‘Mrs. Maisel’ Emmy Winner Rachel Brosnahan To Viewers: "Vote!"

| 18 September, 2018, 09:57

They then yielded the stage to hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, who are also regulars on the veteran NBC comedy sketch show - and let the zingers fly.

But the coveted drama prize went to Game Of Thrones, which was ineligible for last year's Emmys. "The show could not be without the mad genius of George".

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles and provided one of the most memorable moments in recent awards show history when a director popped the question during his acceptance speech.

"And one of the things I love the most about this show ... is that it's about a woman who is finding her voice anew, and it's something that's happening all over the country right now", Brosnahan said.

"Thank you to Netflix for your support of artists", Jeff Daniels, a supporting actor victor for Godless, said as he accepted his award.

Last year Lena Waithe made history by becoming the first African-American woman to win the comedy writing statue (she shared it with Aziz Ansari for "Master of None"), and she was the most recent female victor before Sherman-Palladino.


They were joined by Ricky Martin, RuPaul, Kristen Bell, Tituss Burgess, Sterling K. Brown and Andy Samberg to point out all the ways Hollywood had overcome a lack of inclusion - and yet not.

Looking to boost audience ratings, organizers said they were hoping to shake up the format - and indeed they did, intentionally and unintentionally. "Because I want to call you my wife".

The early part of the night was dedicated to the comedy programs: sentimental favorite Henry Winkler, the Fonz in 1950s-set ABC sit-com "Happy Days", won his first Emmy for his supporting work on "Barry", a caustic tale of a hitman-turned-actor.

"I think we can keep TV going for another 5-6 years tops", Jost quipped.

Thandie Newton won best supporting drama actress for Westworld, and Peter Dinklage added a third trophy to his collection for Game of Thrones. Netflix won 16, and NBC took 15.
