73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards: Deadline’s Full Coverage
Netflix bosses, including head of global TV Bela Bajaria, head of U.S./Canada scripted series Peter Friedlander and head of UK series Anne Mensah, talked about the “historic” night for the digital platform and streaming in general and also tackled the issue of diversity, as there were no wins last night for nominees of color.
“Last night was a historic night in many ways; tying the record with CBS’ 44 wins from 1974 when there were three networks was historic. The Crown sweeping all seven drama categories was historic. It was a historic night for streaming to win drama, comedy and limited awards,” said Bajaria.
