Lora Ball | 18 September, 2018, 07:46

Well, TV's biggest night of the year has arrived and as expected, it definitely did not disappoint.

George R.R. Martin (wearing cap) poses backstage with cast and crew after winning the Outstanding Drama Series award at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards for "Game of Thrones".

In fact, they all put out a great fight but, alas, only a select few rose to the top.

We're running through the night with the latest news from the 2018 Emmy Awards, hosted by Saturday Night Live writers Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

"Maisel", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy, took home the Emmy for best comedy series.

Daily aspirin may be harmful for healthy, older adults, large study finds
Many heart-healthy older people take a daily baby aspirin out of a belief that it will help prevent a heart attack or stroke. Previous studies have not shown such increases, and reductions in bowel cancer have been seen in some studies.

Of course, Brosnahan is talking about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, her hit Amazon Prime comedy that is up for 14 awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Claire Foy beat presumed front runner Elisabeth Moss, star of The Handmaid's Tale, to win for her quiet but formidable portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Netflix drama The Crown.

Rachel Brosnahan then landed Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, capping a remarkable night for the show.

Regina King was an unexpected limited series victor for playing the mother of a black teen killed by a white police officer in Seven Seconds. This was the first time Brosnahan was nominated in the category, although she was previously up for guest actress in a drama in 2015. "If you stay at the table long enough the chips come to you".
