The Crown rules supreme at the Emmy Awards with best drama victory as cast wins big

The Crown ruled supreme at the 2021 Emmy Awards with the Netflix drama winning Outstanding Drama Series and Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor, Gillian Anderson and Tobias Menzies all nabbing trophies. 

The fan favorite show was the night’s biggest winner, with seven awards including a sweep of the dramatic acting categories. 

The series beat out The Boys, Bridgerton, The Handmaid’s Tale, Lovecraft Country, The Mandalorian, Pose, and This Is Us for the accolade. The trophy also gave Netflix its first win in the most elite of Emmy categories. 

The Crown won for its fourth season, which followed the British royal family in the 1980s and 1990s with Olivia as Queen Elizabeth II, Josh as Prince Charles and Emma as Princess Diana.

A shocked Olivia delivered an emotional acceptance speech reflecting on her late father as she received the honor virtually from London.

‘I’d put money on that not happening. I want to say thank very much for this, this is amazing. And what a lovely end to the most extraordinary journey with this lovely family.  

‘I loved every second of it and I can’t wait to see what happens next. And I am going to be very quick, ’cause I’m very teary as I wish my dad was here to see this. I lost my daddy during COVID and he would have loved all this.’

Emma Corrin was also nominated for the same award, but looked delighted for her costar as she applauded enthusiastically once Olivia’s name was announced.

‘But I really want to dedicate this award to a woman who was my manager for 20 years, Connie Freiberg, who believed in me when no one else would and believed I had talent when I didn’t even think that I had talent; who always advised me to take the high road; who was one of the best friends that I’ve ever had in my life and who wore the same dress five years running to every award show three times a year that we went to. 

Josh described how fulfilling filming the show had been as he thanked his co-star Emma Corrin, his girlfriend, and family in his speech. 

‘Making The Crown has been the most rewarding two years of my life, and the cast and crew, Peter Morgan, our producers and all the brilliant directors who made the show such a pleasure to be a part of, thank you,’ he said.

‘Emma Corrin, you’re a force of nature,’ the actor continued. ‘I love you very much.’
