Netflix dominates Emmy Awards for “The Crown” and Apple TV+ wins up to 10 categories

Netflix swept the Emmy Awards with the most awards by production studio. It won a total of 44 categories, including 11 awards for “The Crown,” and more than doubled the award-winning HBO/HBO Max.

The 2021 Emmy Awards were also a turning point for Apple TV+, which won a total of 10 awards, including seven awards for the comedy Ted Lasso.

As a reminder, Netflix’s numerous Emmy awards are the 34 Creative Arts Emmy Awards in 2020. However, the Crown’s Olivia Colman, Gillian Anderson, Josh O’Connor, and Ewan McGregor who appeared in “HALSTON” won the Primetime Emmy Awards in a total of 10 categories, including their performance awards.

“The Crown” also won the prestigious Best Drama Series Award, as well as Best Picture and Best Director. Netflix’s “Queen’s Gambit,” starring Anya Taylor-Joy, won the Limited Series Award for Best Work.

On the other hand, Apple TV+ has won a total of 10 awards, including 7 in prime time, the highest number ever. Apple TV +’s work includes 7 “Ted Lasso”, including Brett Goldstein and Hannah Waddingham’s Supporting Actor Award and Jason Sudeikis’ Leading Actor Award. It dominated the comedy series category, such as winning the award in the category. “Ted Lasso” also won a Best Picture in the Comedy category.

Thanks to Ted Lasso, the Apple TV + performed better than its rivals. Disney + won a total of 14 categories, more than eight in 2020, but only one Primetime Emmy Award (pre-recorded Variety Special Award for Hamilton). Both Amazon and Hulu won Emmy Awards in 2020, but none in 2021.

While rivals were crowded, HBO/HBO Max stood out with 130 nominations and won a total of 19 awards, including 9 in prime time. The biggest awards were Jean Smart from Hacks, who won the Best Actress in the Comedy category, and Mare of Easstown, who won the Best Actress in the Limited Series category.

It’s worth noting that Netflix was the number one tie for cable network HBO (before HBO Max) and Emmy Awards in 2018. In 2021, Netflix outperformed its rivals, and the streaming platform Netflix won the highest awards in four categories.

It is not yet known whether this momentum will continue even if the pandemic begins to settle down, and whether the growth in the number of subscribers will show signs of slowing down.
