Political Emmys surprise with live proposal, grab bag of winners

One of the biggest shocks of the night came when presumed front runner Donald Glover, the star and creator of the surreal hip-hop-inspired FX show 'Atlanta, ' lost out in the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's showbusiness satire 'Barry'.

Dinklage beat his on-screen brother Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to win the award, as well as Stranger Things' David Harbour, Matt Smith (The Crown), Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale) and Mandy Patinkin (Homeland). But this year "Atlanta" was also shut out of the other big categories for which it was nominated, including comedy actor, comedy writing, comedy directing and supporting comedy actress.

So it was little surprise when she took the stage as victor for her role as an unlikely "50s era comedian in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". Here's where to find out which shows took home the awards for the likes of Best Drama and Best Comedy, to Best Lead Actor in a Drama and many more. The Handmaid's Tale - last year's best drama and an early favorite for more hardware - went home empty-handed from the event at the Microsoft Theater, having won three minor awards handed out a week ago.

After last week´s Creative Arts Emmys, HBO has won 17 statuettes to Netflix´s 16. It was clearly planned on Weiss' part, but it threw everyone else, including his new fiancee, for a loop.

After winning the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Brosnahan used her acceptance speech to ask Hollywood to vote in the upcoming election. "When we win a Golden Globe, it helps us sell more shoes", Bezos said at an industry conference in 2016.

Netflix's trophies on Monday included five for historical drama "The Crown", including best drama actress Claire Foy, four for "Black Mirror", and three for limited series "Godless". The ink appears to be very real and while it's not known when she got the tattoo, this is the first time she's debuted it on a red carpet.
