Netflix sits on Emmys throne with The Crown

📺 ON THE TUBE TONIGHT-

(all times CLT)

Netflix sits on Emmys throne: Netflix took home major awards in drama and limited series, with the streaming giant nabbing a total of 44 wins. Netflix's The Crown, which depicts the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, was honored as best drama, with the show’s fourth season taking a total of 11 Emmy awards, including all four acting honors being snapped up by its cast: Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor, Gillian Anderson and Tobias Menzies. The gripping and bittersweet fourth season draws heavily on the maddening saga of Princess Diana and Charles, while portraying Queen Elizabeth in a more critical light. With all its shameless glory, season 4 is definitely the most successful yet — brimming with superb acting, writing and overall production standards.

Meanwhile, Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit took the most wins for a miniseries for the year, also receiving a total of 11 awards. The chess drama starring Anya Taylor-Joy won the coveted best limited series award.

Other notable winners: Ted Lasso won outstanding comedy series, with lead actor Jason Sudeikis winning outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. Meanwhile, Mare of Easttown took three acting awards for a limited series or TV movie, with Kate Winslet winning the outstanding lead actress award.

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-

A Calling for Charlie Barnes by Joshua Ferria, follows the protagonist who is known for his trail of bankruptcies and is obsessed with becoming a self-made mn’aire. But against all odds, he still believes in himself. Fast forward until he’s in his late 60’s, he has a strained relationship with his kids, a failed marriage, and a few failed business ventures on his sleeve. The narrator of Charlie’s story is his son Jake, who we see more and more of in the narration, until he presents us with a shocking final act. The book extends beyond the illusion of the so-called American dream to portray the actual cost it has on one’s self.
