4. Peter Dinklage – Supporting Actor (Game of Thrones)

Another unsurprising victory for the GOT cast, Dinklage beat his fellow cast-mates Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Alfie Allen to the award. Notable nomination: Michael Kelly (House of Cards)

5. Jodie Comer – Lead Actress: Drama Series (Killing Eve)

6. Billy Porter – Lead Actor: Drama Series (Pose)

History made as Billy Porter became the first openly gay man to win the Emmy for best actor in a drama.

7. Patricia Arquette – Supporting Actress: Limited Series (The Act)

Arquette won for her performance in The Act, beating Marsha Stephanie Blake & Vera Farmiga of When They See Us, and Chernobyl’s Emily Watson.

8. Jharrel Jerome – Lead Actor: Limited Series/Movie (When They See Us)

After his brilliant performance as Korey Wise, it’s no surprise that Jerome took this one home.

9. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – Writing: Variety Series

HBO’s John Oliver beat Saturday Night Live and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

10. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch – Television Movie

Though it had no competition in this category, Netflix changed the game with this interactive movie extension of the sci-fi hit, Black Mirror. The movie was released in December last year and received positive reviews worldwide.
