Emmy Records to Watch: Netflix, ‘Ted Lasso’ and Bo Burnham Could All Make History

Emmy Records to Watch: Netflix, ‘Ted Lasso’ and Bo Burnham Could All Make History
Every Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony seems to set a few new records, and Sunday’s 73rd Emmy show will be no different. For starters, if “Saturday Night Live” wins anything — and let’s face it, “SNL” always wins something at the Emmys — it will break and extend its own record as the winningest program in Emmy history.

But there are other records that could fall on Sunday, too, among them records for diversity and a potential new mark for a network or platform in a single year. Here are a dozen records to watch:

• If Netflix wins in 11 of the 19 categories in which it is nominated on Sunday, which is possible if “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit” clean up, it will break CBS’ record for the most wins by a network in a single year. Netflix goes into the ceremony with 34 wins from last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys,

Dan Levy, who co-created and acted in the nine-time Emmy-award winning comedy "Schitt's Creek," will be making more stuff, this time with Netflix.

The deal comes after the streaming platform turned "Schitt's Creek" — which first aired on Pop TV in 2015 — from a quiet comedy into a cultural phenomenon that, in 2020, became the most awarded comedy series in a single year.

Netflix won the deal with Levy under competitive conditions and will cover both film and television projects, though the television part won't happen until July 2022 when Levy's contract with ABC Signature ends. In the meantime, he'll start working on a romantic...

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Creator Dan Levy Latest A-Lister to Land Netflix Deal for Film and TV
One year after “Schitt’s Creek” had its historic sweep at the Emmys — becoming the first comedy to win every major award — its co-creator Dan Levy has signed a new deal with Netflix.

In the deal, which is said to be eight figures under competitive circumstances, Levy will work on both movies and television. He’ll start work immediately on the film side, on an untitled romantic comedy that he’ll star in, write, produce and direct. Sister’s Stacey Snider and Kate Fenske will also produce with Levy. No further details about the project were announced.

Levy and Netflix was a marriage waiting to happen: It was the streamer that propelled “Schitt’s Creek” — which premiered on Pop TV in 2015 — into the stratosphere. In a Variety cover story about the show in April 2020, Eugene Levy, “Schitt’s Creek” co-creator and Dan Levy’s father, told Variety that when the comedy began streaming

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Creator Dan Levy Inks Film, TV Deal With Netflix
Dan Levy is firming up his future.

The Schitt’s Creek creator has inked a rich new multiple-year overall film and TV deal with Netflix. The film component will begin immediately, while the TV side will begin in July 2022, after his three-year deal with Disney-backed ABC Signature expires.

Emmys 2021 Predictions in All 26 Major Categories (Photos)
Even when Emmy voters are for the most part predictable, they always throw in a couple of surprises. Last year, for instance, “Schitt’s Creek” and “Succession” and “Watchmen” won, as expected, but Zendaya scored a shocking victory in the drama actress category for “Euphoria.” And this year, members of the Television Academy voters already pulled some big surprises at the Creative Arts Emmys, most notably when they named “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square” the year’s best television movie and gave Claire Foy the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series award for one flashback scene in “The Crown.”

They’ll no doubt have other surprises up their sleeves on Sunday at the all-vaccinated, all-tested Primetime Emmy Awards. But where? “Ted Lasso” seems like a prohibitive favorite in the comedy categories and “The Crown” the leader in drama, while the nine Emmys already won by “The Queen’s Gambit” may

Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2021: Outstanding Comedy Series – Following ‘Maisel’, ‘Fleabag’, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Yet Another First Time Winner Guaranteed

Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2021: Outstanding Comedy Series – Following ‘Maisel’, ‘Fleabag’, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Yet Another First Time Winner Guaranteed
In the past, Emmy voters tended to like one show and then let it repeat for several seasons as the champ in the Comedy Series category. Until very recently, just three series enjoyed multiple runs at the gold: there were three wins in a row for 30 Rock, followed by five wins in a row for Modern Family, then three wins in a row for Veep. However, in recent Emmy Awards the winner in this category has gone to three different shows in as many years: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2018), Fleabag (2019), and Schitt’s Creek (2020).

In all those cases the win was overwhelming, but also came with their first nominations as Best Comedy Series. What’s interesting about the race this year is that none of them will be defending their crown, since Fleabag and Schitt’s Creek are history, and Mrs.

Emmy Producers Talk Vax Mandate, Tease Cedric & Friends Opening Musical Number And ‘The Crown’s UK Party
Last year, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted Primetime Emmys was the first major awards show to pull off a ceremony during the pandemic with all nominees featured remotely. This year, only “a handful” of the nominees will be beamed into the show via satellite, said Ian Stewart who, along with Reginald Hudlin, executive produced the well received virtual 2020 Emmys on ABC and also executive produce the 2021 awards on CBS, which will be held Sunday in an air-conditioned tent on The Event Deck at L.A. Live with limited, vaccinated audience sitting at dinner tables.

Hosting the Emmys this year is Cedric the Entertainer, star of CBS’ comedy series The Neighborhood. “He has extraordinary versatility — whether it’s comedy, whether it’s music, whether its drama, he can do it all,” Hudlin said. “What we want to do across the show is to feature his full range of talents.”

