* The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel leads the pack with five Emmys
* Game of Thrones continues strong run with “Best Drama” win
* RuPaul surprises with “Best Reality Competition” win
TV’s biggest night lived up to its title Monday, as the 2018 Emmy Awards were handed out in Los Angeles. Amazon’s critically-acclaimed series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, took home five trophies, including a “Best Comedy Series” win, while HBO’s Game of Thrones took home “Best Drama” against very stiff competition.
In another surprise win, Regina King beat out Sarah Paulson (from American Horror Story), Laura Dern, Jessica Biel and Edie Falco to score an upset victory for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, while RuPaul beat out perennial faves like The Voice and Project Runway to take home the Emmy for Best Reality Competition.
Amid another controversial year for Hollywood, hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che managed to dole out a few zingers while still keeping the mood light in their opening monologue. With Netflix leading the pack with a whopping 112 nominations, far surpassing any major television network, Jost and Che even had a punchline for the very medium the Emmys were supposedly celebrating. “TV has come a long way in the past 70 years,” Che said, before Jost added, “With the amazing contributions from everyone in this room tonight, I think we can keep television going for another five, six years tops.”
