“winning Best Drama and cracking a joke about the royal succession on national TV is quite a choice,” one person tweeted, while another echoed, “the royal family succession bit during Succession’s best drama speech I cringe.”
Meanwhile, some fans seemed amused.
“Why is the dude accepting the award for Succession looking for enemies in the royal family omgndjsksmddjj,” one person wrote.
“it’s so funny bc ik those ppl watch succession and laugh at all the f–ked up jokes and they can’t laugh at this even though it’s literally the truth there IS in fact more voting done for the emmy’s compared to making a British royal in charge of the country get a grip LMAO,” another individual added.
