The Netflix hit series The Queen's Gambit won a total of 11 Emmy Awards, including the top prize for limited series. At Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards, director Scott Frank received a trophy as well, a week after the series had already clinched nine prizes in technical categories.
The Queen's Gambit is the first streaming series to win the award for outstanding limited or anthology series, a separate category for series that run a maximum of one season. The other nominated series in the category were I May Destroy You, Mare of Easttown, The Underground Railroad, and WandaVision.
Handed out for the 73rd time on Sunday, the Primetime Emmy Awards are prizes in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming, similar to the Academy Award (Oscar) for motion pictures. chess.com
