Emmy Winners 2022: The White Lotus Leads the Pack With 5 Major Awards, Ted Lasso in Close Second

White Lotus won big at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards held early Tuesday. The Mike White-helmed comedy-drama anthology earned HBO’s favor five awards, out of 20 nominations earned for the main event. The series received individual honors for Best Anthology Series, Best Supporting Actor (Murray Bartlett), Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Coolidge), and Best Direction and Best Writing in a Limited Series (Mike White). The upbeat series was renewed for Season 2 in August, and therefore does not qualify for the latter two awards in the next awards season.

In close second is the Jason Sudeikis-led sports comedy, Ted Lasso, which tied for 20 nominations with The White Lotus above. The AppleTV+ show earned four awards, including a second straight Outstanding Comedy Series, along with acting awards for Sudeikis and Brett Goldstein. The series also won the award for Best Direction in a Comedy Series. Succession, on the other hand, a clear Emmy favorite with 25 nominations, claimed trophies in three categories: Best Drama Series (for the second time), Best Supporting Actor (Matthew McFadden), and Best Writing (Jesse Armstrong).

If you consider the Creative Arts Emmys – held last week – White Lotus has managed to win 10 awards, helping HBO/HBO Max take home 38 awards from the entire show. The studio won 19 trophies last year, which is more than double this year’s achievement. Other notable moments included Zendaya winning Best Actress for Euphoria, making her the youngest actress to win two Emmys in this category – the first award in 2020. On the other end, Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae became the first Asian actor to win a lead role. In a drama series for Netflix. The studio came in second with 26 total Emmys — far below the 46 they picked up last year, thanks to The Crown and the Anya Taylor-Joy-led chess miniseries, The Queen’s Gambit.
