Alex Edelman hosted the event, which handed out awards to 13 stars of the TV season picked by IndieWire’s staff. At the awards ceremony at Citizen News in Hollywood, there was a cocktail party vibe that allowed guests to mingle, celebrate each other’s work, and even sneak a glance at honoree and all-around icon Carol Burnett, who accepted the Vanguard Award for her performance on Apple TV+’s “Palm Royale.”

Dakota Fanning received the Performance Award for her stellar work in Netflix’s “Ripley.” Lulu Wang brought home the Crossover Award for her moving, thought-provoking work on “Expats,” while “Scott Pilgrim Takes Off’s” Bryan Lee O’Malley accepted the Spark Award (awarded also to BenDavid Grabinski) for the duo’s sharp animation. Other honorees included Breakthrough Award winner Francesca Sloane for Prime Video’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” Wavelength Award winners Matt Bomer and Ron Nyswaner for Showtime’s “Fellow Travelers,” Auteur Award winner Issa López for HBO’s “True Detective: Night Country,” and Maverick Award recipient Riley Keough for Hulu’s “Under the Bridge.” Quinta Brunson accepted the Visionary Award for her work on “Abbott Elementary,” and Magnify Award recipient Fisher Stevens showed what great access can do with his work directing Netflix docuseries “Beckham.” Then Innovation Award winner John Mulaney made everyone laugh — hard — while accepting for his Netflix talk series “Everybody’s in LA.”
