Amazon And Netflix Make History At The 2018 Emmy Awards

  • Both shows have already picked up some Emmys hardware

The other big story of the Hollywood gala, television's answer to the Oscars, was the huge success of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Amazon's story of a 1950s housewife-turned-stand up comic, which took home eight Emmys overall, including the best comedy award.

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 things I love the most about this show.it's about a woman who is finding her voice anew", Ms. Brosnahan said.

"If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you".

Winkler was nominated three times for his work on "Happy Days", in 1976, 1977 and 1978.

"Tonight I got to clear the table", he said.

Florence, a wet and unwanted visitor, besieges Carolinas
A state of emergency was declared in five coastal states - North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland and Virginia. The Miami-based center says Florence is bringing "catastrophic" fresh water flooding over a wide area of the Carolinas.

While last year's show was heavy on anti-Donald Trump commentary from the liberal Colbert-and featured a widely panned cameo by ex-White House press secretary Sean Spicer-the 2018 Emmys hosted by Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost largely stayed away from explicit partisan politics. So thank you, Erica, for putting up with me.

Major award shows have been losing ground with the public.

The Emmys kicked off with a song, "We Solved It", a self-mocking celebration to the diversity of nominees sung by stars including Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson.

Other big winners Monday night were Bill Hader who won outstanding comedy actor for his series "Barry" and outstanding drama actor victor Matthew Rhys for "The Americans". The views expressed in this commentary are exclusively hers.

The networks, which air the Emmy telecast on a rotating basis, are so eager for the ad dollars it generates and its promotional value for fall shows that they endure online competitors sharing - and dominating - the stage.
