Winners for the rest of the awards can be found here.


It was a good night for Ted Lasso, The Queen’s Gambit, The Crown, Hacks, and The Mare of Easttown. In fact, no other show won any of the major awards. Really, no surprises either besides maybe Hacks. This is the first I’m hearing of the show, but it picked up quite a few awards in the Comedy categories, so maybe it’s time we check Hacks out.
