On Sunday evening, after a year of virtual concerts and ceremonies, the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards honored and celebrated the year’s best talent in an in-person, live audience show in L. A.
With stars marking their glamorous red carpet appearances, celebrities including Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown), Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso) and Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You) and many more took home the biggest accolades of the night.
From empowering acceptance speech to beloved Schitt's Creek cast reunion, the star-studded night witnessed some of the best and memorable moments in the history of television and entertainment.
Here are some of the best and memorable moments of Emmy Awards 2021:
Schitt's Creek cast reunion
The Schitt's Creek family Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy and Annie Murphy left Schitt's Creek fans overjoyed with their hilarious reunion at Emmys 2021. Besides posing together in their best fashionable attire on the red carpet, the Emmy-winning foursome appeared on stage to present two awards as well.
Moreover, bringing the laughter dosage, Eugene pranked his Rose family by asking the Emmys 2021 comedy writers to keep the teleprompter blank. As expected, the crowd couldn't stop laughing at Schitt's Creek cast's witty antics.
Michaela Coel’s empowering speech
Michaela Coel used their acceptance speeches to platform the issues of sexual assault and women facing rights restrictions in places like Texas and Afghanistan.
The acclaimed TV series I May Destroy You creator, writer, co-director, co-executive producer and cast member Coel deservedly won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.
She used the platform to voice the issues of sexual assault and women facing rights restrictions in places like Texas and Afghanistan. It was Coel’s empowering acceptance speech that garnered her a deserved standing ovation. "Write the tale that scares you, that makes you feel uncertain, that isn't comfortable. I dare you — in a world that entices us to browse through the lives of others to help us better determine how we feel about ourselves, and to in turn feel the need to be constantly visible, for visibility these days seems to somehow equate to success — do not be afraid to disappear from it, from us for a while and see what comes to you in the silence. I dedicate this story to every single survivor of sexual assault," an overwhelmed Coel shared.
Ted Lasso, The Crown & The Queen's Gambit winning big
Amongst the big winners at Emmys 2021, Ted Lasso, The Crown and The Queen's Gambit were the recipient of the Big 3 - Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series.
