LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Lavish royal series “The Crown” is expected to reign at television’s second pandemic era Emmy Awards on Sunday on what could be a big night for British talent.
The comedy “Ted Lasso,” which is about an American soccer coach, will be winning multiple Emmy Awards. Its mostly British cast won hearts through its optimism and sweet treats.
Tom O’Neil founder of Goldderby.com, said that “we don’t only have front runners this season, but we have runaway winners in most of the races.”
Cedric The Entertainer will host. Because of Delta-related concerns, Emmys are now held in an outdoor tent. This is to make vaccinations, testing, and the wearing masks compulsory.
Live broadcast of the Emmys will begin at 8 PM ET on CBS TV.
The Crown will likely win the Emmy for drama series best, along with trophies to Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Coleman), Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), young Princess Diana (newcomer Emma Corrin), and Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson).
Gerrad Hall, Entertainment Weekly’s senior TV editor said Corrin “really gave and embodied everything people still love today about Diana.”
Netflix’s best drama series victory for “The Crown”, while Apple TV+ (NASDAQ::) would be able to enter the streaming market with its comedy series win for Ted Lasso.

Limited series is the closest competition on Sunday. It produced a variety of contenders, including Kate Winslet as Kate Winslet’s downtrodden Detective in “Mare of Easttown” and an innovative superhero dramedy called “WandaVision”, on Disney+.
Hall said that the “most exciting race” of the year is limited series.
Television Academy’s members pick the winners. They are well-known for pulling off surprises.
Billy Porter and MJ Rodrguez of FX’s drama “Pose”, won accolades for their roles in an emotional finale of the show about New York’s Underground Drag Culture in the 1980s. The series features a wide cast of LGBTQ actors. “Pose,” which is nominated for best drama series, also won.
Rodriguez, if she is victorious on Sunday, would be transgender first woman to receive an Emmy as best actress.
Hall stated, “It’s a great performance from Billy Porter and it would mark a significant moment for MJ. Rodriguez.”
The Emmys could bring back one of the most beloved shows on television, 1990’s Comedy “Friends”. This year’s “Friends” reunion special, which featured six actors recalling their time playing 20Something New Yorkers in earlier years of television, is up against “Hamilton,” the Broadway version.
