HBO did take home the big prize of the night, as "Game of Thrones" won for best drama series, beating last year's victor, "The Handmaid's Tale", which made streaming history for Hulu at the time. The show is in the running for outstanding comedy, along with "Barry", "Black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "GLOW", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". And Alex Borstein, who won in the supporting category for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, started by announcing she wasn't wearing a bra and asking other women not to pee on the seats of public toilets.

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series goes to Henry Winkler, for his role in Barry. One of the most important ways that we can find and use our voices is to vote.

Emmy awards sit before being presented to recipients. American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace won in the limited series category.

It took an impromptu wedding proposal, by an Oscar-show director unknown to most viewers, to bring emotional spontaneity and surprise to a stubbornly unfunny, leaden broadcast.

"Skip Brittenham said to me a long time ago, 'If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you, ' and tonight I got to clear the table".

Glenn Weiss, victor of the outstanding directing for a variety special award, proposes marriage to Jan Svendsen.

The fantasy series "Game of Thrones" took home television's top honor on Monday night, winning the best drama category at the 70th Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. "She says she doesn't like watching white award shows because you guys don't thank Jesus enough", co-host Michael Che of Saturday Night Live fame said.

The stars were shining bright at the 70th Annual Emmy Awards Monday night (Sept. 17) from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, and Thandie Newton was chosen for her supporting role in sci-fi series Westworld.

"The reason I don't like calling you my girlfriend is because I want to call you my wife", he said, leaving everyone bewildered. Congratulations! Watch showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss and executive producer Bernadette Caulfield give their acceptance speech below, flanked by members of the cast and crew, plus George R.R. Martin himself! Matthew joked that Keri Russell told him, "If you propose to me I will punch you clean in the mouth!"

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. "They have been incredible, whether we wanted to do a story about trade policy or about Russell Crowe's jock strap".
