'Mrs. Maisel' takes home seven Emmy awards

'Mrs. Maisel' takes home seven Emmy awards”

HBO's "Game of Thrones" was named best drama series, beating last year's champion 'The Handmaid's Tale'. In addition to best drama series, the show also picked up awards like best supporting actor in a drama, which went to Peter Dinklage.

Join us as we follow the action.

With perennial victor Julia Louis-Dreyfus out of the running after a hiatus for her show "Veep", Brosnahan took the award for best lead actress in a comedy series, for her role as a suddenly single Upper West Side housewife pursuing a career in stand-up comedy in 1958.

In the comedy categories, Mrs Maisel bested all comers in its first year of eligibility, sweeping the female acting prizes (star Rachel Brosnahan and co-star Alex Borstein) and best series honors.

As Bill Hader went up to the stage to receive his Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, he leaned over to give a hug to none other than Perkins.

Emmy hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost from "Saturday Night Live" sprinkled the evening with skits and jokes about diversity on television, sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, and the power of streaming services like Amazon and Netflix.

"Saturday Night Live" won, as expected, for variety sketch series, taking its lifetime Emmy total to a record-setting 72 wins since 1975.

"I don't know who it was, but I know it was that guy from Atlanta", Hader said backstage.

Yeardley Smith, an Emmy victor for voicing Lisa on "The Simpsons", said she doesn't object when winners use the spotlight to say more than "thank you". "You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend?"

Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Henry Winkler, "Barry".

It won nine Emmys this year, meaning the blood-spattered tale of the battle for the Iron Throne - which returns in 2019 for an abbreviated eighth and final season - now has 47 awards overall.

Then Regina King broke the string, with a best actress trophy in a limited series or movie for "Seven Seconds", which tracks the fallout from a white police officer's traffic accident involving a black teenager.
