KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"Maisel" had a pretty - dare we say - marvelous night at the 2018 Emmy Awards.

HBO, which had ceded its top-dog status in total nominations for the first time in 17 years in July (108, to Netflix's 112), ended up in a tie for wins with the streaming service at 23 each.

"Maisel" led the pack this year on the comedy side of things, winning eight of the 14 categories it was nominated in - including outstanding writing and direction for a comedy series and a lead actress win for star Rachel Brosnahan.

An African-American sweep of guest series actor awards at the recent creative arts Emmys suggested big changes ahead for the awards, which only recently have given significant honors to performers and creators of color.

Claire Foy beat presumed front runner Elisabeth Moss, star of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, to win for her quiet but formidable portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Netflix drama The Crown.

The first awards of the night went to sentimental favorite Henry Winkler - the Fonz himself - for best supporting actor in a comedy for "Barry", and to Alex Borstein for Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel".

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.

"I don't even believe in God, but I am going to thank her tonight", Newton said. Though I guess you could call that rubber-stamping too since it was King's third win in four years - without a doubt this new voting system has been especially kind to the veteran actress.

The Emmys opened with a daring song-and-dance number poking fun at myriad controversies, including the problem of ensuring diversity in Hollywood productions.

The long-running NBC sketch show, already the top Emmy victor ever with 71, won again for best variety sketch series.

The rest of the night was a big-budget promo reel for the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO and the elite basic cable network FX.
