‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ Among Big Winners at 70th Emmys

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards have come and gone, and with it there were plenty of surprises.

Among a few of the show’s highlights was a tribute to Betty White. “Godless” saw a lot of love for its performances, while “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” won big for Limited Series.

On the comedy side, Henry Winkler won his first Emmy for his supporting role in “Barry.” Winkler won 43 years after his first nomination. His co-star, Bill Hader, won Outstanding Lead Actor. Co-stars Alex Borstein and Rachel Brosnahan also won for their comedy performances for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The drama prizes were spread around to several shows. “The Americans” pulled off two wins, for writing, and for Matthew Rhys as Lead Actor. Thandie Newton won for her supporting work on “Westworld,” and Claire Foy‘s final appearance in “The Crown” scored her the Lead Actress prize. And Peter Dinklage won again for his supporting role on repeat Drama Series winner “Game of Thrones.

RuPaul’s Drag Race” thrilled with its win for Reality Competition Series and John Oliver accepted the prize for Variety Talk Series.
