Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Emmys 2018 Winner - Outstanding Comedy Series

Emmys preview The five races we'll be watching on television's big night

The 70th Emmy Awards, television's equivalent of the Oscars, opened Monday with an edgy flurry of jokes about diversity in Hollywood, Donald Trump, race and the pervasive issue of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

Mrs Maisel is also a front-runner for best comedy series, which will be presented at the end of the three-hour awards show.

So it was little surprise when she took the stage as victor for her role as an unlikely "50s era comedian in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel".

Johansson arrived to the red carpet with her SNL star boyfriend Colin Jost, who would later be co-hosting the Emmys with his Weekend Update co-anchor Michael Che. "Maisel" also won four other awards during the Emmys telecast on September 17: Best Comedy Actress (Rachel Brosnahan), Best Comedy Supporting Actress (Alex Borstein), and Best Comedy Writing and Best Comedy Directing (Amy Sherman-Palladino for the pilot).

The cast of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" poses backstage with their Outstanding Limited Series award.

For example, now that Sandra Oh has been nominated, we don't have to worry about any other Asian-American actresses getting Emmy noms: "There were none, now there's one".

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series goes to Henry Winkler, for his role in Barry.

"I went without the bra!" she declared. No surprise there, as the veteran actor - best known for playing Fonzie in Happy Days - was a firm favourite.

Amazon's (AMZN.O) "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy, took home the Emmy for best comedy series. "If you stay at the table long enough the chips come to you".

When nominations were announced in July, hit fantasy series Game of Thrones led total nominations with 22 in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21).

In another win for Netflix, Regina King received the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie award for Seven Seconds. "Rachel is very like her character, she was able to persevere through it, but they actually said, 'Why don't you take a little time for yourself?'"
