Updated on

Netflix Inc. won the most Emmy awards of any TV network Monday night, capping a sudden and dramatic rise to the top of the entertainment industry for a company that got its start as a DVD-by-mail operation.

Netflix earned seven awards during Monday’s prime-time presentation of Emmys and 23 overall, both records for the streaming giant. Its biggest prizes came for “The Crown,’’ a period drama about the British royal family, and “Godless,’’ a Western miniseries.
