The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards rolled out the red carpet on Sunday, celebrating some of television's best.

Live with a limited audience on the Event Deck behind the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, the award show kicked off with a performance by host Cedric the Entertainer, rapper LL Cool J, Rita Wilson and more.

Canadian actor Seth Rogen kicked off the awards with a comedy routine before presenting the first award for supporting actress in a comedy series to Hannah Waddingham of Ted Lasso.

Saturday Night Live picked up the Emmy Award for outstanding variety sketch series, and Canadian producer Lorne Michaels paid tribute to fellow Canadian comedian and cast member Norm Macdonald, who died Tuesday at the age of 61 from leukemia.

Last year's Emmy Awards were mostly virtual, and this year, organizers originally announced an indoor affair before the COVID-19 delta variant forced a majority of the event outdoors.

And while most stars made it to Los Angeles, the cast and producers of The Crown held their own ceremony remotely in London, U.K., similar to what Schitt's Creek did in 2020 from Toronto.

Some awards were given out last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys, where Schitt's Creek's Dan Levy lost to Dave Chappelle for guest hosting Saturday Night Live in February.
