Emmys 2021 LIVE – Watch Cedric The Entertainer host as Ted Lasso sweeps awards over The Crown & The Mandalorian


THE Emmy Awards are back, with Ted Lasso stars sweeping the early categories of the night.

The Emmys red carpet kicked off on Sunday at 6pm ET, with the ceremony that began at 8pm ET.

The Apple Plus show beat out The Queen’s Gambit and other critically acclaimed series for several nominations.

Streaming services are poised for a triumphant night that will cast further shade on the status of broadcast networks, including the big three ABC, CBS and NBC, and once-dominant cable channels such as HBO and Showtime.

This year, about 500 nominees and guests will gather under a glammed-up tent in downtown L.A., with COVID-19 precautions including a vaccine requirement and testing.

There are big names among the presenters, including Angela Bassett, Michael Douglas, Dolly Parton, and Awkwafina, but at least one star, Jennifer Aniston, was candid about staying away because of virus concerns.
