The 74th Emmy Awards aka Emmy Awards 2022 are done and dusted. The night saw some of the biggest and most-loved shows compete for TV’s most prestigious awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Monday night.  While Succession took home the ‘Best Drama’ award, the night saw some records being broken.

For the unversed, the Emmy is considered one of the four major American awards for performing arts and entertainment – EGOT. The others that make it are the Grammy – for music, the Oscar aka the Academy Award – for films, and the Tony – for stage theatre.

While The White Lotus won the most awards at Emmy Awards 2022 – 10, Zendaya-led Euphoria & South Korean hit drama Squid Game tied for second place with 6 wins each. Scroll below to know some of the records this year’s Emmys made and broke.
