Typically, the Emmys are handed out in September, the start of the traditional TV season, as a means of juicing interest and ratings in the latest crop of shows. But this year’s Emmys were postponed due to the actors and writers strikes that were still ongoing in September (and October, and into November), so the show got put off until early January. And thus we only now gave out last year’s Emmys.

As for the winners, I expected a fair amount of overlap from the recent Golden GlobesSuccession dominating the drama category, The Bear dominating the comedy awards, and Beef taking home a bunch of the prizes for limited series or TV movies (Why, on a show with a gabillion awards already, they group those two very different things together I do not know.)

Aaaaaaand that’s exactly what happened. Succession won Best Drama Series, The Bear won Best Comedy Series, and Beef won Best Limited Series. Each show won top acting awards for stars like Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, Ali Wong, and Steven Yeun. There were really very few surprises all night, and most of the awards went to a small handful of critically acclaimed shows. (Pretty much those three right there!)

Here are all the winners from this year’s (last year’s?) Emmys. (Note: Some of these awards were given out over the weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys):
