The ceremony was hosted by Kenan Thompson and going into the night, HBO's Succession was the biggest contender with a whopping 25 nominations for the comedy drama's third season. It took home the coveted Outstanding Drama Series award, with Matthew Macfadyen winning the Supporting Actor category.

Meanwhile, Ted Lasso, The White Lotus and Hacks all came into the night looking for a big sweep, as did Only Murders in the Building, Euphoria and Dopesick, all of which had over 10 nominations to their name.

In the end, the White Lotus won five awards, including Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for Jennifer Coolidge, whose speech was unsurprisingly hilarious.

Severance, Squid Game, Ozark, Stranger Things, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and Pam and Tommy all similarly had double digit nominations, meaning there were plenty of contenders to take home a stack of trophies.

Zendaya won Lead Actress in a Drama series for her role as Rue in Euphoria, while Lee Jung-jae took home the Lead Actor in a Drama series award for Squid Game.

Meanwhile, when it comes to comedy, Ted Lasso scored some big wins, taking home Outstanding Comedy Series, Lead Actor and Supporting Actor.

Other winners included Sheryl Lee Ralph, who won Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Abbott Elementary, and Amanda Syefried, who came out on top of the Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category.

Meanwhile, in the reality and variety categories, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver won big.
