George R.R. Martin Wanted Game Of Thrones To Last Way Longer

George R.R. Martin Wanted Game Of Thrones To Last Way Longer

"Maisel" became the first streaming series to win top Emmy comedy honors and HBO's "Game of Thrones" recaptured the best drama series award Monday at a ceremony that largely slighted its most ethnically diverse field of nominees ever.

"This is nuts!" Rachel Brosnahan said of being on the gold carpet at the 2018 Emmys on Monday night.

This is all to say that there were definitely some snubs and surprises at this year's Emmys, so let's talk about them.

It is Borstein's first Emmy win; she was previously nominated for an Emmy in 2013 for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for an episode of Family Guy, where she voices matriarch Lois Griffin. In addition to best drama series, the show also picked up awards like best supporting actor in a drama, which went to Peter Dinklage. The streamer walked away with 112 nominations compared to HBO's 108.

"We solved it!" sang a line-up of celebrities, giving themselves a tongue-in-cheek pat on the back for the strides television has made for women, people of color, and gay men and women behind and in front of the camera.

Auction of luxury vehicles of PM House: 61 cars sold
The 22nd premier had announced that there were 80 vehicles in possession of PM Office, however, he would retain only two of them. Forty Toyota cars which included a 2004 Lexus, a 2006 Lexus SUV, and two 2004 model Land Cruisers were also up for sale.

The biggest shock of the night came when presumed front-runner Donald Glover, the star and creator of the surreal hip-hop-inspired FX show Atlanta, lost out in the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's showbusiness satire Barry.

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.

For Netflix, "The Crown" took home the most awards with five, including best actress in a drama for Claire Foy. "If you've read my novels, you know there was enough material for more seasons".

It won nine Emmys this year, meaning the blood-spattered tale of the battle for the Iron Throne - which returns in 2019 for an abbreviated eighth and final season - now has 47 awards overall. "Tonight, I got to clear the table", an ebullient Winkler said, with an equally delighted auditorium audience rising to give him a standing ovation.
