The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino about a housewife who tries her luck as a comedian in 1950s NY, had a big night, taking five awards, including best comedy series.

One for the best comedy series "Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

The actress kept the hot streak alive for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", which also won supporting actress in a comedy series for Alex Borstein, and writing and directing in a comedy for Amy Sherman-Palladino.

Last year Lena Waithe made history by becoming the first African-American woman to win the comedy writing statue (she shared it with Aziz Ansari for "Master of None"), and she was the most recent female victor before Sherman-Palladino.

Case in point: one hour into its lengthy ceremony, the show had yet to present a trophy to anyone of colour.

NBC hoped that the hosts, Colin Jost and Michael Che, the anchors of Weekend Update on S.N.L.

It was the only award of the night to go to a broadcast network show, a reflection of how TV tastes have changed - and no doubt an omen for another historic ratings low for this awards show.

"We solved it", they sang.

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

Netflix won two awards for the the limited series "Godless" and two for "The Crown".

"Game" roared back after a year's hiatus to reclaim the top trophy for outstanding drama series.

Darren Criss won Best Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role in "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story". All the nominees who were up for Lead Actress in a Drama Series have done absolutely phenomenal work in the a year ago, Foy and Russell included.

"I'm so profoundly indebted to my friend Ryan Murphy for entrusting me with this opportunity of a lifetime and for believing in me", added the 31-year-old, who last year opened up about appearing in gender-defying Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

It's US TV's biggest party of the year, and this one is the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. The long-running NBC sketch show, already the top Emmy victor ever with 71, won again for best variety sketch series.

Thandie Newton won the best supporting actress in a drama statuette for her work on HBO´s futuristic western "Westworld". Director Glenn Weiss proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen, while accepting his Emmy for directing the Oscars award ceremony.
