The results were announced during the Creative Arts Emmys, which were held over the weekend, though neither the Sussexes, Tucci or Winfrey attended.

The couple's tell-all was also up against My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, United Shades of America W. Kamau Bell and VICE.

During the televised sit-down with Winfrey, Harry and Meghan explained why they moved to America and disclosed the struggles they faced as members of the royal family, such as racism and their deteriorating mental health.

The father-of-two admitted that his relationship with his brother, Prince William, and his father, Prince Charles, had taken a hit prior to the tell-all, and the royal family was obviously upset over Harry's accusations once the interview aired.

However, Winfrey insisted that the Sussexes have no regrets about publicizing their experiences.

"Privacy doesn’t mean silence. You know, I ask for privacy, and I’m talking all the time," the TV star stated.

That’s what people are missing."

"They have not shared any regrets with me," she continued. "I understood what had happened to them, and I wanted the rest of the world to come away being able to answer the question, ‘Why did they leave?’ And I think by the time that interview was done, people understood.”

Some viewers weren't happy at the timing of the interview, as it aired in early March, which was when Prince Philip was hospitalized — though it was pre-recorded.

The Primetime Emmy Awards air on CBS on Sunday, September 19.
