Los Angeles (California) [US], September 20 (ANI): Celebrating the best of TV, the annual Emmy Awards ceremony was held on Sunday night at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles, California, with 'The Crown', 'Ted Lasso' and 'Mare of Easttown' taking home a whopping 10 of the 12 acting awards.

'Ted Lasso' from Apple TV Plus and HBO's 'Mare of Easttown' picked up the first awards at the 73rd Primetime Emmys. Each of them won supporting acting prizes for a comedy and limited series, respectively.

The outstanding lead actor in a comedy award was picked by Jason Sudeikis for his turn as the titular sensitive soccer coach in 'Ted Lasso', while Kate Winslet won lead actress in a limited series or movie for her role as a detective sergeant in 'Mare of Easttown'.

Netflix's 'The Crown' reigned over the night with seven honours, picking up the drama series trophy, as well as prizes for lead actress (Olivia Colman), lead actor (Josh O'Connor), supporting actress (Gillian Anderson), supporting actor (Tobias Menzies), outstanding writing (Peter Morgan) and directing (Jessica Hobbs).

'Ted Lasso' and 'The Queen's Gambit' nabbed outstanding comedy and limited series awards respectively. Netflix won more Emmys than any other network or platform for the first time ever, with 44 total awards, courtesy of 'The Crown' and 'Gambit'.

Meanwhile, several major comedy prizes were won by 'Hacks'.

After going virtual in 2020, the Emmys were held in-person this year. The TV Academy limited the ceremony to about 600 attendees, due to health and safety guidelines as the delta variant of COVID-19 continues to rage across the US.

All attendees were required to show proof of vaccination and a negative COVID test, taken 48 hours before the ceremony. The event was also moved outdoors to L.A. Live's Event Deck at the Microsoft Theater and the media centre was replaced by a virtual counterpart, as per Variety. (ANI)
