Jean Smart has been awarded with the Outstanding lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the 74th Television Academy Awards, which was held on Monday, September 12, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, for her role in Hacks. 

Hacks explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance, a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old. Explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance, a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old.

The Emmy Awards 2022 is the one of the first major award shows to happen this year to happen in a more 'normal' setting since the pandemic hit us back in 2020.

As reported by ABC News, it was a full show at the red carpet this year with the entire ceremony taking place indoors like it used to and in front of a full studio audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. 

Interestingly, it is also the first major Emmys is being broadcasted live since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.

Host Kenan Thompson, who is also marking his debut as emcee of the Emmys, joked in his opening monologue about how Zendaya cannot date Leonardo DiCaprio as she recently turned 26, and took multiple digs at streaming giant Netflix for losing subscribers. 

“This should be a night of appreciating artistry and creativity and removing the stress of it all out,” he was quoted as saying by The Associated Press. 

Lionsgate Play is exclusively streaming the 74th Emmy Awards in India.
