Want to know who some of the big winners are during the 2022 Emmy Awards? Rest assured, we’re going to have coverage and analysis throughout the night!
Go ahead and consider this article your one-stop shop for everything associated with TV’s biggest night and some of the winners, but also remember along the way to update this page. We will be adding more to it as the night goes on. This is an interesting night given that there are favorites like Squid Game and Abbott Elementary, but we wouldn’t say that any show is considered to be a consensus to clean up with all the awards. There’s an element of unpredictability here that should be exciting.
The winners will be announced on this page in the order in which they are revealed on the show, just in case there is any confusion.
Limited Series Actor – Michael Keaton, Dopesick. He was probably one of the big runaway favorites tonight, so we’re not going to sit here and act even remotely surprised. It’s well-deserved!
Limited Series Supporting Actor – Murray Bartlett, The White Lotus. This was such a fabulous role and to us, this win is a total delight.
Drama Supporting Actor – Matthew Macfadyen, Succession. This was a well deserved win given the strength of the Tom character throughout season 3.
Drama Supporting Actress – Julia Garner, Ozark. We’ve never been all about Ozark in the way that some other people have, but no doubt Garner was fantastic. Our vote personally would’ve went to Rhea Seehorn.
Comedy Supporting Actress – Sheryl Lee Ralph, Abbott Elementary. You can head over here to see more of what we had to say here; it may be the best speech of the night.
Comedy Supporting Actor – Brett Goldstein, Ted Lasso. Love him. Roy Kent’s one of our favorite characters. Even still, we would’ve honored Nick Mohammed here.
Variety Sketch Show – Saturday Night Live. It’s true that they could win this award every year.
Variety Talk Show – Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Once again, he could win every year.
Limited Series Supporting Actress – Jennifer Coolidge, The White Lotus. First and foremost, her speech was hilarious — and also was really deserved from start to finish.
Limited Series Actress – Amanda Seyfried, The Dropout. She was fantastic on this show, and it’s another reminder of why Hulu put so effort into cultivating limited series.
Reality Competition Show – Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls. Honestly the biggest shock of the night, since it felt like RuPaul’s Drag Race had this on lock.
Comedy Lead Actor – Jason Sudeikis, Ted Lasso. Before he got up on stage he hugged the other nominees — wasn’t that sweet? We honestly didn’t think that he would get it again!
Drama Lead Actress – Zendaya, Euphoria. What a stellar performance and a fantastic speech. Like with Sudeikis, we weren’t quite sure that she would win again!
Comedy Actress – Jean Smart, Hacks. Another weird upset-of-sorts. Given Quinta Brunson won a separate award for Abbott Elementary, we thought that she would get it here.
Drama Lead Actor – Lee Jung-jae, Squid Game. Now this is a shock! Lee was fantastic, but given who he was up against, we didn’t think that he’d be able to pull this off.
Limited Series / Anthology – The White Lotus. Mike White also won for both writing and directing this show.
Comedy Series – Ted Lasso. There were a LOT of contenders this year, but we can’t complain since this show was SO outstanding in season 2.
Drama Series – Succession. What a strange night this was! There were actually a number of surprises, but only in that we didn’t expect as many repeats. We honestly thought that it was going to be Squid Game after the Best Actor category.
