Kieran Culkin

On Monday night at the 2023 Emmys, after winning his first-ever Emmy, Kieran Culkin playfully mentioned on stage that he’s ready to expand their family.

He expressed gratitude to his wife, Jazz, for sharing her life with him and giving them two wonderful kids, Kinsey Sioux and Wilder Wolf. Culkin then jokingly added, “And Jazz, I want more. You said maybe if I win.” The audience laughed, and Jazz smiled and chuckled in her seat.

Kieran Culkin won his first Emmy award for Best Actor in a Drama Series for playing Roman Roy in the fourth and final season of Succession in 2023. This marked his third nomination and first win, following victories at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards earlier in the month. Succession also took home the award for Best Drama Series at all three ceremonies.

Backstage, Culkin shared more gratitude, thanking his mother for his wonderful childhood and his manager, Emily Gerson-Saines, for keeping his name in the conversation during quieter times. When asked if he would name the baby after his Succession character, Roman, Culkin humorously replied with a firm “No.”

Outstanding Drama Award goes to Succession

Succession is going out with a bang! The much-loved comedy-drama series concluded its fourth and final season in May last year, and since then, it’s been dominating all the major awards this season. At the 75th Emmys, Jesse Armstrong’s HBO hit secured the Outstanding Drama Series award.

Having led the nominations with 27 nods, Succession triumphed in the Best Drama category, beating out tough competition from Andor, Better Call Saul, House of Dragon, The Crown, The Last of Us, Yellowjackets, and The White Lotus.

Accepting the award on the Emmys stage with the entire Succession cast, creator Jesse Armstrong expressed gratitude to HBO, acknowledging that the show wasn’t an easy one to commission initially. He also gave a special shoutout to actor Brian Cox, who portrayed Logan Roy, noting that the show revolved around him, whether he was in it or not.

This victory marks the third time Succession has clinched the Best Drama category. The show had previously secured a Golden Globe Award and a Critics Choice Award in the same category. Looking at Emmy Awards, Succession and FX’s The Bear tied for the most wins, each bagging six awards. They faced tough competition from netflix’s Beef, which secured five awards.

The well-received media dynasty drama accumulated six awards out of its 27 nominations, including Best Drama, Best Actor and Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, and Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series.
