The 2022 Primetime Emmys gave us a number of the finest and worst of those sorts of fancy Hollywood awards ceremonies, from thrilling new honorees and inspirational acceptance speeches to groaner bits that lasted endlessly and a handful of egregious snubs. Let’s attempt to type by means of all of it by figuring out the evening’s most notable Winners and Losers.

WINNER: HBO, typically


HBO and its new guardian firm have had a bizarre couple of weeks with varied merger and/or Batgirl fiascos, however on Monday evening they went again to what they do finest: Gathering a wheelbarrow stuffed with trophies at prestigious tv awards exhibits. Succession? Received lots. The White Lotus? Received a LOT. Jean Good and Zendaya of their lead roles on Hacks and Euphoria? Received, though please contemplate this my official pitch for them to look on one another’s present within the subsequent season. I feel the world might use Jean Good as a wiseass English instructor on Euphoria. I feel we’ve earned that.

However yeah, only a dominant efficiency by the community that sort of put status tv on the map just a few many years in the past. And, the flipside of that coin, a fairly disappointing efficiency for a slew of different premium networks and streamers, aside from Apple and Ted Lasso. Though Apple additionally bought blanked for its different massive hit, Severance. So there was that. That most likely stung. Not as a lot as the tough however extraordinarily true monologue jokes about Showtime (barely exists as a community regardless of the Yellowjackets love) and Netflix (that debt joke… yeesh), I think about. Slightly sting. A child bee. Slightly child bee with just a little child stinger.

Let’s transfer on earlier than this will get bizarre.

LOSER: Higher Name Saul


It’s insanity to me that Better Call Saul has but to win a single Emmy. I can perceive the idea of Breaking Unhealthy fatigue after that present cleaned up for just a few years, and I get that spin-offs aren’t all the time seen as favorably because the originals they have been based mostly on, however…yeah. No. That is nuts. How did Rhea Seehorn not win? How did Bob Odenkirk not win? How did Tony Dalton not even get nominated for taking part in Lalo Salamanca, the most charismatic and devious villain on all of tv. It’s not proper. I hate it. I’m mad. And I’m much more mad now that I remembered Frasier gained a zillion Emmys within the Nineties and that present was a derivative of Cheers, so there’s precedent right here. Come on. Jesus Christ.

The silver lining right here is that the yr’s eligibility window meant that solely the primary six episodes from the break up ultimate season have been thought-about, which implies everybody will get one other likelihood to repair this subsequent yr. It’s going to be bizarre handy out a bunch of {hardware} to a present that ended like 14 months earlier, however “bizarre” is best than “a gross miscarriage of justice that leads to me going to jail for burning Hollywood to the bottom,” so I’ll take it.

WINNER: Sheryl Lee Ralph

Three issues are price noting right here:

  • Sheryl Lee Ralph guidelines
  • It was cool to see Abbott Elementary take dwelling no matter awards Ted Lasso didn’t win, each as a result of it’s good to see a community sitcom achieve 2022 and since Abbott Elementary is sweet as heck
  • I can not even start to fathom the quantity of confidence it takes to face up on the stage in entrance of hundreds of thousands of individuals and full-on sing the primary chunk of your acceptance speech

I’d crash by means of as many brick partitions as Sheryl Lee Ralph requested me to now. I hope she retains it underneath, say, three, only for the sake of my skull, however I’ll maintain going till she says cease.

I imply, can we nonetheless want bits in 2022? Or massive tune and dance numbers? Do we’d like dudes playing dead on the stage throughout acceptance speeches by first-time winners of enjoyable exhibits? I… I don’t know. I actually don’t. I doubt individuals watching at dwelling are that jazzed about them at this level. There’s one thing to be mentioned for making an attempt to make the present entertaining for viewers who don’t essentially care in regards to the community scorekeeping and inside baseball parts of flubs and snubs, particularly at a time when there are such a lot of exhibits that your common civilian most likely isn’t even watching greater than a handful of the exhibits that bought nominated. That’s truthful.

I… don’t know, although. We might most likely reduce the entire singing and many of the bits and simply let humorous/charming individuals current to the winners and see if we will get this sucker in underneath two hours. Not product of time over right here.

