The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards to honour the best in the television industry returned for the first in-person ceremony since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
After last year's pandemic-mandated virtual event, the nominees were welcomed back in person at the Emmys -- but only a lucky few of them.
