Emmys 2022: Full list of winners at the awards that celebrate the best television - including Brits Adele, Brett Goldstein, John Oliver, and Jesse Armstrong

There were three big winners at this year’s Emmy Awards, broadcast from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles last night.

The majority of the gongs were shared between Hawaii-set limited series White Lotus (five awards), football comedy Ted Lasso (four awards) and media empite drama Succession (three awards).

Lockdown hit Squid Game won two trophies, including a win for star Lee Jung-jae, the first person to win an acting award for a non-English language performance.

And there was some success for British talent, with standup Brett Goldstein winning his second consecutive Emmy for best supporting actor in a comedy for Ted Lasso, and Succession writer Jesse Armstrong recognised for the memorable ‘ All The Bells Say’ episode of the acclaimed drama series.

Meanwhile John Oliver, who worked as a comedian in the UK before heading to the USA to work for Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’, won a remarkable seventh straight Emmy for best variety talk series for ‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’ – later picking up a second award for his writing on the same programme.

There was also good news for singer Adele, with her win for outstanding pre-recorded variety special meaning she’s now three-quarters of the way to being an EGOT – she has an Emmy, a Golden Globe and an Oscar, just needing a Tony to complete the set.
