HBO's "Succession," the wickedly juicy tale of a fractious media family, was named best drama series, while Jeremy Strong won best actor for his role as a downtrodden son. 

“Schitt's Creek” won nine prizes - breaking the Emmys record for most wins in a single season for a comedy. They include best comedy series and acting awards for Canadian stars Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, his son Daniel Levy, and Annie Murphy.

The HBO series also won prizes in the drama categories for best writing and best directing during the virtual ceremony.

Another HBO series, “Watchmen”, won best limited series, as well as acting gongs for its stars Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

“Watchmen” was the night’s biggest winner with a total of 11 Emmys, including technical awards handed out last week. HBO was the biggest overall winner, with 30 Emmys, followed by Netflix with 21.