WINNER: Jennifer Coolidge


GOOD: Jennifer Coolidge gained for her efficiency on White Lotus and gave an acceptance speech that began with a short chat about lavender baths and bloating, which couldn’t probably have been extra charming.

BAD: They began taking part in her off after what felt like 30 seconds, which stunk, particularly contemplating the factor I discussed within the final blurb about time burned on bits and singing that meant properly however dragged the remainder of the present out.

VERY GOOD: Jennifer Coolidge doing the factor within the screencap up there the yr after she did this whereas taking the stage to current on the 2021 ceremony.


I like her very a lot. She’s the very best. Let’s simply invent a brand new awards present for the aim of giving her a trophy and letting her discuss so long as she desires.

LOSER: No matter precisely that is

Let’s go forward and file this one underneath “issues I might have finished with out in a telecast that actually put the winners on a clock whereas accepting their awards,” too. I’m glad the payments bought paid, I suppose. That’s so far as I’ll go together with that, although.

DRAW: Comedians with outrageous appears to be like


ON ONE HAND: Jerrod Carmichael accepted his Emmy for Rothaniel carrying a white fur coat with a series and nil shirts beneath it. That was… superior. Such an extremely excessive diploma of problem there, doubly so for doing all of it prefer it was only a regular factor to put on. Think about exhibiting as much as your job dressed like that for at some point. Think about any of the opposite nominees final evening carrying that. Think about Michael Keaton in that actual outfit accepting the primary award of the evening. Simply large. Good for him.



No, buddy.

Appears like he hopped out of a time machine straight from what, like, 1988 thinks the longer term appears to be like like.

I can not assist this. I say this as somebody who’s carrying khaki shorts a free t-shirt I bought at a giveaway at a bar over 10 years in the past. So… take my style opinions with many grains of salt.

WINNER: Squid Sport

Squid Game

The bizarre factor right here is that Squid Sport was each Netflix’s solely actual success of the evening and the one factor actually resembling a large common hit taking dwelling a handful of awards. It’s sort of the best-case situation for The Way forward for Tv or no matter, this concept {that a} international drama about wealth inequality that solely exists on the web can seize sufficient consideration to have it beat out massive costly American cable exhibits on the Emmys. That’s sort of cool if you consider it just a little.

Just a bit.

As a result of then we get into the entire Netflix of all of it.

Which we don’t need to get into.

So… let’s not.

LOSER: Jason Mantzoukas (sure, I’m nonetheless mad about it)

A couple of notes:

  • Jason Mantzoukas voiced Tommy Lee’s penis in Pam & Tommy
  • He was not nominated for doing so
  • I’ve been livid about this for over a month

I’m high-quality. It’s high-quality. I suppose we simply don’t honor greatness in tv anymore. However I’m high-quality.

WINNER: Kenan doing his little punches and kicks


God bless Kenan. I stand by what I mentioned many instances in regards to the bits and the songs and never needing them in any respect, however I did love this man strolling across the stage throughout his monologue and punctuating his jokes along with his little fist pumps and kicks. He’s man who has been doing this for a lot of, a few years and has not often, if ever, did not ship.

Say what you’ll in regards to the ceremony as an entire however go away Kenan alone. He’s doing the very best he can.

LOSER: Anybody who needed to take the stage after Lizzo


Lizzie took the stage in an enormous feathery purple costume and picked up her trophy and shouted out her crew of massive women approach up within the balcony and actually sort of jammed an adrenaline needle into the center of this entire factor for a minute or two. It was nice. I like seeing individuals appear like they’re legitimately having enjoyable on the market like this. I like seeing individuals shout out their crews within the low-cost seats. I like all of it, mainly.

I’d not love being the one who has to take the stage after her, although. Discuss an impossibly excessive bar to clear. You or I’ll by no means match this power. We might damage ourselves even making an attempt. Finest to play it protected and simply keep dwelling.

WINNER: Henry Winkler

Dude has been massively well-known for like 50 years now and appears to be simply delighted by the spectacle of all of it even right now.

What a wonderful man.