That will start right away.

Schitt's Creek: One Quote From Each Character That Perfectly Sums Up Their Personality
Even though it ended after six seasons, there is no denying that Schitt's Creek has become something of a television phenomenon. Following the once-wealthy Rose family, as they suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in the lowly eponymous town, the show proved to be highly successful due to groundbreaking moments, unique and funny storylines, and a fantastic cast of main characters.

Emmy Producers Reveal Telecast Plans; TV Academy CEO Confirms Re-Election Bid (Exclusive)
When Frank Scherma was elected as chairman and CEO of the Television Academy three years ago, he came to office with grand plans to reform the organization. What he didn’t plan on was a global pandemic interrupting that focus.

That’s why, as Scherma confirmed to Variety on Wednesday morning, he plans to run for re-election in November in a bid to continue as chairman/CEO for another two-year term.

Scherma and TV Academy president Maury McIntyre spoke to Variety at the Television Academy’s North Hollywood headquarters, as part of a preview for this Sunday’s Primetime Emmys telecast.

“There was a lot that the Board of Governors and myself and Maury and the team wanted to accomplish,” Scherma said of his tenure. “It’s harder to accomplish on Zooms than all of us sitting face to face and getting through stuff — between the diversity and equity inclusion issues,

Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2021: Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series – Will Voters Make The Smart Choice In A Strong Field?
Like the Lead Comedy Actor group, this category only sports five nominees, including veterans Tracee Ellis Ross and Allison Janney, but also two new HBO Max shows providing sensational roles for a couple of TV sitcom veterans. Deservedly, the Emmy last year went to Catherine O’Hara of Schitt’s Creek, showing that voters do like to honor their icons when they can. However, this is a category that usually resists change: Julia Louis Dreyfus won it six times in a row for Veep, and Candice Bergen took it five times in a row for Murphy Brown. This year there is one former Emmy winner who carries the odds to be back in the winner’s circle for a new show that broke just as the season came to an end.

Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2021: Lead Actor In A Comedy Series – Does Jason Sudeikis Have The Winning Game Plan?
After last year’s Schitt’s Creek tsunami—the series completely dominated the comedy categories and crushed the competition in its final season, including a well-deserved win here for Eugene Levy—it’s more or less back to normal in this category with just five nominees, including several veterans. These include Anthony Anderson, with his seventh consecutive nomination here, as well as William H. Macy who has grabbed his sixth nod for Shameless after sitting the last two years out. Michael Douglas is also back for the third straight year. Overall, though, this is one of the weaker years for comedy categories, but one that has been considerably boosted (thank god) by the new entries, Ted Lasso and Hacks. The latter doesn’t figure in this category, but Mr. Lasso and his kindness brand certainly does. Here is a rundown of the nominees. Scroll down to the end for the predicted

Emmys 2021: Who Will Win, Who Should Win

Emmys 2021: Who Will Win, Who Should Win
Last year’s Primetime Emmy Awards were defined by dominance. Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek became the first series in Emmys history to sweep all four acting categories in its genre, while also winning for writing, directing, and Outstanding Comedy Series. HBO’s Watchmen and Succession didn’t do quite as well in, respectively, the limited series and drama categories, but they came close. It was a night where the concept of sharing the wealth seemed largely foreign to the voters of the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a Comedy Series — The Smart Money’s on Smart
Last Year’s Winner: Catherine O’Hara, “Schitt’s Creek

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: It may seem like only yesterday, but it’s been four years now since Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth straight Emmy Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, all of which were bestowed for her work on “Veep.” Since then, three different actors have won — Rachel Brosnahan for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Phoebe Waller-Bridge for “Fleabag,” and Catherine O’Hara for “Schitt’s Creek.” With O’Hara ineligible in 2021, there will be a new victor for the fourth consecutive Emmy season.

Fun Fact: Of the 15 TV shows to win multiple times in the Best Actress in a Comedy category, only three crowned more than one performer: Shelly Long and Kirstie Alley both won for “Cheers,” Ruth Gordon and Carol Kane won for “Taxi,” and three of the “Golden Girls” took home the Lead Actress trophy: Betty White,

‘Ted Lasso’, ‘The Crown’ & ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Building Emmy Momentum With Creative Arts Showing

‘Ted Lasso’, ‘The Crown’ & ‘The Queen’s Gambit’ Building Emmy Momentum With Creative Arts Showing
The last category that closed out the Creative Arts Emmy Awards — an anchor position typically reserved for Outstanding Series at the main ceremony — was Casting for a Comedy Series, which went to Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso.

The marquee slot was fitting given that the Casting for a Comedy Series category has been a reliable predictor for the Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy winner. The last six shows to take home Casting For a Comedy Series Emmy have gone on to also triumph in the top comedy series category a week later. That includes last year’s big Emmy winner Schitt’s Creek.

Casting for Drama Series, won by Netflix’s The Crown tonight, is a little less reliable in predicting the eventual Outstanding Drama Series winner; it has successfully done so in four of the last six years, including last year with Succession. (One of the two times that Casting and
