Emmy’s 2024: Stars walk ‘silver carpet’ as event gets underway
The annual celebration of the year’s best TV shows took place half a year after nominations were announced back in July.
The ceremony was originally scheduled for September but was pushed back due to the Hollywood writer and actor strikes that brought the industry to a standstill last year. As such, these awards honour shows that aired between 1 June 2022 and 31 May 2023, meaning it feels a bit like deja vu.
The show with the most nominations wss Succession, the fourth and final season of which aired on HBO last year. Fellow HBO dramas The Last of Us and The White Lotus were also heavily nominated, but failed to compete in terms of wins on the night.
Netflix’s limited series Beef and Hulu’s comedy The Bear also saw a raft of wins on the night.

Emmys 2024 sees Succession, Beef and The Bear share the vast majority of spoils
“It might be remembered as a three-way battle, but there was no real battle about it,” writes Louis Chilton. “HBO’s universally acclaimed drama Succession ended the night as the most prolific victor, winning a total of six awards in the drama categories, including Best Series, Best Actor (for Kieran Culkin), Best Actress (for Sarah Snook) and Best Supporting Actor (for Matthew Macfadyen).
“The comedy strand, meanwhile, was dominated by FX’s knife-edge culinary comedy The Bear, with Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach taking home three of the four acting prizes. And in the limited series field, it was Netflix’s tit-for-tat thriller Beef that won the night, garnering five wins.”

Stephen Colbert reveals that his wife saved his life after his appendix burst
The late-night host then elaborated on his ruptured appendix, and how McGee-Colbert stepped in to help. “First, appendix. And I was in a lot of pain. It was the last show before we took a break. And I went: ‘I’ll just go do the show anyway. I’m sure we’ll be fine.’ By the time the show’s over I had a 102.5 fever. I was in shock. I had blood poisoning,” he recalled.
Colbert then joked about the situation, offering a warning to viewers: “Don’t do it, kids. Don’t broadcast with blood poisoning!”

Winners list in full
That brings an end to the 2024 Emmy Awards (which were actually the 2023 Emmy Awards). I think it’s safe to say that Golden Globes host Jo Koy will be looking enviously at how smoothly that ceremony went. It was classy and ended with a clip of Martin Luther King Jr on his day of celebration, bravo.
Thanks for joining us here at The Independent where we’ll continue to bring you reactions from the show as my poor colleagues in the UK get some sleep.

While accepting the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, TV chef-turned-actor Matty Matheson was gripped by his co-star Ebon Moss-Bachrach who planted a huge snog on his lips.
The pair held in embrace for a good few seconds as the crowd cheered before finally parting. “I love you Ebon,” a dazed Matheson said after. He continued to thank restaurants in general and the hospitality industry.

Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook win for Succession
Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook rounded out a trio of acting wins for Succession following Matthew Macfadyen’s earlier in the night.
Beating out his cast mates Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong, Culkin gave the former a kiss on the mouth before making his way on stage. The funnyman was emotional and serious right until the end of his speech where he begged his wife for more children – “You said you’d think about it if I won!”

Daniel Radcliffe sparks marriage rumours
Daniel Radcliffe has sparked rumours that he and his longtime girlfriend Erin Darke have gotten married.
The 34-year-old actor spoke candidly about his family during an interview with Laverne Cox for E! News, while walking the red carpet. Radcliffe was nominated for his first-ever Emmy award for his role in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
Speaking to Cox, Radcliffe seemingly hinted that he and Darke – who he shares his nearly one-year-old son with – had tied the knot when he described his partner’s parents.
“Honestly, the people whose opinions I cared most about the movie were my in-laws,” he said, when discussing some of the feedback he received about Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. “They are huge Weird Al fans and they kind of got me into it. But they were very happy, thank God.”
