To this day, Peter Dinklage is the only actor on Game of Thrones to win an Emmy Award for his work on the show.
"Rachel Brosnahan topped many handicappers" lists as the probable victor in the comedy lead actress category.
This is all to say that there were definitely some snubs and surprises at this year's Emmys, so let's talk about them. "Thank you so much".
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.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace took the Emmy for best-limited series and brought an acting trophy for Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997.
She also used the opportunity to rally people to vote.
"And one of the things I love the most about this show ... is that it's about a woman who is finding her voice anew, and it's something that's happening all over the country right now", Brosnahan said. She urged the audience to exercise that power by voting. Did you enjoy the 2018 Emmy Awards as a whole? To his grown children, he said: "You can go to bed now, daddy won!"
The Emmys had a real-life dramatic moment when winning director Glenn Weiss, noting his mother had died two weeks ago, proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen.
I love you, and I share this with you, because you are an fantastic, handsome brother.
"Saturday Night Live" cast members Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson did a jokey song and dance number titled "We Solved It". For example, now that Sandra Oh has been nominated, we don't have to worry about any other Asian-American actresses getting Emmy noms: "There were none, now there's one".
The ceremony clearly bore his stamp, with Che and Jost as hosts and familiar SNL faces, including Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin, as presenters and nominees.
Prior to the reveal of this year's victor, many critics put their (proverbial) money on Maisel; the quirky comedy from Gilmore Girls creator Sherman-Palladino won big at this year's Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards, with both the show and star Brosnahan taking home top honors.
