Netflix had a triumphant night at the 75th Annual Primetime Emmy® Awards on January 15th, securing an impressive six wins, with the standout being “BEEF.” The limited series not only claimed the coveted Outstanding Limited Series award but also earned seven additional Emmys, bringing its total to eight wins.

One of the most historic moments of the evening belonged to Ali Wong, who made history as the first Asian-American actress to win Outstanding Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. Her groundbreaking victory marked a significant milestone for Asian representation in the entertainment industry. Wong’s win was also notable as the first time a woman of Asian descent received an Emmy for a lead role.

“BEEF” continued its winning streak with Steven Yeun clinching the Outstanding Lead Actor award, and Lee Sung Jin securing both Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Writing honors for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. The series’ compelling narrative, exemplified by the episode “The Birds Don’t Sing, They Screech in Pain,” captivated both audiences and Emmy voters alike.

Niecy Nash-Betts added to Netflix’s triumph by winning Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role in “DAHMER-Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” in the Limited Series or TV Movie category. Her stellar performance contributed to the series’ success.

Meanwhile, the popular series “Queer Eye” continued to make history, extending its record-breaking streak in the Outstanding Structured Program category. Winning for the sixth consecutive year, the show solidified its status as an Emmy favorite, having garnered a total of 11 Emmys.

In total, Netflix amassed an impressive 22 wins out of 103 nominations, showcasing the streaming giant’s commitment to delivering high-quality content across various genres. The list of Netflix winners included accolades for outstanding casting, costumes, makeup, hairstyling, production design, and more.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards on January 7th set the stage for “Queer Eye’s” continued success, foreshadowing the platform’s dominance at the main event. The outstanding achievements in categories such as casting (“BEEF”), costumes (“Wednesday’s Child is Full of Woe”), and makeup (“Wednesday”) underscored Netflix’s dedication to excellence in production.

As the night concluded, Netflix celebrated the accomplishments of its talented creators, actors, and production teams. The diverse array of awards, ranging from lead acting to animation, highlighted the platform’s ability to captivate audiences with compelling and varied content.
