    In the comedy category, there have been several consecutive awards, including best drama "Football Coach", best actor winner Jason Sudeikis ("Football Coach"), best actress winner Jane Smart ("Desperate Writer") and Best Supporting Actor winner Bot Goldsteen ("Football Coach") are all the same as last year. Happily, Shirley Lee Ralph won the Best Supporting Actress award for "Elementary School", her first Emmy nomination at the age of 65, and her first win, of course.

    Among the limited series/anthology/TV movie awards, the biggest winner this year is undoubtedly "White Lotus Resort", which won five awards for best drama, best supporting actor and actress, best screenwriter and director. The best actor and actress awards went to Amanda Seyfried ("The Dropout") and Michael Keaton ("The Dose of Addiction") respectively.

    From the perspective of the producer, Warner Bros. Discovery Group, which owns many media organizations such as HBO, HBO Max, TBS, CNN, etc., leads this year's Emmy Awards with 40 awards. Streaming leader Netflix won 26 awards, Disney Group, which owns Disney+ and Hulu, won 19 awards, Apple won 9 awards for "Football Coach" and other awards, and Amazon won 7 awards.

    This year's Emmys were hosted by "Saturday Night Live" regular Kenan Thompson. He's on fire, showing all his comedian sting, from Netflix's stock price to the age of Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend. For example, referring to Zendaya, he said: "26 is an odd age in Hollywood, young enough to be a high school student, but too old to date Leonardo DiCaprio." "Girl, you're brave," said Regina Hall, host of this year's Academy Awards, alluding to Will Smith's take on Chris Rock. Later, his "Saturday Night Live" partner, Bowen Yang, appeared to show attendees that he was actually the back-up host for the ceremony. Thompson asked him what could go wrong with hosting the Emmys, and Yang Bowen asked back, "Have you not watched this year's Oscars?"
