The first batch of series awards at this year's Emmys have been taken. Sunday's Creative Arts Emmys saw awards in seemingly insignificant categories, from guest starring to editing and sound. Striking: Whether "Succession", "Squid Game" or "Ted Lasso" - none of the highly traded series was able to set itself apart from the competition with a rain of awards.
A sign for the Primetime Emmys on September 13, where the "royal categories" will be awarded: Probably no series will come out of the Emmys 2022 as a clear winner.
The South Korean Netflix series beat "Succession" in several categories. "Squid Game" won four Creative Arts Emmys. Next week, the smash hit could pull off the feat of becoming the first non-English language series to win Best Drama at the Primetime Emmys.
Only two drama series were more successful than "Squid Game". "Stranger Things" won five times, including for makeup and special effects. "Euphoria" also won five prizes.
The most successful comedy series of the evening was "White Lotus". The hotel satire, like "Stranger Things" and "Euphoria," won five Emmys. The award ceremony was disappointing for "Ted Lasso". The football comedy, which was nominated 20 times, went empty on Sunday, despite eight suggestions.
