This list will be updated LIVE starting at 5PM PT/ 8PM ET on Sunday, September 19th

The 73rd Primetime Emmys are arriving on the heels of a year where global circumstances have resulted in an influx of small-screen content consumption from all around the world. In the midst of what many have been calling the “Golden Age of Television” with an impressive variety of shows that have impacted pop culture, 2021 is one of the most important yet. The big night is finally here, and everyone is eager to see if their favorite shows will walk away as major Emmy winners.

Ted Lasso, WandaVision, The Crown, Mare of Easttown, and The Queen’s Gambit, this year’s competition is unparalleled in variety. As such, tonight’s winners could go on to set a new pace for the next Emmy seasons to come. Will mainstream appeal be strong enough to place hit shows like WandaVision high on the Emmy winners list? Can late season buzz do the same for serious threats like Mare of Easttown? Will any wild cards be able to upset The Crown and Ted Lasso‘s respective category dominance? It’s time to find out.

See all of the 73rd Primetime Emmy winners below, with some notable additions from the Creative Arts Emmys also included! You can also find the final winners for the 2021 OscarsGolden GlobesCritics Choice AwardsSAG AwardsBAFTAs, MTV Awards, and HCA TV Awards right here on DiscussingFilm.
