The HBO drama "Succession," the FX/Hulu comedy "The Bear" and the Netflix limited series "Beef" were the dominant winners at the 75th Emmy Awards on Monday, leading their respective networks to the top of the TV pack. HBO led the night with nine wins, followed by FX/Hulu and Netflix with six apiece.

In the drama categories, "Succession," which centers on the brutal battle among several members of a wealthy family for control of a media empire, scored six statuettes — drama series, lead actor, lead actress, supporting actor, writer and director.

"The Bear," about the eccentric staff of a struggling Chicago eatery, was the main victor on the comedy front with six wins — comedy series, lead actor, supporting actor, supporting actress, writer and director. Quinta Brunson, creator and star of "Abbott Elementary," scored a lead actress prize.

"Beef," about a road rage incident that escalates into a tragicomic life-or-death conflict between its warring protagonists, commanded in the limited series categories, with wins for series, lead actor, lead actress, directing and writing. Jennifer Coolidge took home another Emmy for supporting actress in the popular HBO limited series "The White Lotus," while Paul Walter Hauser was named supporting actor for Apple TV+'s "Black Bird."

It was a belated celebration for the Emmys, which is usually held in September but was postponed to Martin Luther King Jr. Day because of last year's dual actors' and writers' strikes.

Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the show had a nostalgic vibe, honoring classic TV titles such as "All in The Family," "The Sopranos," "Cheers," "Martin" and "Ally McBeal" through cast reunions and replica sets.

The emphasis on TV history also produced heightened emotions. Among the beloved stars receiving standing ovations from the starry audience were legends Carol Burnett and Marla Gibbs, and Christina Applegate, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was the recipient of a rousing reception as she walked onstage, assisted by Anderson.

Diversity was also center stage, with Ali Wong becoming the first woman of Asian descent to win a lead acting award at the Emmys, and Black victors such as Brunson, Ayo Edebiri, Niecy Nash-Betts and RuPaul receiving a shout-out from Anderson: "How do you like the chocolate Emmys?" he quipped at one point. "This is like Martin Luther King Day and Juneteenth rolled into one."
