Emmy Awards 2022: Warner. Discovery Leads All Emmy Winners as HBO Tops Netflix

Warner.Discovery Leads All Emmy Winners as HBO Tops Netflix

Even without the benefit of HBO Max, the premium cable network breezed right by its rival.

Bolstered by HBO’s strong showing, Warner.Discovery led all the major media conglomerates with a total of 40 wins. That tally, calculated by The Hollywood Reporter after the TV Academy declined to break out those statistics for the first time this year, was no surprise given that a combined HBO and HBO Max earned a whopping 140 total nominations, with HBO proper clocking in at 108 — enough to edge the 105 mentions that Netflix collected. The Warner Bros. Discovery total includes 34 wins for HBO and four for HBO Max (both are overseen by Casey Bloys), as well as one each for TBS and CNN.

Netflix finished with 26 wins — good for second among individual outlets — though when factoring in the combination of Disney assets including Hulu (10) and Disney+ (nine), the streaming giant and Mouse House finished with a tie for second among the conglomerates.

Apple finished in third with nine, thanks in part to Ted Lasso’s repeat wins. The iPhone maker edged out Amazon, which finished with seven wins.

Wins by Program

HBO’s The White Lotus was the year’s big winner with 10, followed by a tie for second between the cabler’s Euphoria (six) and Netflix’s Squid Game (six).

There was a three-way tie for third place between CBS’ Adele: One Night Only, Netflix’s Stranger Things and Apple TV+’s The Beatles: Get Back (five each).
