Complete Winners List | How to Watch the Emmys

5:43 p.m The crazy (and stupid) thing about the Emmys is that once the voters decide they like a show, there are no half measures. So it conquers all. Moss-Bacharach was fantastic in the first season of “The Bear,” but James Marston was absolutely brilliant playing a heightened version of himself in “Jury Duty.” Spread the love, Emmys. The Academy Awards know how to do this. You should too. – G.W

5:42 p.m Now we've got the cast of “Martin” reunited — including Martin Lawrence and Disha Campbell — hinting that the popular '90s sitcom wasn't an Emmy favorite. – MB

5:38 p.m And they weren't going to reward Moss-Bachrach and Edebiri without saluting “The Bear” star Jeremy Allen White as the comedy lead. – G.W

5:37 p.m “Dead Lasso” hauled in the most Emmy nominations with 21. But did Ebonne Moss-Bachrach win for “The Bear”? Aha. “The Bear” is actually going to win the comedy series this year. Again: technically, this is for its first season, which premiered A year and a half ago. But its second season dropped when Emmy voters were considering this year's awards, and they were clearly impressed. – G.W

5:29 p.m Tom Wampskins was another hit. Never underestimate cornmeal from Hawktown! – MB

5:28 p.m Matthew Macfadyen won “Heir”. Now he won an Emmy Award for Supporting Actor in a Drama. Good thing he gave his real wife a shout out too. Continued the winning streak. – G.W

5:27 p.m “White Lotus'” Jennifer Coolidge, exclaiming “all the evil gays” while accepting the award for best actress, is why gays love her. – Tuberculosis

5:26 p.m Dr. Sitting in a surprisingly realistic replica of Melfi's office — props to the show's set designers — Anderson pays tribute to “The Sopranos,” which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and introduces Lorraine Bracco and Michael Imperioli. . My question is: Where is Eddie? – MB

5:25 p.m Anthony Anderson's mom should be at every award show moving forward. – G.W

5:22 p.m There's only one person capable of stopping an “Heir” sweep tonight, and that's the woman who plays a self-absorbed heiress who shoots her way out of trouble in a blaze of death-defying glory and then makes a perfectly comic pratfall. to her final resting place. RIP Tanya. Long live Jennifer Coolidge, winner of supporting actress for drama “The White Lotus.” – G.W

5:18 p.m Oh man, I loved Quinta Brunson's win for lead actress in a comedy for “Abbott Elementary.” That speech was … “the Carol Burnett of it all.” She didn't expect to be standing there. I wanted redemption … when in doubt, always “I love my mom, my dad…” – GW

5:13 p.m “The Bear”'s excellent second season ended with a glorious last shot of a glowing, checkered Edbury. This year is not the season for the Emmys. But I know that image is firmly embedded in the minds of voters. – G.W

5:12 p.m Christina Applegate gets a standing ovation as she takes the stage. The actor, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and uses a cane, joked, “The body is not Ozembical.” He presented Ayo Edebiri with the supporting actress in a comedy award — the first of many wins for “The Bear.” – MB

5:09 p.m If the low bar for an opening monologue is to leave the stage without the audience seriously hating you, Anthony Anderson succeeds. – G.W

5:08 p.m Five minutes into the show and Travis Barker is here for some reason, playing Phil Collins' famous drum break from “In the Air Tonight.” – MB

5:04 p.m Anthony Anderson and a choir sing “Good Times”. Good start. Thinking he was saving “The Jeffersons” theme. – G.W

4:59 p.m One more pre-show note: The first Emmy of the evening will be for Comedy Supporting Actress, which I had a hard time predicting. If Ayo Edebiri wins for “The Bear,” it will be the start of a big night for the show. – G.W

4:57 p.m Speaking of important people, my kids walk into the living room as I watch from the couch, and they have some opinions on red carpet style. (Juliet Lewis got two thumbs up for her disco-ready Moschino gown, and I got a lot of questions about Suki Waterhouse's look.) They're happy to see their favorite show, “Wednesday,” star Jenna Ortega, but keep asking why Taylor Swift isn't there. Great question, kids. – MB

4:38 p.m “Surprises” and “Emmies” aren't words usually used in the same sentence, but one can only hope so, Tracy. As for Meredith's point, I imagine the strikes will be mentioned a few times by the presenters and winners tonight, especially when the writing awards are presented. After all, the show's writers create a flurry of hosts. Do you think they are going to miss the opportunity to notice their own importance? – G.W

4:20 PM Hello from the Emmys press room, I've failed more than once trying to walk here from the parking lot in formalwear. I'm stationed in a hotel ballroom where the winners will be turned towards the end after accepting their awards and playing on stage. After a few photo ops and video interviews, the winners huddle elbow-to-elbow on a (very small) stage in the press room and take a few questions from reporters hunched over their laptops. I expect to see many faces from “Heir” in this room tonight, but Emmy voters may surprise us! – Tracy Brown

4:15 p.m Wow, 60 degrees. Glenn, be careful! Greetings from New York

Doubt aside, I I am I'm really looking forward to a few things tonight, including saying a final goodbye to my favorite toxic TV family, the Royces, after they left a hole in my heart that no show could ever fill. I'm excited to see who will finally become CEO — sorry, who will win a three-way race between Kieran Culkin, Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong.

“Heir” won't win every award tonight, and I'll be interested to see if “Beef” dominates the limited series category as you predicted.

But even without the delay, it's hard to deny the fact that these Emmys come at a deeply volatile moment in TV land, after twin strikes that drew attention amid painful disruptions from the streaming revolution and industry-wide layoffs. Let's see how that affects mood this evening.

Glenn, do you think the strikes will come in any acceptance speeches, or has everyone just decided to go with the flow? -Meredith Blake

4:11 PM The 2023 (even if it's 2024) Emmys are here — not a moment too soon. If the ceremony is delayed any longer, I don't know if I can still hold the scattered images of smiles left behind by all these long performances. (Sorry. I'm in the middle of a 992-page Barbra Streisand memoir.)

Usually, the Emmys are held in September and the red carpet feels like it's on fire. Tonight, LA is rocking. Temperatures may drop below 60 before the show begins. So I grabbed an extra blanket and enjoyed some Irish coffee in honor of Cillian Murphy, who was nominated for … wait, he's getting an Oscar, not an Emmy. The timing of this awards season is so confusing. (Maybe I'd better keep the whiskey.)

Tonight is going to see and celebrate all of our dear friends who have left “The Heir”. And we see if “The Bear” can take down “Dead Lasso.” What do you expect, Meredith? – Glen Whip
