The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards were held in Tinseltown in the early hours of this morning (Monday 20 September) and were as predictable as a yawn.

There were no surprises on the winners' list which was dominated by The Crown as per usual and the overrated Mare of Easstown, which delivered the Most Contrived Finale of the year. 

It didn't win Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series thankfully - lost to The Queen's Gambit - but the cast cleaned up the Supporting and Lead Actress awards in the category.

Overall The Crown and The Queen's Gambit won the most Emmys this year with a total of 11 each when you tally the Creative and Primetime ceremonies.
