Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO dominated the Emmys Monday with 14 wins, 10 more than any other network or streaming service.
Succession, The White Lotus, and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver led the network to the impressive showing.
Apple TV+ earned its awards for Ted Lasso and Netflix for Squid Game, while Disney’s Hulu took home awards for both Best Actor and Best Actress in a Limited Series (Amanda Seyfried in The Dropout and Michael Keaton in Dopesick, respectively).
Streaming services more broadly dominated the “prestige” categories, the only exception being ABC’s Abbott Elementary winning for best comedy writing.
NBC’s wins were for live productions (SNL and the Super Bowl halftime show), as was CBS’ lone win (Adele One Night Only).
While not necessarily a bellwether, the award distribution is yet more evidence of subscription streaming companies’ dominance over prestige TV production compared to traditional linear broadcasters.
