Emmys: Ewan McGregor & Tobias Menzies’ Wins, ‘Hacks’ Sweep & ‘WandaVision’ Shutout Among Top Surprises
While the top series categories awarded on the main Emmy telecast all went to the projected overwhelming favorites, The Crown (drama series), Ted Lasso (comedy series), The Queen’s Gambit (limited series) and RuPaul’s Drag Race (reality competition series), there were also a few surprises along the way Sunday.

Ewan McGregor was an unexpected winner for Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for the titular role in Netflix’s Halston. He beat out WandaVision‘s Paul Bettany and The Undoing‘s Hugh Grant, who had been considered frontrunners, as well as Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom Jr.

The Crown actor Tobias Menzies’ win for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series was a surprise to most everyone, including possibly to the actor himself, who channeled fellow Brit Anthony Hopkins’ no-show at the Oscars this year by not making it to the Emmy telecast’s Los Angeles or London locations.
