The new tv has been claimed in se Emmy award-winning series of online platforms asking for step and leaving behind open channels and, in some cases, to cable. "Veep" still reigned as Outstanding Comedy Series, marking its third consecutive win in the category at the Emmys.
There was fierce competition among a host of acclaimed first-timers, including HBO sci-fi Western show Westworld, Hulu's dystopian The Handmaid's Tale and Netflix's 1980s-set horror series Stranger Things.
Another major win for the show was Ann Dowd in the best supporting actress category. She was recognized, along with series star Aziz Ansari. To audience clapping, he continued, "I didn't know you could applaud while patting yourselves on the back". The next season will be the final so I wouldn't be surprised if she will be rewarded again for the final time.
"It's been an incredible year for women on television", said Reese Witherspoon, who co-starred in "Big Little Lies", which is based on a best-selling novel by Australian author Liane Moriarty.
Television's biggest stars dusted off their designer frocks and got suited and booted Sunday for their chance to snag the biggest prizes for the small screen. (In Canada, the show aired on Bravo and streamed on CraveTV.) Mad Men's Elizabeth Moss starred as Offred, with Orange Is the New Black's Samira Wiley playing her best friend, Moira.
Congratulations to Margaret Atwood on the success of her book the Handmaidens Tale and the basis other writing that brought so many Emmys. And then she thanked her mom.
Writer Bruce Miller credited Hulu with supporting a controversial series about a society in which women are forced into sexual servitude. All of them have valid reasons to win whether their work was great or the other nominees had vote-splitting. "We have a lot of things to fight for". His win is the first time a black actor has won the award in the 21st century; the previous time a black man won the category was in 1998, when Andre Braugher won for Homicide: Life on the Streets, according to Entertainment Weekly.
"Nineteen years ago, Detective Frank Pemberton held this joint", Brown, hoisting his Emmy and calling it his "supreme honor" to follow Braugher. "I think she is very ambitious ..."
President Donald Trump never won an Emmy, it's true. I've seen it twice and it gets better the second time around. Donald Glover won the Comedy Lead Actor award. Julia Louis-Dreyfus also maintained its title as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
The dominance of "Veep" is about to come to an end, since the HBO show is going into its final season. Kate McKinnon won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Saturday Night Live, on which she famously played Hillary Clinton; her counterpart, Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin, also won, and took an unsurprising jab at the president in his acceptance speech. "Both in person and around the world", Spicer shouted with authority, echoing his claim that Trump's inauguration crowd was the biggest ever and evoking McCarthy's manic portrayal of him. He is the star and creator of the FX show "Atlanta". I don't really remember much of it. "There would never be another season as insane, as unpredictable, as frightening, as exhausting, or as exhilarating".
