The 71st edition of the biggest night in prime time television took place last night, and in case you missed it, here’s a breakdown of the biggest winners on the night:
The 5-episode drama about the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant beat Netflix’s “When They See Us” to the award for the best limited series.
Acting as Ruth Langmore in Ozark, Garner edged Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Gwendoline Christie & Sophie Turner of Game of Thrones to win Outstanding Supporting Actress.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The 8-season show, HBO’s flagship series walked away with yet another award after the conclusion of its final season. Notable nominations include Ozark, Pose, Bodyguard, and Succession.
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)
For the killer performances as Oksana Astankova, Jodie Comer took home a trophy, beating fellow cast member Sandra Oh, Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Robin Wright (House of Cards) and Laura Linney (Ozark).
History made as Billy Porter became the first openly gay man to win the Emmy for best actor in a drama.
Arquette won for her performance in The Act, beating Marsha Stephanie Blake & Vera Farmiga of When They See Us, and Chernobyl’s Emily Watson.
After his brilliant performance as Korey Wise, it’s no surprise that Jerome took this one home.
HBO’s John Oliver beat Saturday Night Live and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
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.
There you have it, the big winners of the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards. Are you happy with the outcomes?
