Netflix sweeps the 2021 Emmys, certifying together with Apple TV + and HBO the paradigm shift in television

Netflix with ‘The Crown’ and ‘Lady’s Gambit’ and Apple TV + with ‘Ted Lasso’, in the first great triumph of its still short history, make it definitely clear that things have definitely changed on television. Platforms streaming They have not only become an overwhelming force from the viewpoint of viewership and subscription numbers, but powerhouses to be reckoned with from a creative standpoint.

Without a doubt the great winner of the night was ‘The Crown’, which monopolized a good amount of main awards: best drama, best direction, best script and full cast, with four awards for actors major and minor. The quality of the series was already recognized in the last Golden Globes, where among other awards, the cast won three awards (of no less than 11 that monopolized the platform). Netflix has rounded off the night with ‘Lady’s Gambit’, which despite not taking practically no nominations of the many it had, has been recognized with the well-deserved Best Director of a Limited Series.

Equally significant has been the recognition for ‘Ted Lasso’, the star series of Apple TV +, especially for the youth of the platform. The comedy took home the lead and supporting actor awards, as well as the Best Comedy award. Quite a triumph for a series that has been winning over an audience without great publicity, only for the extraordinary quality of its production.

The rest of the comedy awards were taken by an unknown series in Spain, from a platform that is yet to come: ‘Hacks’, by HBO Max (so we will possibly see it very shortly), and that tells the twilight years from a famous stand-up comic. Its protagonist, the veteran Jean Smart (owner of four Emmy Awards), took the statuette, which was joined by Best Screenplay and Best Direction.

The last big winner of the night was ‘Mare of Eastown’, which is currently being broadcast in Spain by HBO. It was its cast that grabbed a good number of awards in the Limited Series categories (snatching them from the other great favorite in the category, ‘Lady’s Gambit’): of course its protagonist Kate Winslet, but also the secondary Julianne Nicholson and Evan Peters.

The final count of big winners, with an absolute predominance of streaming over traditional channels (although it must be taken into account that in the United States, HBO is still cable), is 10 Emmy for Netflix, 4 for Apple TV + 7 for HBO, which are divided into 4 for traditional HBO and 3 for HBO Max. All in one night that through limited presence tried to return to normality in the television show. Show that, paradoxically, is confirmed as part of a medium that has changed forever.
