HBO and Netflix tied with the most Emmy wins in 2018.

"Maisel" became the first streaming series to win top Emmy comedy honors and HBO's "Game of Thrones" recaptured the best drama series award Monday at a ceremony that largely slighted its most ethnically diverse field of nominees ever.

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. "Mrs. Maisel" also won a total of seven other awards, including best actress for Rachel Brosnahan. It's the first time the Television Academy selected a TV series from a streaming service in this category.

'Very hard for me' to believe Kavanaugh accuser
He asked why Feinstein (D-Calif.) didn't bring up the accusations when Senate Democrats and Kavanaugh met privately in August. He told reporters that he feels "so badly for" Kavanaugh and that "this is not a man that deserves this".


Best Drama Actress switched from Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale") to Claire Foy ("The Crown").

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented September 8 and 9.

Marketers in the audience who may want to take advantage of the success of Emmy winners like "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" are, of course, out of luck, as advertising on the service thus far has been limited to a handful of brand integrations and some avails in its National Football League simulcasts.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace took the Emmy for best limited series and brought an acting trophy for Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997.

Che said it was great to celebrate with all of Hollywood, or at least, the people "who haven't gotten caught yet", and Jost later said that Netflix's huge number of nominations was the worst thing a network executive could hear, "Except maybe, 'Sir, Ronan Farrow is on Line 1'". "It's because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said.

Other big winners Monday night were Bill Hader who won outstanding comedy actor for his series "Barry" and outstanding drama actor victor Matthew Rhys for "The Americans".
