The shocking interview between Oprah Winfrey and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was a moment that rocked across the pond in early 2021, with details inside the royal family causing a divide between followers of British royalty. However, the gossip surrounding the big night on television wasn’t enough when it came to the 2021 Creative Arts Emmys.
The CBS special lost to none other than Stanley Tucci for his CNN series “Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy.” According to the Daily Mail, neither the Duke and Duchess of Sussex nor Tucci were in attendance at the Emmys event, but the “Devil Wears Prada” star took home the trophy. Tucci’s “Stanley Tucci: Searching For Italy” features the actor traveling around Italy to uncover stories about the country, and of course, try delicious foods along the way. The show is reminiscent of the network’s popular series “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” which previously “dominated” the Emmys’ Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category that Tucci took home, according to Deadline.
Other series nominated in the category included Netflix’s “David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” Showtime’s “Vice,” and CNN’s “United Shades of America With W. Kamau Bell.”
