The Crown took centre stage at the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday.

The royal-centric show was nominated for a whopping 24 awards from the Television Academy, tying it with the Disney+ hit The Mandalorian for the amount of nominations.

The Netflix show had already won three Emmys at the Creative Arts ceremony, which were held on 12 September. On Sunday night, it continued its winning streak by dominating the drama categories with eight wins, with Olivia Colman winning the coveted Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series prize for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II - making her the second actress to win for the same role.

Gillian Anderson and Tobias Menzies scored supporting awards for playing British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Prince Philip, respectively, while Josh O'Connor was honoured for his lead role as Prince Charles.

Over in the comedy categories, Ted Lasso was a big winner. It was named best comedy series, while its stars Jason Sudeikis, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein took home prizes.
