Apple TV+ took home nine Emmys at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards Monday night, including Outstanding Comedy Series for Ted Lasso for the second year running.

Apple TV+ is trying to kill me, specifically, the guy writing this. They’re trying to kill me. Send help. I am begging you, find someone, call the United Nations.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series is reportedly getting fifth season and is becoming part of Apple TV+. The Emmy-winning program by James Cordon debuted years before Apple’s streaming service was around but now the two are coming together.

See how many celebs you can name:
