Surprise: WandaVision Is Snubbed at the Primetime Emmys 2021

WandaVision was always going to usher in a new TV era. It accidentally debuted as the first Marvel project on Disney+ and capitalized on this distinction, gripping viewers with its twisted sitcom week after week. Emmy voters took notice, giving WandaVision a towering 23 nominations at the Emmys 2021—the most for any limited series, including Mare of Easttown and The Queen’s Gambit, and the second most of any TV show this year, period. So…what happened?

Emmys 2021: The Winners Weren’t Surprising, but the Return of Fun Was

If I’m being honest, my metric for whether or not the 2021 Emmy Awards were going to be a success rested on whether or not Michaela Coel took home an award for her deeply affecting limited series, I May Destroy You. Up until the moment she did win—two hours and 20 minutes into the broadcast—it felt as if the Emmys were stuck in the cognitive dissonance between championing diversity and being unable to actually showcase it. Host Cedric the Entertainer and DJ Reggie Watts presented a suave, sleek event broken up with comedic bits that, heaven help me, actually made me laugh. Jason Alexander, Scott Bakula, and Alyson Hannigan did a faux roundtable out of never winning Emmys. The cast of Schitt’s Creek improv-ed their way through two category presentations. Jennifer Coolidge drawled sarcastic appreciation for the challenges men face in the industry. Host Cedric the Entertainer even talked some actual shit about the royal family, which created a fascinating array of facial expressions from the British performers. And it helped that Conan O’Brien, sitting at a nominees’ table, took it upon himself to make a bit out of the introduction to Debbie Allen’s governor’s award—and then ran onstage to “accept his award” during Stephen Colbert’s acceptance speech.

Emmys 2021: What You Didn’t See on TV

Quite a night to remember! The 2021 Emmy Awards brought out all the A-listers, but not all of the best moments made it to TV. Ted Lasso, The Crown and Mare of Easttown all won big during the Sunday, September 19, show — and all had one thing in common: The cast members were grateful for their costars.

Emmys 2021: The ‘Coffin Flop’ of Awards Shows

The Emmys are always the Fredo Corleone of the Hollywood award-show crime family — they want respect, but they’re lucky if they get a little pity and/or the occasional banana daiquiri. They always get overshadowed by their glitzier, glammier, drunker siblings. But even by Emmy standards, the 73rd annual event was a tedious mess. If the entertainment scale has “Bowen Yang’s shoes” at one end, and “Dr. Phil comedy sketch” at the other, this long, dark night of the gold went off the charts all the way into “The Queen’s Gambit director reads a speech twice as long as the...

Emmys 2021: How to watch and livestream this year’s ‘in-person’ show

The 2021 awards season enters its golden status zone on Sunday, Sept. 19, with the primetime Emmy Awards telecast. It’s the annual occasion when TV’s biggest stars and series battle it out — all while maintaining gracious on-camera smiles and courtesy claps, of course — to win the small screen’s most prestigious honor.

Seth Rogen Marvels at Emmys Tent: “There’s Way Too Many of Us in This Little Room”

The 2021 Emmys took great pains to be COVID-compliant, requiring attendees to be vaccinated and present negative test results, and the location for the awards show was even switched to the event deck at L.A. Live from its longtime venue of the Microsoft Theater in hopes the technically outdoor location would allow for better social distancing. But very little time was wasted in the telecast before the setting was addressed — and questioned. Seth Rogen, in presenting the first trophy of the evening for supporting actress in a comedy series, said, “There’s way too many of us in this little room....

The Emmys’ Opening Number Gave Us Drunk Karaoke at 2 a.m. Energy

Don’t get upset, it’s not a major disaster. There’s nothing on tonight, he said, I don’t know what’s the matter!. Nothing’s ever on, she said, so I don’t know why you bother. That’s a terrific song about the power of television (kudos if you know it by memory) that the...

Kate Winslet, Accepting ‘Mare Of Easttown’ Emmy, Shouts Out Nominees “In This Decade That Has To Be About Women Having Each Other’s Backs”

Kate Winslet added a second Emmy to her trophy shelf with Sunday’s Outstanding Actress in a Limited Series win for HBO’s Mare of Easttown.  The Oscar winner, by all arguable accounts, disappeared into the role of the wise, patient, vaping, local Delco County small-town Detective Mare Sheehan, funky accent and all — a woman who was connected all too well, family wise et al, to the murder suspects in her town. The slow burn drama series mushroomed in its weekly viewership on HBO and HBO Max; the series finale notching a linear and digital record with 4 million viewers over Memorial...

Here’s Exclusive Footage of Jennifer Coolidge Accepting Her White Lotus Emmy Next Year

Woo-hoo! Jennifer Coolidge, grande dame of life, presented this year’s Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series while wearing one of the most fabulous capes we’ve ever laid eyes on. At least, she allegedly presented an award, as the audience gave her a standing ovation for about a minute before she talked about something that wasn’t, sadly, the time she tried to scatter her mother’s ashes in The White Lotus. “I want you all to know, nominees, that you’ve overcome the incredible handicap in this business of being men,” Coolidge remarked. “Bravo, gentlemen, wherever you are.” Consider this her practice run for next year’s inevitable win. Byeeeeee.
