The 2018 Emmy Award Winners

The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out on Monday night with HBO’s “Game of Thrones” taking the top honor of best drama series, Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” nabbing best comedy series, and FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” taking best limited series.

All three won multiple awards across several categories, as did FX’s “The Americans,” HBO’s “Barry” and Netflix’s “The Crown,” and “Godless” while “Westworld,” “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “Black Mirror” also took single award honors. Notable snubs that missed out included last year’s big winner “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Twin Peaks: The Return,” “Atlanta,” “Killing Eve” and acclaimed telemovie “The Tale”.
