Who Won What at The 71st Emmy Awards

Last night’s Emmys provided a few big surprises, confirmed some things we already knew and made us remember that trying to predict awards is like trying to forecast the weather.

Jharrel Jerome became the youngest person ever to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series. He is also the first Afro-Latino to win in an acting category, beating, among others, Kit Harington.

The big surprise of the night was the Game of Thrones ladies not collecting a single award. Nothing for Lena Headey, Gwendoline Christie, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams or Emilia Clarke. However, Peter Dinklage won Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and Game of Thrones won the award for Outstanding Drama Series.

There were big wins for the Brits as well. Phoebe Waller Bridge, the writer and star of Fleabag won the award for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Writing for a Comedy Series. The show also bagged Director of a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series. Elsewhere, Jodie Comer won the award for Best Actress in a Drama Series for Killing Eve- also a Phoebe Waller Bridge vehicle. John Oliver scooped an award for Writing for a Variety Series with the consistently brilliant Last Week Tonight.

Chernobyl, HBO’s brilliant mini-series won Outstanding Limited Series, Writing for a Limited Series and Directing for a Limited Series.

Jason Bateman’s Ozark picked up two awards: Bateman himself getting the nod for Directing for a Drama Series and Julia Garner’s portrayal of Ruth Langmore was honoured with Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Beating four different Game of Thrones heroines, Garner's character becomes perhaps the only person to go up against the Starks, the Lannisters and Brienne of Tarth and come out on top.

Despite being nominated multiple times across different categories, Game of Thrones went home with two awards on the night. This means it equalled, rather than broke, its own record of 13 wins over the course of the The Creative Arts Emmys and The Primetime Emmy Awards.

There were also awards for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Saturday Night Live and, almost inevitably a Writing for a Drama award for Jesse Armstong's work on Succession. There's a full list of winners below:
