Emmy Awards 2018: The Winners List

Entertainment

This year in 70th Prime time Emmy Awards, it looked like a battle between two TV titans. In one corner was established TV powerhouse HBO, which went into the evening with 29 Emmy nominations for shows like WestworldSilicon ValleyGame of Thrones, and Insecure. In the other was Netflix, with a whopping 37 total nominations, thanks to show like Black MirrorStranger ThingsGLOW, and The Crown. But while HBO ultimately took home the top honor for Outstanding Drama Series for Game of Thrones, for much of the evening it seemed like another player had most of the momentum: Amazon.

The evening began with Amazon winning four of the first five awards presented, for its period comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Over the course of the evening, the series won five different categories, including writing and directing awards for series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, and acting awards for series stars Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein. It ended the evening by taking home Outstanding Comedy Series, the top honor of the night for a comedy series.

Jeff Daniels and Merritt Wever won acting awards for their work in the Scott Frank Western Godless, William Bridges and Charlie Brooker won Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series or Movie for the Black Mirror installment USS Callister, and actress Regina King won for her performance in the series Seven SecondsThe Crown won two awards Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for Claire Foy and Outstanding Directing for Stephen Daldry but Netflix’s wins were ultimately piecemeal. It spoke to the power of the company’s strategy of producing such an immense amount of content. Even when no single show became a juggernaut in its own right, Netflix still racked up a respectable number of wins.

Ryan Murphy’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story took home several awards, as did the FX espionage drama The Americans, the latter of which seemed poised to take home the top honor of Outstanding Drama Series. But instead, HBO’s Game of Thrones came in with the surprise win, taking the top prize even though it had only earned one other award over the course of the evening: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage.
