Political Emmys surprise with live proposal, grab bag of winners

Game Of Thrones squares off agains The Handmaid's Tale at the Emmys

"Maisel" edged out "Atlanta" in the nail-biter Emmy battle for Best Comedy Series, which was a neck-and-neck two-way race according to the thousands of users who made their forecasts at Gold Derby.

OK, there was a minor onstage tussle with presenter Tiffany Haddish who tried to wrest away Brosnahan's Emmy statuette, but it was clearly all in fun.

Jost was of course taking a crack at the lengthy-and ongoing-hiatus between Thrones' seventh and eighth seasons.

Game of Thrones has more Emmy nominations than any scripted series ever (129), and it also has more wins (38).

Matthew Rhys won for Best Drama Actor for spy thriller The Americans, Claire Foy was named Best Drama Actress for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown and Henry Winkler triumphed for Supporting Comedy Acting on Barry.

Saturday Night Live won the award for best variety sketch series. "You go away for as long as you need, ' and we've all been just trying to be a bench stop for her". It's her third Emmy win in four years.

After a conventional series of thank you's in her acceptance speech, she noted that she's playing a woman who "finds her voice anew" and urged viewers to use their own voices in the voting booth - and to bring a friend.

Saturday Night Live comedians Michael Che and Colin Jost sprinkled the evening with satirical skits about increases in diversity on television, sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, and the dominance of streaming services like Amazon and Netflix over traditional networks.
