'Mrs. Maisel,' 'Game of Thrones' win on night of Emmy upsets

‘Mrs. Maisel’, ‘Game of Thrones’ win top Emmy honours Emmys go to North Shore’s Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein for ‘Mrs. Maisel’

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel creator Amy Sherman-Palladino led the individual awards with four, followed, with three each, by Late Late Show host and producer James Corden and Amy Entelis, executive producer of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown and United Shades Of America With W. Kamau Bell. So were the Emmys destined to become a popularity contest with results more like the SAG Awards, where we often see results like seven straight wins for Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock")?

As streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime increasingly make off with the lion's share of the Emmy Awards accolades, the TV industry's annual celebration of itself continues to shed viewers.

"Maisel", a freshman sitcom about an unhappy 1950s homemaker liberated by stand-up comedy, earned best actress honors for star Rachel Brosnahan.

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. Both won 23, including the Creative Arts Emmys.

Marketers in the audience who may want to take advantage of the success of Emmy winners like "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" are, of course, out of luck, as advertising on the service thus far has been limited to a handful of brand integrations and some avails in its National Football League simulcasts.

The Emmys had a real-life dramatic moment when winning director Glenn Weiss, noting his mother had died two weeks ago, proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen.

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. "Because I want to call you my wife", he added to cheers, applause and a few teary-eyed actors in the audience.
