After an 18-year streak of holding the title of the most-nominated outlet, HBO was dethroned by Netflix at last night’s 73rd Emmy Awards. With 44 wins, Netflix swept the floor as “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit” both tied for the most awarded shows.

With their memorable characters and suspenseful plots, these Netflix dramas are some of the most binge-worthy series on the streaming giant. It’s clear the Television Academy agrees, as “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit” racked up an impressive 11 wins.

“The Crown” dominated the drama acting categories, winning awards for Outstanding Drama Series, and key members of the cast triumphed subcategories:

  • Olivia Colman, Outstanding Lead Actress
  • Josh O’Connor, Outstanding Lead Actor
  • Gillian Anderson, Outstanding Supporting Actress
  • Tobias Menzies, Outstanding Supporting Actor

“The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit” weren’t the only key players in Netflix’s domination, as shows like “Love, Death & Robots” held six wins, “Bo Burnham: Inside” nabbed three wins, and “The Social Dilemma” received two wins along with ten other popular series.
