"Game of Thrones" led the way, winning 12 Emmys and Amazon Prime series, "Fleabag," won for best comedic series, during the 71st Emmy Awards on Sunday night.
"Game of Thrones," which ended its final season on HBO on a controversial note, won for best drama series and best supporting actor for Peter Dinklage. The series was just ahead of another HBO favorite, "Chernobyl," which won 10 awards, including best limited series, directing for a limited series, and writing for a limited series.
"Fleabag," the British comedy-drama, won the most awards for a comedy, with creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge taking home best actress, and the show getting wins for best writing, best directing, and best comedy series.
Other streaming platform wins went to Netflix's "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch" for best television movie, while Amazon's Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won best supporting actor and actress in a comedy for co-stars Tony Shalhoub and Alex Borstein.
Michelle Williams won best actress in a limited series for FX's "Fosse/Verdon." In her acceptance speech, she not only thanked FX for giving her equal pay but encouraged others to do so, too.
"Next time a woman — and especially a woman of color, because she stands to make 52 cents on the dollar compared to her white male counterpart — tells you what she needs in order to do her job, listen to her, believe her."
Jason Bateman won best directing in a drama for Netflix series "Ozark," beating out three nominations for "Game of Thrones," including an episode directed by creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. No one was more surprised than Bateman, and Twitter had a bit of a field day with his shocked reaction.
That candid reaction tho.— Akhil (@ahKill__) September 23, 2019
