On the night of September 12, the winners of the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced. Korean actor Lee Jung-jae won the Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series for “The Squid Game”, beating out Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Brian Cox (The Inheritance), Jeremy Strong (The Inheritance) and Adam Scott (The Life Cutter). He became the first Asian to win the award in the history of the Emmy Awards and the first actor to be named an Emmy “Actor of the Year” for a non-English speaking role.

However, the results have brought controversy to the Emmy Awards’ judging integrity, with fans of “Better Call Saul” tweeting “Bob Odenkirk ROBBED” to criticize the Emmys for The organizers “rigged” the awards. Michael McKean, who plays the main character’s brother “Chuck” in “Better Call Saul,” also tweeted his displeasure immediately after Lee Jung-jae’s win: “well, fuck that noise.”

Founded in 1949, the Emmy Awards (Emmy Awards), sponsored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, are the highest awards in the U.S. television industry, along with the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, and Tony Awards, known as the “Four Awards of American Show Business”.

On September 12, 2022, the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where a “streaming battle” was staged.

The White Lotus, HBO’s biting commentary on wealth, class and family set at a luxury resort, led the 74th Emmy Awards with five wins. The Apple TV+ comedy Ted Lasso was close behind with four, followed by HBO’s Succession with three and ABC’s Abbott Elementary and Squid Game, from Netflix, with two each.

The US AMC produced the word-of-mouth work “Better Call Saul” once again returned with regret, the sixth season as the final season, failed to change the show’s dismal award luck, in six seasons after the cumulative 46 Emmy nominations, to 0 awards end. The night, the “Better Call Saul” “accompanying” cause concern, the show on the Twitter U.S. area hot search.

The series, which received a 98 out of 100 rating from professional critics on Rotten Tomatoes, has been on a solid footing since its first season in 2015.

The most “abusive” fans of the show is that Bob Odenkirk with “Better Call Saul” five times nominated for best actor in a drama category, the sixth season, but still passed with the “Actor”, beating him is “Squid Game” actor Lee Jung-jae.

Lee Jung Jae thus became the first Asian actor in the history of the Emmy Awards to win the Best Actor in a Drama category, the fourth Asian actor ever to win an Emmy Award in the acting category, and the first actor to be named the Emmy “Actor of the Year” for a non-English speaking role. When the awards were announced, the stage erupted in applause and cheers. Meanwhile, Hwang Dong-hyuk, the director of “The Squid Game,” took home the award for Best Director in the Drama category.

After the awards were given out, many American media reported Lee Jung-jae’s “history-making” win, but the Metro website found that fans of “Better Call Saul” on Twitter were furious and were “upset” about Bob Odenkirk.

In the Emmy Awards official announcement of Lee Jung Jae’s award, many foreign netizens brushed up “Bob odenkirk ROBBED”, saying that Odenkirk’s award was “robbed”.

Bob Odenkirk himself took it in stride, tweeting, “The last eight years I’ve had the honor of working with the very best onstage and off.  Far far more than I deserved.  Rhea, thanks for holding my head off the concrete floor.”

It is worth mentioning that “Better Call Saul” was not the only drama to return empty-handed from the Primetime Emmy Awards that night, “Life Cutting” was “6 mentions and 0 wins” that night, “Barry” was “5 mentions and 0 wins”, “Murder in an Apartment Building”, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, “Pam and Tommy” were “4 mentions and 0 wins”.
