AFP AFPA look at this year’s Emmy nominees

Your general review of this year's Colin Jost/Michael Che-hosted ceremony?

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage won his third Emmy at last night's awards. He continued, "That's true". "I mean, we all do a lot of jobs, and we all work with great people and you form friendships, but many times they just tend to drift away - but this time I really feel like we're just going to all be bothering each other forever".

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

"Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels, producing his second Emmy telecast in 30 years, is tasked with turning viewership around after the 2017 show's audience of 11.4 million narrowly avoided the embarrassment of setting a new low.

One of the biggest shocks came when presumed front-runner Glover lost the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's showbusiness satire "Barry".

The gala, television´s version of the Oscars, was expected to be a showdown between record-breaking fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" and last year´s best drama victor "The Handmaid´s Tale".

More than 40 years on from his first nomination, this was his first win.

For best drama, the nominees are "GoT", "The Handmaid´s Tale", "The Americans", "Westworld", "The Crown", Netflix retro sci-fi mystery "Stranger Things", and NBC family saga "This is Us".

'Thank you, Erica, for putting up with me. "I think that probably played into my assumption the chances of me winning was so small", King said backstage.

It wasn't the only award for the HBO show either, it also won the coveted best drama award. "Because I want to call you my wife". "I'm very temperamental and I love you very much".

Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Henry Winkler, "Barry".
