Host Kenan Thompson began the night by dancing, then the event continued with emotion from Sheryl Lee Ralph singing and Lizzo in tears and Jennifer Coolidge dancing herself off stage. “Ted Lasso” and “Succession” came into the ceremony leading the pack with 25 and 20 nominations, respectively, and earned multiple wins alongside “The White Lotus,” “Squid Game” and “Abbott Elementary.”
