Emmy Awards 2021: The Winners List (Updating Live)

The wait is finally over! The 2021 Emmy Awards, celebrating the year’s best television and a return to live events, are here. Acclaimed actors, directors, writers, producers and more assembled at L.A. Live’s Event Deck at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Sunday night. 

After going virtual in 2020, the Emmys are being held in-person this year. The TV Academy has 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 U.S. 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 and the media center was replaced by a virtual counterpart.

“Doing it in-person, if they can do it safely, is showing that Hollywood moves forward in difficult times,” Darin Pfeiffer, events expert and founder and CEO of the Impact Agency, told Variety. “I think that’s what’s been great about what Hollywood’s been doing — just plowing forward safely and with creative ways to keep the industry going.”

Netflix’s “The Crown” and Disney Plus’ “The Mandalorian” led the nominations with 24 each, going into the night, followed by Marvel and Disney Plus’ “WandaVision” with 23 and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” with 21. HBO and HBO Max topped networks and streamers with 130 total nominations, followed closely behind by Netflix with 129. Mj Rodriguez, RuPaul, Kenan Thompson, Bowen Yang, Bo Burnham and Michael K. Williams are among the stars who stand to make history tonight.

The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, air on CBS and Paramount Plus at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
