Emmys go to North Shore’s Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein for ‘Mrs. Maisel’

Emmys Opening Number Mockingly Pats Hollywood on the Back for Progress on Diversity: ‘We Solved it!’

Although the comedy category has never been stronger, featuring the likes of Atlanta, Black-ish, and GLOW (and thankfully missing The Big Bang Theory), The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel emerged as top dog of the Emmys this year, sweeping five of its six nominations. "Maisel'-triumph-at-Emmys?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_medium=AP&utm_source=Twitter" target="_blank">first streaming show to win the Emmy for an outstanding comedy series and Netflix (nflx) tied HBO for most awards, at 23 each. The programme also won statuettes for best supporting actress in a comedy, best lead actress, best writing and best directing.

Show creator Ryan Murphy dedicated the "Versace" limited series trophy to LGBT victims of hate crimes.

Borstein actually received two Emmy nods this year, with her Supporting Actress trophy bolstered by a win for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance thanks to her work on Family Guy.

Hosts for the evening Michael Che and Colin Jost opened the ceremony with jokes about alleged sexual abuse in Hollywood, following allegations against high-profile figures such as Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

From movie stars like Scarlett Johansson to TV favorites like Mandy Moore and HBO's Issa Rae the 70th annual awards ceremony proved once again to be an A-list affair for one of television's biggest nights. Our crew, they work so hard and we put them through so much and they still like us.

But on an awards ceremony that started off trying to do edgy humor about the limits of progress toward diversity, it was hard not to notice that it took quite a while to get to the first nonwhite victor in an acting category: Regina King for the Netflix limited series Seven Seconds, which will not return for a second season (as many "limited" series, in fact, do).

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.

"Even on a great show like 'Cheers, ' I loved 'Cheers, ' you're telling me they made a show about an all-white sports bar in 1980s Boston and not one black dude walked in, saw everybody, and walked right back out".

HBO, now part of AT&T, won the outstanding drama award for Game of Thrones, a fantasy epic set in the land of Westeros.

The Emmys had a real-life dramatic moment when winning director Glenn Weiss, noting his mother had died two weeks ago, proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen. Which brings us to One Day at a Time. Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, and Thandie Newton was chosen for her supporting role in sci-fi series Westworld. Jill Soloway was the most recent woman to win the comedy directing Emmy (for "Transparent") in 2016.
