2022 Emmys: HBO’s ‘Succession,’ Apple’s ‘Ted Lasso’ win top awards

Yahoo Finance’s Allie Canal joins the Live show to recap Monday night’s big winners at the 2022 Emmys ceremony.

Video Transcript

AKIKO FUJITA: Well, a big night for HBO at the 74th annual Emmy Awards, with its shows "White Lotus" and "Succession" taking the top prizes there. Let's bring in Yahoo Finance's Allie Canal to break it all down for us. Allie, I loved "White Lotus." I love "Succession." Certainly, it feels like HBO is back on top, or is it just for now?

ALEXANDRA CANAL: I think it's back on top. I mean, a big night overall. And I know you're a succession super fan, Akiko, so more on that in a bit. But then HBO network overall took home the most total wins by far, a whopping 37 compared to Netflix's 26. Now, these numbers do include the Creative Arts Awards, which are focused more on technical and artistic achievements.

But even in the primetime categories, HBO, once again, led the way, 12 total wins, while Netflix only nabbed three. So a much different story from last year. When we saw Netflix finally beat out HBO, we knew it would be a tougher accomplishment this time around, considering Netflix didn't have "The Crown" or "The Queen's Gambit," two big winners from last year.

And as I alluded to, in another twist from last year, HBO had "Succession." This show just racks up the awards, claiming the big prize of the night, Best Drama. This is the second time "Succession" has won that award, and amid some pretty stiff competition, too, beating out shows like "Squid Game" and "Euphoria."

But although "Succession" was the most nominated show of the night, it did fail to leave with the most wins. That accomplishment went to another HBO favorite, "The White Lotus," another big, Akiko, favorite with 10 total wins, followed by "Euphoria" and "Squid Game" with six apiece. And both of those shows, by the way, delivered in the drama acting categories, with Zendaya winning her second Emmy for Best Actress, while "Squid Game" star Lee Jung-Jae took home Best Actor.

And then finally, I got to give a shout out to one of my favorites, "Ted Lasso." For the second consecutive year, the show took home Best Comedy, with Jason Sudeikis winning Best Actor, Brett Goldstein winning Best Supporting Actor. But Akiko, I don't know if you're a fan of "Ted Lasso," but I do need to know when we're going to get season 3. It's been too long. I was hoping maybe they would tease something last night at the Emmys, but we didn't get anything. So that's one show we're looking forward to seeing.

AKIKO FUJITA: It is a fan favorite. Every time I watch that show, I just crave those biscuits, right?

ALEXANDRA CANAL: Me, too. Yes, that's the only thing I ate.

AKIKO FUJITA: Yeah, those biscuits look amazing. All right, Allie Canal, thanks so much for that.
