Emmy full of upsets. Marvelous Mrs Maisel dominates

"You guys have been nothing but supportive from the very beginning".

After the first awards were given Che noted, "Six awards, all white winners".

This is the first series Emmy win for Amazon, which had had success with the series "Transparent" but ultimately lost out to the yearly dominance of HBO's "Veep" in the comedy category.

Bill Hader collected the best comedy actor award for "Barry", a dark comedy about a hired killer who stumbles into an acting career.

The focus on diversity became ironic as the night wore on, with one white person after another delivering acceptance speeches.

HBO's "Game of Thrones" took the top spot of Best Drama Series from "Stranger Things" as well as Supporting Actor in Drama Series going to Peter Dinklage over David Harbour.

In another win for Netflix, Regina King received the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie award for Seven Seconds.

After last week´s Creative Arts Emmys, HBO has won 17 statuettes to Netflix´s 16. Networks see live events such as awards shows and sports games as one of their last areas of advantage over streaming competitors, and they rely on such events to pull in ad dollars and to promote their own content.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" has won four awards in total, including supporting actress for Alex Borstein and lead actress for Rachel Brosnahan, in addition to Sherman-Palladino's wins. The victor is Claire Foy from "The Crown"! Atlanta, which has an embarrassment of riches in its cast, including some of the most sought-after young actors in Hollywood at the moment, was shut out of the major awards entirely. There's an inevitability to it. He proposed to his girlfriend on stage, and she accepted.

"Come Back, Barack", a sketch that was featured on a November "Saturday Night Live" episode hosted by Chicago's Chance the Rapper, won for original music and lyrics. Along with Criss' success, The Assassination of Gianni Versace was awarded Outstanding Limited Series, and Murphy himself took home the prize for Outstanding Directing. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino picked up bookends for writing and directing. In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO also earned awards for the comedy Barry, the drama Westworld and topical comedy show Last Week Tonight.

So what have we learned?

As a outcome, the breezy tone and ebullient moments - which began with a promising song-and-dance number about strides in diversity within the TV industry, cheekily titled "We solved it" - gave way to lethargy and clunky ones.
