actor and actress departments, where Jason Sudeikis and Jean Smart won respectively.

Put together with its counterpart, the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Netflix is the clear winner of the 2021 Emmys with 43 prizes. HBO is the next best with 19, if you take HBO and HBO Max together. For Netflix, The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit — the chess miniseries — are tied overall with 11 Emmys apiece. While The Crown won in more major aforementioned categories, The Queen’s Gambit fared better in the craft and technical departments (cinematography, costumes, make-up, editing, music composition, production design, and sound editing and mixing). With that, here’s the full list of the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards winners presented on Sunday:
