Amy Sherman-Palladino accepts the Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series award for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" from Emilia Clarke and Millie Bobby Brown onstage during the 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 17, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Many were excited at prospect of the potential history to be made at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, with Sandra Oh in the running to become the first Best Drama Actress victor of Asian descent for her work in Killing Eve and Donald Glover seemingly poised to become the second black man to win Best Comedy Actor twice, let alone twice in a row, for his starring role in Atlanta. 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".

Amazon´s "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel" won both for lead actress (Rachel Brosnahan) and supporting actress (Alex Borstein).

The early part of the night was dedicated to the comedy programs: sentimental favorite Henry Winkler, the Fonz in 1950s-set ABC sit-com "Happy Days", won his first Emmy for his supporting work on "Barry", a caustic tale of a hitman-turned-actor.

The father was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment, where no update was provided on his condition. When they got to the home, the woman was deceased, Chad McEwen, assistant county manager for Pender County, said.

"Maisel" edged out "Atlanta" in the nail-biter Emmy battle for Best Comedy Series, which was a neck-and-neck two-way race according to the thousands of users who made their forecasts at Gold Derby.

"Weekend Update" anchors Che and Jost regularly traffic in political satire on "SNL", and awards ceremonies have become a routine forum for celebrities to share their views on current events.

HBO and FX walked away with six and five awards, respectively, which kept streaming services from being the night's big story.

"We solved it", they sang. Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, and Thandie Newton was chosen for her supporting role in sci-fi series Westworld. All the nominees who were up for Lead Actress in a Drama Series have done absolutely phenomenal work in the a year ago, Foy and Russell included.

Hurricane Florence gaining strength as it heads toward U.S. coast
The current forecast track brings Florence on approach to the southeast USA coast on Thursday as a major and powerful hurricane. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a statement on Sunday: "Review your emergency plans and gather your supplies now".

And Game of Thrones won its third Emmy for outstanding drama series - a win for a season that didn't garner as much praise as some past cycles have.

It's US TV's biggest party of the year, and this one is the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

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. A final big Emmy win would've been the flawless send-off for The Americans, and certainly one that's absolutely merited.
