Emmys 2018: Michael Che Handed Out Reparation Emmys

The big winners at the Emmys were HBO's fantasy epic "Game of Thrones", which was named best drama series, and Amazon's breakout comedy "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel", which won eight statuettes overall.

Bill Hader collected the best comedy actor award for "Barry", a dark comedy about a hired killer who stumbles into an acting career.

Rachel Brosnahan from Highland Park and Alex Borstein from Deerfield were honored for the acclaimed Amazon series, which also won the prize for best comedy series.

Dystopian female show "The Handmaid's Tale" and FX's surreal hip-hop comedy "Atlanta" were the biggest losers, taking none of the most prestigious awards and making a disappointing night for stars Elisabeth Moss and Donald Glover.

Rachel Brosnahan stars as Miriam "Midge" Maisel, the titular character in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

In another win for Barry, Henry Winkler, 72, took hold of his first Emmy, for his role as a well-intentioned but cheesy acting coach.

He was also a close business associate of a man who US intelligence believes has ties to Russian intelligence. And now it's too late, said Trump defender and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz .

The 46-year-old gay icon, who would have been halfway to an EGOT with the award, said he wanted the show's depiction of Versace and D'Amico's 15 years as partners to "normalise relationships like this". Entertainment lawyer Skip Brittenham "said to me a long time ago, if you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you, and tonight I got to clear the table".

Netflix's trophies on Monday included five for historical drama "The Crown", including best drama actress Claire Foy, four for "Black Mirror", and three for limited series "Godless".

The dystopian sci-fi series drew 20 bids, including one for last year's best actress victor, Elisabeth Moss, and supporting bids for Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski and Joseph Fiennes. The show began with a satirical musical number on Hollywood's diversity problem, led by two stalwarts, Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon.

As Weiss accepted his award for directing the Oscars, he asked Jan Svendsen, who was sitting in the audience, to marry him. He later followed up with a post on Instagram: "Listen Boston, my grandma is racist too, but I still love her. & I still love you", he wrote. "It's because I want to call you my wife".

The wins give networks and streaming services bragging rights to use in marketing to try to make their shows stand out in a crowded TV landscape where hundreds of scripted shows, reality series and other programming fight for viewers.

Regina King was an unexpected limited series victor for playing the mother of a black teen killed by a white police officer in Seven Seconds.
