Mrs Maisel, Game of Thrones win top Emmys

Claire Foy, Emmys 2018 Winner — The Crown Wins Emmy

Claire Foy Crowned With Drama Actress Emmy

HBO's medieval fantasy "Game of Thrones" won a total of nine Emmys, including technical awards for special effects and stunts, and was named best drama series for a third time, beating last year's champion "The Handmaid's Tale".

"Maisel" also won the Emmy award for outstanding comedy series.

Michael Che and Colin Jost of "Saturday Night Live" hosted the awards show on NBC.

Senator says committee should hear Kavanaugh accuser's side of story before vote
While his friend watched, Ford said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes. Republicans control a majority in the Senate and thus can approve his nomination with a majority of votes.

In his acceptance speech, Mr. Dinklage said, "Thank you, Dave and Dan [the show's creators], for changing my life". I can not walk down the street anymore, ' Dinklage enthused while accepting his third Emmy.

That's how you get shows like "Modern Family" and "Mad Men" and actors like Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") that win over and over (and over and over) again. That was George R.R. Martin. So were the Emmys destined to become a popularity contest with results more like the SAG Awards, where we often see results like seven straight wins for Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock")? But in 2018 the television academy bucked that trend by mostly rejecting repeat winners in favor of first-time champs.

"Maisel", a freshman sitcom about an unhappy 1950s homemaker liberated by stand-up comedy, earned best actress honors for star Rachel Brosnahan.

Earlier this year, Mrs Maisel won two Golden Globes. "Hope you're excited about that - because the one thing Hollywood needs right now is a bunch of people losing their inhibitions at a work function", Jost said to hearty laughs.

In a big upset, Bill Hader ("Barry") defeated 2017 victor Donald Glover ("Atlanta") for Best Comedy Actor.

The Emmys kicked off with a song, "We Solved It", a self-mocking celebration to the diversity of nominees sung by stars including Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson.
