Game of Thrones, Mrs. Maisel triumph at Emmys

George RR Martin Wants 'Game Of Thrones' To Last More Seasons Game of Thrones, Mrs. Maisel triumph at Emmys

Monday night was the 70th Emmy Awards!

The cast poses backstage with their Outstanding Comedy Series award for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". Last year's drama series victor racked up a number of acting trophies, too, but this year it lost the major categories - from drama series on down through the lead and supporting acting categories.

In the writing category, Sherman-Palladino topped Glover again, as well as Stefani Robinson ("Atlanta"), Alec Berg ("Silicon Valley"), Alec Berg and Bill Hader ("Barry") and Liz Sarnoff ("Barry").

The two have known each other since 2006, when Jost was a first-year SNL writer, and Johansson had her first hosting gig, Jost told Entertainment Tonight in September 2017. Jill Soloway was the most recent woman to win the comedy directing Emmy (for "Transparent") in 2016.

At the most prestigious awards show in United States television, Welsh star Matthew Rhys won the lead actor in a drama series prize for his role in FX's The Americans, while English actress Claire Foy scooped the equivalent award in the female category for her portrayal of the Queen in Netflix's The Crown. The tattoo was first spotted on the set of The Avengers a year ago but reports stated it was fake - Johansson's latest appearance proves otherwise.

Thandie Newton won the best supporting actress in a drama statuette for her work on HBO's futuristic western Westworld. While she did not directly address the diversity issue that ruled much of the night's onstage banter, she announced she was going to take advantage of having a captive audience for a couple of seconds to say how proud she is to be playing "a woman who is finding her voice, something that is happening all over the country right now".

I love you, and I share this with you, because you are an fantastic, handsome brother. "You go away for as long as you need, ' and we've all been just trying to be a bench stop for her". "It's because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said.

Stay tuned here for all the best red carpet looks of the 2018 Emmy Awards.

"We solved it!" crooned Saturday Night Live nominees Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson, with back-up from pop stars John Legend and Ricky Martin - and even RuPaul. It marked the first time a streaming service had won in the category.
