Biggest Surprises and Snubs From the 2018 Emmys

Foy described working on the Netflix series as the "the most extraordinary two-and-a-half years of my life" while she dedicated the award to "the next cast, the next generation" as well as her on-screen husband Matt Smith, who looked adorably delighted with the mention.

"Writing for these actors behind us is the honour of a lifetime", said the show's co-creator David Benioff.

Others in the best drama race include FX spy thriller "The Americans", HBO's futuristic western "Westworld", Netflix favorites "The Crown" and retro sci-fi mystery "Stranger Things", and NBC family saga "This is Us".

That breaks the program's own record as the most decorated fictional show since the Television Academy first handed out prizes in 1949.

Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy, took home the Emmy for best comedy series.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented September 8 and 9.

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.

One of the biggest shocks came when presumed front-runner Glover lost the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's (T.N) showbusiness satire "Barry". "It's because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said.

But even before the duo graced the stage, their SNL co-stars Kate McKinnon and Keenan Thompson led a song-and-dance number that poked fun at how Hollywood had "solved" its diversity problems.

In the emerging battle of traditional networks versus new platforms, streaming giant Netflix and HBO ended in a dead heat at the top - at 23 Emmys each.
