Emmy Awards 2024: Love Takes Center Stage as ‘Succession’ and ‘The Bear’ Triumph

Los Angeles, CA – The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards took place on Monday, with HBO’s drama “Succession” and FX’s “The Bear” emerging as the top winners of the night. “Succession” won the award for best drama, while “The Bear” took home the prize for best comedy. Both shows secured six major awards each, cementing their status as some of the best television productions of the year.

However, amidst all the glitz and glamour, it was love that stole the spotlight at Fox’s delayed TV awards. During his acceptance speech for best actor, Kieran Culkin of “Succession” publicly expressed his desire for more children with his wife, Jazz Charton. On the other hand, the stars of “The Bear,” Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Matty Matheson, celebrated their comedy’s victory by sharing a heartfelt onstage kiss.

Beyond what viewers saw on television, the backstage moments at the Los Angeles’ Peacock Theater revealed the warmth and camaraderie among the Emmy attendees. Stars like Claire Danes and the cast of “Only Murders in the Building,” including Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, arrived early and bonded with each other. Gomez, accompanied by her boyfriend Benny Blanco, shared a high-profile moment with her co-stars before the show.

Meanwhile, outside the theater, festivities continued in the Emmy courtyard. Celebrities like Jenna Ortega enjoyed capturing memorable moments with a life-sized Emmy Award statue, while Ayo Edebiri of “The Bear” celebrated her best supporting actress win with her family, posing for pictures with her beaming parents.

In the theater lobbies, stars mingled and reveled in their victories. Late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert, accompanied by his Emmy-nominated writing staff, graciously posed for selfies with fans. Showing his spontaneous and friendly nature, Colbert even took the initiative to capture the photos himself.

Backstage, “The Bear” stars Matheson and Moss-Bachrach shared their thoughts on their widely talked-about onstage kiss. They described the moment as “nice” and admitted to being caught up in the whirlwind of emotions during the smooch.

Another standout moment came from Kieran Culkin, who humorously requested a third child from his wife during his acceptance speech. Reflecting on the incident, Culkin acknowledged that his public plea may have been rude and expressed regret for not discussing it privately with his wife.

As the night progressed, Emmy winners and guests gathered at the Los Angeles Convention Hall for the Governors Ball. “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who won his first Emmy for best talk show, celebrated with fellow winner Niecy Nash, capturing the special moment with a photograph.

Overall, the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards not only recognized outstanding television productions but also showcased the genuine camaraderie and joy shared among the industry’s finest.
