Emmys 2021: 5 Most Expected Wins (& 5 Shocking Wins Nobody Saw Coming)

The Emmys 2021 nominations had diverse categories of shows. This year’s Emmy had different shows like WandaVision, The Queen’s Gambit, and The Crown. But this time, some award winners were so unexpected that everyone got a huge shock. However, on the other hand, some wins were expected by most.

Let’s take a look at some expected winners.

1. Jean Smart has been nominated for Emmys multiple times. But this time, Jean had two nominations, one for “Mare of Easttown” and the second for “Hacks.” Jean won the Emmy Award for her brilliant performance as Deborah Vance in the comedy series ‘Hacks.’

2. Since the news came out about Gillian Anderson playing the role of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in season 4 of the popular Netflix show “The Crown,” fans and critics were expecting that she’ll win the Emmy. And well, she did win to no one’s surprise. Gillian added another Emmy to her list of previous accomplishments.

3. The Queen’s Gambit was the overwhelming favorite to win Outstanding Limited Series or Anthology with nine nominations. The Queen’s Gambit ended up winning the top trophy, and the show was indeed a great success.

4. Ted Lasso, a feel-good sitcom, won three of the four acting awards, including one for lead star Jason Sudeikis. Both the co-stars, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein, also won Emmys for their supporting roles. In addition, the show lived up to critics’ and fans’ expectations and won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy.

5. Though RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 wasn’t the most loved, it still won the Emmy for Outstanding Competition Program for the fourth time in a row. RuPaul became the most-awarded person of color in Emmy’s history.

And now it’s time for the most shocking Emmys 2021 winners.

1. Olivia Colman won the Emmy for her outstanding performance as a lead actress in The Crown’s famous drama series. She played the role of Queen Elizabeth in the show. Not many people expected this win; still, Colman was successful in taking the Emmy Award home.

2. The Emmys never recognized Tobias Menzies; his fantastic performance in Outlander was also ignored. But this time, Tobias finally won the Emmy for his supporting role as Prince Philip in The Crown. Again, everyone in the audience was shocked, including some critics.
