Despite HBO being in a chaotic state of flux as of late, the premium cable channel dominated at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards — an evening packed with wins that were expected and a handful of speeches that were truly moving.

Mike White’s The White Lotus paved HBO’s way to dominance with a total of 10 wins at this year’s Emmys, including awards to White specifically for directing and limited-series supporting acting awards to Jennifer Coolidge and Murray Bartlett. While The White Lotus brought the statue for Outstanding Limited Series home for HBO and Succession won best drama, Euphoria’s second season emerged as a heavy hitter for the network with six wins, including a best actress in a drama award for Zendaya. Hacks also cleaned up with a respectable three wins, including a best actress in a comedy award for Jean Smart.

After an impressive 44 wins last year, Netflix settled for second place this time around with 26 Emmys total, most of which were thanks to obvious frontrunner Squid Game, which nabbed six statues including outstanding drama acting for Lee Jung-jae and outstanding drama direction for Hwang Dong-hyuk’s episode “Red Light, Green Light.” Though the Emmys’ voting academy isn’t always known to go up for genre productions, Stranger Things taking home five statues and Arcane taking home four were testaments to the impressions both series made. And, shocking very few people, Ted Lasso snagged three wins in the comedy category.
