Emmys 2022 full list of winners, and what we got wrong

The 74th Primetime Emmys have finally come to a close. With a whole bunch of expected winners and quite a few surprises across categories, here is a complete list of winners and where we went wrong with our predictions.

In case you missed our predictions, here’s all three parts of our Emmys 2022 predictions:

DRAMA: 

Outstanding Drama Series:

Succession

Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series

Squid Game, "Red Light, Green Light,"

Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series:

Succession, "All the Bells Say,"

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series:

Zendaya, Euphoria

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series:

Lee Jung-jae, Squid Game

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series:

Julia Garner, Ozark

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:

 Matthew Macfayden, Succession

Predicted: 5/7
What we got wrong: 

Despite Succession and Squid Game’s dominance across the board as frontrunners, we still expected Severance to not go home empty handed and Directing seemed the perfect category to award the series. It seems the TV Academy thought otherwise. 

Having won two consecutive Emmys for Supporting Actress, Julia Garner seemed to be an unlikely winner this year, with Succession’s Sarah Snook shaping to be the obvious choice. Third time’s the charm though according to the TV Academy. 

COMEDY:

Outstanding Comedy Series:

Ted Lasso

Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series:

Ted Lasso, "No Weddings and a Funeral,"

Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series:

Abbott Elementary, "Pilot,"

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:

Jean Smart, Hacks

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series:

Jason Sudeikis, Ted Lasso

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series:

Sheryl Lee Ralph, Abbott Elementary

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series:

Brett Goldstein, Ted Lasso

Predicted: 2/7
What we got wrong:

The comedy series predictions fell apart for us as the frontrunner Abbott Elementary seemed to have gone home having secured only a single win. 

Last year's winner, Ted Lasso, seemed to have plowed its way through the comedy nominations in similar fashion.

The only surprise (and that too not particularly unexpected) seemed to be Jean Smart winning Lead Actress over Quinta Brunson; a win that perhaps seemed justified as Brunson won for Writing instead. 

LIMITED:

Outstanding Limited series:

The White Lotus

Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series:

The White Lotus

Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series:

The White Lotus

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series:

Amanda Seyfried, The Dropout

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series:

Michael Keaton, Dopesick

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series:

Jennifer Coolidge, The White Lotus

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series:

Murray Bartlett, The White Lotus

Predicted: 7/7
What we got wrong:

One of the rare instances where we would rather have been wrong than have The White Lotus absolutely sweep the limited series category. Sigh.
