2021 Primetime Emmy Awards: The Complete Winners List

Cedric the Entertainer hosts Sunday's in-person Emmys ceremony.

Television was the only thing that got us through the last year spent stuck in our homes. Which has also led to some seriously stiff competition at Sunday's 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards.

The Mandalorian and The Crown led this year's history-making nominations, which saw Ted Lasso break the record for most-nominated freshman comedy and Mj Rodriguez become the first-ever transgender actor nominated for a major Emmy award. The 2021 ceremony also marks the first time the Variety Special categories have been announced in primetime.

Winners will be announced during the Cedric the Entertainer-hosted telecast, airing live on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ from the Event Deck at L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles. (Non-Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out over three preceding Creative Arts ceremonies.)
