The 2021 Primetime Emmy Winners


Despite being tied with The Crown with 24 nominations, The Mandalorian came up short in the awards category along with runner-up nominee WandaVision.  Both The Mandalorian and WandaVision won all their awards during the Creative Arts ceremony which was held a week ago.  Neither The Mandalorian or WandaVision or any other superhero or geek show won the ‘big’ awards that were held during the CBS broadcast on Sunday night, Sep. 19.  The Mandalorian ended up with 7 Emmy wins while WandaVision has 3 Emmys which include 2 music categories.  WandaVision‘s “Breaking the Fourth Wall / Agatha All Along” won for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, and The Mandalorian won for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series.

In animation, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal won 2 Emmys for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation and Outstanding Animated Program.  Netflix’s Love, Death+Robots won for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program along with 5 other Emmys, 4 of which were pre-announced juried awards.  Maya Rudolph won the award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance as Connie the Hormone Monster from Big Mouth on Netflix.  For a complete list of the winners and nominees, The Emmys have setup an interactive page with all the categories.

The best parts of the evening were the impromptu moments when Conan O’Brien popped on the screen from the audience.  Sadly, O’Brien didn’t win any Emmys for the last season of his talk show, but it looked like he had the time of his life being the center of attention.  O’Brien made the entire Emmy audience give a standing ovation for the president of The Television Academy, and he also crashed Stephen Colbert on stage when Colbert won the award for Outstanding Live Variety Special.  The best moments are the unscripted ones.

EDITED: Corrected the number of Emmy wins for The Mandalorian.
