Focus on Hollywood’s diversity at Emmy Awards

70th Primetime Emmy Awards- Show- Los Angeles California U.S Emmys Opening Number Mockingly Pats Hollywood on the Back for Progress on Diversity: ‘We Solved it!’

This is the first series Emmy win for Amazon, which had had success with the series "Transparent" but ultimately lost out to the yearly dominance of HBO's "Veep" in the comedy category.

In another win for streaming services, Prime Video's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel nabbed the 2018 Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

The 57-year-old director, who received the Emmy award for The Oscars, had already made people emotional after speaking about the recent death of his mother.

The 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards nabbed a 7.4 overnight rating for NBC.

Rachel Bosnahan scooped Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in "The Marvellous Mrs Maisel".

HBO's "Game of Thrones" was named best drama series, beating last year's champion 'The Handmaid's Tale'.

Dani Alves believes Real Madrid are more risky without Cristiano Ronaldo
bet365's Steve Freeth said "He may have left long-time holders Real Madrid and be advancing in years, but Ronaldo still has plenty of pulling power as far as punters are concerned".

"The Assassination of Gianni Versace" star Criss, who is of Filipino descent and is the second Asian-American actor to claim an acting award after Riz Ahmed's win previous year for "The Night After". African Americans had actually swept guest acting categories at the earlier Creative Arts Emmys, but by the time Regina King and Thandie Newton were recognized, presenter James Corden felt inspired to joke about an #EmmysSoWhite hashtag. Scarlett Johansson walked alongside him as they made their Emmys debut on the gold carpet for Monday's show. The victor is Claire Foy from "The Crown"! At the end of the award weekend, bot HBO and Netflix left with 23 awards each. And even if they were, this year's show - its highlights notwithstanding - certainly wouldn't be a candidate to land one. There's an inevitability to it. Bateman and Daniel Sackheim both came short to Stephen Daldry who won Directing for a Drama Series for "The Crown". He proposed to his girlfriend on stage, and she accepted.

Saturday Night Live won, as expected, for variety sketch series, taking its lifetime Emmy total to a record-setting 72 wins.

As expected, Darren Criss won the star-studded race for best actor in a limited series or movie for his searing work on FX´s "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" as the designer´s killer Andrew Cunanan. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Game of Thrones won the top awards.

Game of Thrones didn't clean up quite as thoroughly at this Emmys as it did at the last couple where it was eligible.

So what have we learned? The tune included a mention of Oh's possible victory: "There were none, now there's one, so we're done", the comedians sang.
