"The Crown" reigned supreme at the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

The Netflix drama series about the Royal Family took home seven awards on Sunday — including best drama — marking the most of any show. Olivia Colman won the award for best lead actress in a drama for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II.

"Ted Lasso," the Apple TV Plus series about an American football coach taking on English soccer, led the way for comedies with four Emmys, including best comedy series. Jason Sudeikis won the award for best lead actor in a comedy series for his portrayal of the titular main character.

HBO's gripping murder mystery "Mare of Easttown" also cleared three wins, including Kate Winslet's award for lead actress in a limited series. Netflix's chess drama "The Queen's Gambit" was named the best limited series show.
