Hosted by comedian, Kenan Thompson, the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards honoured the best TV shows and performances from the past year. In his hilarious and memorable opening act, Kenan paid tribute to iconic shows such as Friends, Game of Thrones and Law & Order SVU.

It was a night of firsts as Squid Game became the first non-English language Emmy winner, Zendaya made history as the youngest two-time winner, and Lizzo won her first Emmy for her reality show Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

Taking home the big awards was Succession, which won Best Drama Series, as well as Best Supporting Actor for Matthew Macfadyen. Euphoria won six trophies, including Best Actress in a Drama Series for Zendaya, and The White Lotus won five awards, with cast members Murray Bartlett and Jennifer Coolidge winning Best Supporting Actress and Actor in a Limited Series. What a night!
