The Netflix dramatic “The Queen’s Gambit” series starring Anya Taylor-Joy won Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series. It competed in six categories, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Taylor-Joy. However, the Argentinian-American actress lost to Kate Winslet for her role as Mare Sheehan on HBO’s “Mare of Easttown.”

Disney+’s “Hamilton,” created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, won for Outstanding Variety Special in the pre-recorded category.

Miranda was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie but lost to Ewan McGregor, who played fashion designer Roy Halston on Netflix’s “Halston.”

Disney+’s “Hamilton” is the live recording of the acclaimed Broadway musical of the same title, which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers. Captured live from the Richard Rodgers Theater, the movie features the original theater cast. “Hamilton” had a total of nine Emmy nominations.

One of the few nominated Latinos actors was MJ Rodríguez, who vied for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Blanca Evangelista on FX’s “Pose.” She lost to Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix’s “The Crown.” Still, Rodriguez made history as the first transgender person nominated for an Emmy Award in a major acting category.
