The 2021 Emmys took place on Sunday, with attendees joining from Los Angeles and London as the ceremony returned to an in-person format.

Only a limited amount of nominees were invited to attend, and all had to present proof that they were vaccinated against Covid – as well as negative tests – in order to gain access to the event.

Actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer was on hosting duties. Heading into the evening, The Crown and The Mandalorian were leading this year’s nominations.

During the ceremony, The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit and Ted Lasso won the evening’s top awards. Mare of Easttown also scored several high-profile wins, including Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie for Kate Winslet.

Here are the main talking points from the 2021 Emmy Awards:

Powerful women

Wonderful women stole the show at this year’s ceremony, from Kate Winslet’s speech about her detective in Mare of Easttown being a “middle-aged, imperfect, flawed mother who made us all feel validated”, to Michaela Coel dedicating her win to “every single survivor of sexual assault”. A big shout-out to Olivia Colman too, who we’re pretty sure got bleeped out for shouting “Michaela Coel, f*** yeah!” (or similar) in her own acceptance speech. (EH)

Covid concerns

The coronavirus pandemic, as it has become known to do, wormed its way into many speeches over the course of the night. Seth Rogen criticised the event’s perceived lack of Covid measures, calling it “insane”, while host Cedric the Entertainer joked that the vaccine did not lead to his testicles becoming swollen, in a reference to Nicki Minaj’s comments this week. Ewan McGregor and Kate Winslet, meanwhile, were among the winners to thank their shows’ crews for keeping them safe during filming. (EH)

All-white winners in major categories

Despite calls and efforts to get major awards shows to reward the work of actors of colour, white actors won all 12 major acting awards during Sunday’s ceremony. This applies to the lead and supporting actor and actress trophies in the Drama, Comedy, and Limited or Anthology Series or Movie categories. This despite the fact that – as reported by The Hollywood Reporter – performers of colour made up 44 per cent of this year’s nominees. (CM)

The Crown wins big

Netflix’s British royal saga was crowned Outstanding Drama Series in one of its many wins of the evening. With seven trophies, it emerged as the top programme of the 2021 Emmys. Many of its stars won acting awards, including a tearful Olivia Colman, a giggling Josh O’Connor, Tobias Menzies and Gillian Anderson. Its director Jessica Hobbs also triumphed, as well as creator Peter Morgan. (CM)

A great night for streamers

The Crown, a Netflix series, won Outstanding Drama Series, one of the evening’s top three awards. Outstanding Comedy Series went to Ted Lasso, an Apple TV+ programme, while The Queen’s Gambit, another Netflix show, won Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series. In other words: streamers ruled television’s biggest night, and the streaming wars aren’t going to ease off any time soon. (CM)

Hello, and welcome to The Independent’s Emmys 2021 live blog!

So, who is gonna win this year’s awards? You can find all of our predictions – as well as the ones we want to win – here

Sunday 19 September 2021 14:10 , Jacob Stolworthy

Tonight could see Michael K Williams win a posthumous Emmy for his supporting role in Lovecraft Country.

Sunday 19 September 2021 14:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

In case you’re wondering which network is leading the nominations tally, it’s HBO with 130.

They have just one more than Netflix, who could take home the Best Drama trophy for the first time thanks to The Crown.

Sunday 19 September 2021 14:55 , Jacob Stolworthy

Speaking of The Crown, it could sweep tonight if voters go for favourites Gillian Anderson (Margaret Thatcher), Emma Corrin (Princess Diana) and Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles).

Sunday 19 September 2021 15:25 , Jacob Stolworthy

WandaVision won at the Creative Emmys last week – and became the first Marvel TV show to do so. Could it win some trophies tonight?

Sunday 19 September 2021 15:55 , Jacob Stolworthy

A lot of people are also hoping Kate Winslet wins an award for Mare of Easttown.

Sunday 19 September 2021 16:25 , Jacob Stolworthy

Something to be worried about: The Underground Railroad – easily one of the year’s best tv shows – winning nothing.

Sunday 19 September 2021 17:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

A win for Pose star MJ Rodriguez, who is the first transgender woman to earn an Emmy nomination, would be a historical moment

Sunday 19 September 2021 17:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

Britain’s biggest chance at a win tonight comes via Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You.

Sunday 19 September 2021 18:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

However, it will face extremely stiff competition from The Queen’s Gambit, which swept up at last week’s creative Emmy Awards ceremony. It’s currently odds on favourite to win.

Sunday 19 September 2021 19:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

Here’s Anya Taylor Joy, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kathryn Hahn, Evan Peters and more at a pre-party alongside several other nominees last night.

Sunday 19 September 2021 19:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

Earlier this year, our very own Kevin E G Perry waxed lyrical about Jean Smart. He predicted she would win her fourth Emmy for Hacks back then. Will his prediction come true?

From Frasier’s crush to Mare’s mum: How Jean Smart became the new Queen of TV

Sunday 19 September 2021 20:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

It’s worth noting that Smart was also fantastic as Kate Winslet’s mum in Mare of Easttown – but it would be nice to see her co-star Julianne Nicholson (who has been amazing in everything for so long) get the recognition she is long overdue.

Sunday 19 September 2021 20:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

So, who will reign supreme in the battle of the Handmaid’s Tale cast? The Hulu series received EIGHT acting nominations – however, it looks like The Crown could snatch victory.

Sunday 19 September 2021 21:00 , Jacob Stolworthy

Similarly, Ted Lasso has seven acting nominations. As opposed to The Handmaid’s Tale, it looks like the Apple tV+ sitcom will emerge victorious. Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein and Hannah Waddingham all look set to take home trophies tonight.

Sunday 19 September 2021 21:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

It’s around this time we should probably point out that Emily in Paris – the critically-maligned Netflix show – somehow managed to get a nomination for Best Comedy Series...

It’s not long to go until the red carpet coverage begins! The excitement is building...

Sunday 19 September 2021 22:30 , Jacob Stolworthy

The ceremony tonight will be hosted by Cedric the Entertainer. Not all the nominees will be present due to Covid restrictions.

Sunday 19 September 2021 23:01 , Clemence Michallon

Good evening everyone! Clémence here taking over from Jacob. We’re two hours away from the start of the ceremony, meaning celebrities should start arriving on the red carpet.

And here are Olivia Colman, Gillian Anderson, and Josh O’Connor, who are all nominated for their performances in The Crown – respectively as Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher, and Prince Charles. O’Connor is in Los Angeles, while Colman and Anderson are in London.

O’Connor tells ET he’s the only member of the cast who was in the US (specifically in New York) ahead of the ceremony, which is why he was able to go to LA. He underwent “many” swabs to ensure he was negative for Covid.

01:31 , Clemence Michallon

Mare of Easttown just won another Emmy! Evan Peters wins for his work as Detective Colin Zabel. And I think he swore because part of his speech just got silenced on the US broadcast. Who could blame him?

In his acceptance speech, Peters thanks Kate Winslet “for being Kate Winslet!!” Indeed!
