One of the most critically acclaimed series now holds a negative record in the history of the Emmys.

Due to the delays caused by the strike, this is an atypical year in which the ceremony of the Emmy was moved from its normal date in September and was only able to be broadcast in the early hours of January 16, in the middle of the enormous storm that is the Award Season.

On a night when “Succession” , “The Bear” It is “Beef” dominated practically all the main categories, there were many beloved series that left without any victory from the main ceremony such as “The Last of Us“, “House of the Dragon” or “The Crown”.

However, there is a big favorite of criticism who had an even worse night. Since during his six seasons, he never managed to turn any of his 53 nominations into a victory.
