When it comes to the award for best comedy, there can be only one winner, though we have no doubt it was a close call.

The 73rd annual Emmy Awards took place tonight in downtown Los Angeles. During the broadcast, Ted Lasso won the statuette for Outstanding Comedy Series.

So, who did the series beat out? Other nominees included Black-ish, Cobra Kai, Emily in Paris, Hacks, The Flight Attendant, The Kominsky Method and Pen15.

The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series originally made its debut back in 1952. The show is joining a long list of winners, including Schitt’s CreekFleabagThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Veep, Modern Family, 30 Rock, The Office, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development, Friends, Sex and the City, Will & Grace, Ally McBeal, Frasier, Seinfeld, Murphy Brown, CheersThe Wonder Years, The Golden Girls, The Cosby Show, Barney Miller, Taxi, All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, M*A*S*H and My World and Welcome to It.

Frasier (NBC) and Modern Family (ABC) currently hold the record for the most consecutive wins in this category, with five statuettes each.

Regardless of the outcome, we’d be lying if we said that we’re not planning on spending the next few weeks binge-watching each of the nominated shows. (You know, for research purposes.)
