The 73rd edition of the Emmy Awards celebrated the best of English-speaking television in the last year and surprised with the number of winners that reached audiences in Latin America. Unlike previous editions, only one of the night’s main shows, Ted Lasso, is not yet available in all of the region.
As predicted in the nominations, the platform that won the most awards was Netflix, with The Crown as the most awarded, and then with The Queen’s Gambit, chosen as the best miniseries. Both shows had a huge impact in Latin American countries, where they remained for several weeks at the Top 10 of the service.
However, the big revelation of the evening was Ted Lasso, the Apple TV + comedy that tells the story of an American football coach who is chosen to lead a major English soccer team. Despite the success that won its four awards (best comedy series, best leading actor, best supporting actor and best supporting actress), the series has not yet reached all countries in Latin America, such as Uruguay.
While the Apple streaming service still doesn’t have a launch date in the Uruguayan territory, so far there is no news of any agreement with other operators or services to add the program to its catalogue, as has happened with shows such as The Handmaid’s Tale, which was enabled by Hulu for Paramount Plus to broadcast in several Latin American countries.
