Emmy Awards recap: Biggest moments from the 75th annual awards show

The awards show saw several TV cast reunions and a new EGOT winner.

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in television Monday night.

"Succession," "The Bear" and "Beef" took home the top awards, winning for outstanding drama series, outstanding comedy series and outstanding limited or anthology series, respectively.

The three-hour telecast, hosted by Anthony Anderson, saw numerous cast reunions -- bringing together stars from iconic shows like "Martin," "Cheers" and "Grey's Anatomy" -- and paid tribute to those we've lost since the previous Emmy Awards, which aired in September 2022.

The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards were originally scheduled to air on Sept. 18, 2023, but were rescheduled due to the Hollywood strikes.

Check out a recap of how the night unfolded.

Emmys end with clip of Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech

The Emmy Awards, which took place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, ended with a clip of the Civil Rights leader's famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

Host Anthony Anderson introduced the clip, which featured the closing lines of King's speech delivered Aug. 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" King says in the clip.

'Succession' wins outstanding drama series

"Succession" won the Emmy for outstanding drama series. This is the show's sixth Emmy win tonight.

Creator and screenwriter Jesse Armstrong accepted the award on behalf of the series alongside the cast and crew onstage.

"We're so honored, we loved making this show," Armstrong said.

"Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage presented the category.

Other nominees in the category included "Andor," "Better Call Saul," "The Crown," "House of the Dragon," "The Last of Us," "The White Lotus" and "Yellowjackets."

'The Bear' wins outstanding comedy series

"The Bear" won the Emmy for outstanding comedy series.

Matty Matheson shouted out the restaurant and hospitality industry before co-star Ebon Moss-Bachrach gave him a kiss.

"I just love restaurants so much -- the good, the bad. It's rough, we're all broken inside and every single day we've got to show up and cook and make people feel good by eating something and sitting at a table, and it's really beautiful," he said, echoing that making the show is also a "really beautiful" experience.

Natasha Lyonne and Tracee Ellis Ross presented the category.

Other nominees in the category included "Abbott Elementary," "Barry," "Jury Duty," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Only Murders in the Building," "Ted Lasso" and "Wednesday."

Sarah Snook wins outstanding lead actress in a drama series

Sarah Snook of "Succession" won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series. She shared a sweet dedication to her daughter during her acceptance speech.

"The biggest thank you I think goes to someone who won't understand anything that I'm saying at the moment but I carried her with me in this last season, and really, it was her who carried me," she said. "It's very easy to act when you're pregnant because you've got hormones raging, and it was more that the proximity of her life growing inside me gave me the strength to do this and this performance."

Other nominees in the category included Sharon Horgan in "Bad Sisters," Melanie Lynskey in "Yellowjackets," Elisabeth Moss in "The Handmaid's Tale," Bella Ramsey in "The Last of Us" and Keri Russell in "The Diplomat."
