By Alisha Durosier, Student Life Editor

The 73rd Primetime Emmy awards took place Sept. 19 at the L. A. Live entertainment complex. Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, the Emmys hosted a fully COVID-19 vaccinated crowd. 

The night’s big winners were“The Crown,” which took home awards from all seven drama categories, including outstanding drama series and four acting categories. Comedy series, and “Ted Lasso,” which swept the comedy categories, winning seven out of the eight categories, including best lead actor in a comedy series. 

Among the biggest losers was “The Handmaid’s Tale.” The drama had 21 nominations this season (including creative Emmy nominations), but went home empty handed. After this season’s big loss, the series broke the record for the most Emmy losses in one season. 

This year’s Emmys also made history Sunday night, awarding Michaela Coel, the first black woman to win the Emmy for limited series writing for her work on the HBO series “I May Destroy You.”
