Two heavyweights shared the honors of the Emmy Awards on Monday: HBO giant “Succession” was voted Best Drama Series, while South Korean series “Squid Game” made competition history with a Best Actor award for its lead performer, Lee Jung-jae. Playing on the title of his show, “Succession” creator Jesse Armstrong noted that it was a “holy week” for the dynasties, alluding to the death of Queen Elizabeth II of England and her son’s arrival on the throne.

“Obviously, there were a few more votes for our rise (to the throne) than for Prince Charles,” he joked. Already awarded the major trophy in 2020, this black and jarring chronicle of a powerful family struggling to take control of a media empire (strangely resembling that of billionaire Rupert Murdoch) has also won three more awards this year. in particular for his screenplay and that of the best supporting role, awarded to Matthew Macfadyen.

Despite its 25 nominations, the American program has had to share the spotlight with the South Korean phenomenon “Squid Game”, a dark and violent denunciation of the excesses of capitalism, in which destitute people kill each other in cruel children’s games in the hope of win millions.

Produced by Netflix, this worldwide hit won six awards, and in particular wrote a new page in the history of the Emmy Awards, equivalent to the Oscars of American television, thanks to the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series awarded to its main protagonist, Lee Jung-jae.

A novelty for an interpreter who plays in a language other than English. The series thus confirms the growing success of South Korean cinema in Hollywood: in 2020 “Parasite” by director Bong Joon-ho won the Oscar for best film. Awarded for his success, the mastermind behind “Squid Game”, Hwang Dong-hyuk was highly honored.

“I don’t think I wrote a page of history myself, because it was you who opened the doors to + Squid Game +,” the director launched.

“We made history together and I really hope + Squid Game + won’t be the last Korean series at the Emmys.”

In the drama genre, actress Zendaya cemented her status as Hollywood’s new darling, winning Best Actress for her role as a teen drug addict in HBO’s ‘Euphoria’, as of 2020. The hilarious series ‘Ted Lasso’ ( Apple TV +) also returned as Best Comedy of the Year, following his victory in 2021. Jason Sudeikis, who plays a parachuted American football coach on an English football team, also won the Emmy for Best Actor in a Comedy .

Among the miniseries, “The White Lotus”, which tackles the ambient hypocrisy of a Hawaiian luxury hotel, dominated the evening with 10 awards, including the best production of the genre – which brings together the series from a single season. Michael Keaton, for his part, was awarded the Emmy for Best Actor in this category for his role in “Dopesick,” a miniseries that examines the murderous US addiction to opioids.

Away from Will Smith’s sudden slap in the face of presenter Chris Rock during the latest Oscars, the Emmys’ return to the theater (the first since the pandemic), led by comedian Kenan Thompson, came without any major surprises.
