  • Emmy Awards celebrate best of television with Game of Thrones, Westworld leading nominations

These snubbed shows may have been ripped off by the Emmys, but they won't go unnoticed by us.

The field bested by Foy included last year's victor Elisabeth Moss for "The Handmaid's Tale" and Sandra Oh of "Killing Eve", who would have been the first actor of Asian descent to get a top drama award.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said a surprised Foy.

All told, the following seven shows were up for the major honor during Sunday's ceremony: FX's The Americans, Netflix's The Crown, HBO's Game of Thrones, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, Netflix's Stranger Things, NBC's This Is Us and HBO's Westworld.

Writer-producer D.B. Weiss (C-L) and the cast of "Game of Thrones" accept the award Outstanding Drama series onstage during the 70th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on 17 September 2018. That brings its grand total for the year to eight, which makes it the most awarded comedy of the year.

"Let's get it trending: #EmmysSoWhite", presenter James Corden joked at the midway point, riffing off an earlier tribute to Betty White.


She was followed by Darren Criss, who won the lead acting award for the miniseries "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" and who is of Filipino descent.

Matthew Rhys won for best drama actor for spy thriller The Americans, Claire Foy was named best drama actress for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown and Henry Winkler triumphed for supporting comedy acting on Barry. She also used the stage to encourage women to sit while they pee, to avoid splashing. She urged viewers to exercise that power by voting.

Bill Hader won the lead comedy actor trophy in his first time nominated in the category.

Streaming service Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) and premium cable channel HBO battled to a tie at Monday's Emmy awards ceremony, with each taking home 23 of the television industry's top honors, though HBO scored the prestigious best drama prize. "You go away for as long as you need, ' and we've all been just trying to be a bench stop for her".

"I don't even believe in God, but I am going to thank her tonight", Newton said.
