In addition to winning three Globe Globesthe Netflix series Beef won eight Emmy awards! The awards include:

  • Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series
  • Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie (Ali Wong)
  • Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie (Steven Yuen)
  • Outstanding Directing for A Limited or Anthology Series or Movie (Lee Sung Jin)
  • Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie
  • Outstanding Casting for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie
  • Outstanding Contemporary Costumes for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie
  • Outstanding Picture Editing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie

In addition to winning Emmy awards, Beef won four Critics Choice awards the night before:

  • Best Limited Series
  • Best Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television (Steven Yeun)
  • Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television (Ali Wong)
  • Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television (Maria Bello)

If you asked me 10 years ago whether a TV miniseries with Asian Americans that actually talked about Asian American issues and culture would win eight Emmy awards, I wouldn’t have believed you.  Let’s hope excellent work like this keeps emerging.
