Emmys: Rachel Brosnahan Urges Hollywood Elite to Get Out the Vote

Emmys: Rachel Brosnahan Urges Hollywood Elite to Get Out the Vote

In the comedy categories, two shows dominated the competition at the Microsoft Theater: HBO dark comedy "Barry" and Amazon´s "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel", with each taking home two acting prizes.

Matthew Rhys took his first best drama actor Emmy for playing a conflicted Russian spy in the final season of the FX Cold War series The Americans.

Claire Foy beat Moss to win for her quiet but formidable portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Netflix drama "The Crown".

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said a startled Foy. Adding up its wins from last week's Creative Arts Emmys, it took home a total of nine statues.

Game of Thrones returns in 2019. That brings its grand total for the year to eight, which makes it the most awarded comedy of the year.

"Let's get it trending: #EmmysSoWhite", presenter James Corden joked at the midway point, riffing off an earlier tribute to Betty White. I'm going to go ahead and say it: "We solved it".

Listen, if all the shows that people thought should win awards for being great actually won, we wouldn't even need awards shows, we'd just hand out trophies to everyone.

Brosnahan used her acceptance speech to give a shout-out to her comedy's celebration of women power.

"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.

Alex Borstein also won the Emmy for her role in "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel". "If you stay at the table long enough the chips come to you".

Glenn Weiss won the outstanding directing for a variety special and told the audience the prize was "bittersweet" because his mother had died two weeks previously.

"You wonder why I don't like to call you my girlfriend?"

'I love you and I share this with you because you're an fantastic handsome brother.
