2022 Emmy Awards winners list

The 74th Annual Emmy Awards aired Monday night on NBC and Peacock

The biggest night in television is here. Hosted by Kenan Thompson, the “74th Emmy Awards” airs Monday night on NBC and Peacock, honoring the best television had to offer in the 2021-2022 season.

From shows like ABC’s hit freshman series, “Abbott Elementary,” to returning shows like “Insecure” on HBO and “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” this year’s Emmy shined a particular light on all of the Black comedies television gave audiences this year. “Abbott Elementary,” from the mind of nominee Quinta Brunson, earned seven nominations, while “Insecure” gave Issa Rae one more shot at earning the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series award.

One of the biggest moments of the night belonged to Sheryl Lee Ralph, who brought the house down with her speech after winning Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. With her win, Ralph made history as the second Black actress to ever take home the trophy in this category (the first went to Jackee Harry in 1987 for her role in “227.”)

Lizzo also took home a major award for her reality competition series, “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.” The Prime Video series followed the singer on her quest to find dancers for her tour and featured dancers of all shapes and sizes not always seen in the media.
