The Emmys proved that Hollywood award shows are nothing if not largely predictable: Monday night’s ceremony saw “Succession” (HBO) and “Ted Lasso” (Apple TV Plus) take home the trophies for best drama and comedy series — both series second-time winners in their respective categories.

Best-limited-series winner “The White Lotus” (HBO) led the night overall with five Emmy Awards, followed closely by “Lasso” with four. There were plenty of repeat wins: “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” won best variety talk series for the seventh year in a row; Julia Garner picked up her third supporting dramatic actress prize for “Ozark”; Brett Goldstein became a two-time comedic supporting actor winner for “Ted Lasso,” as did Jason Sudeikis for lead actor; Jean Smart (“Hacks”) and Zendaya (“Euphoria”) each won lead actress for their shows for the second time.
