The Emmys moments you may have missed, from The Handmaid's Tale's loss to #EmmysSoWhite .
New records achieved (good and bad), more accusations of institutional racism and, because we're in a pandemic, some legitimate health and safety concerns. The Handmaid's Tale earned an unfortunate claim to fameThe Handmaid's Tale went into this year's event with 21 nominations for its fourth season, up there with The Crown and The Mandalorian (24) and (23).But unfortunately for the show, which was crowned Best Drama in 2017, it was successful in exactly zero of those categories.That means the popular dystopian drama, now four series in (and with a fifth on the way), has become the biggest loser in Emmys history.
