Amazon Prime Video had a big win on Monday night with the “Big Grrrls.”

The reality competition series “Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,” where women compete to earn jobs as backup dancers for music star Lizzo, gave Amazon it’s only victory at the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards. (The tech giant’s streaming service did pick up seven Creative Arts Emmys previously.)

“Big Grrls” unseated “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” which had won the reality category four straight times.

HBO was the big overall winner with 38 Emmys across the Primetime and Creative Arts shows, riding the strength of such series as “The White Lotus,” “Succession,” and “Euphoria.”

Netflix won 26 total Emmys, but just three on Monday night. Apple TV+ won some bragging rights with a big win for Outstanding Comedy Series for “Ted Lasso.”
