In addition to the two shows mentioned above, the nominees for Outstanding Comedy Series at Sunday's Emmys included FX's Atlanta, ABC's black-ish, HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Netflix's GLOW, Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and HBO's Silicon Valley. Did you enjoy the 2018 Emmy Awards as a whole?

Rachel Brosnahan was named best comedy actress, while Alex Bornstein, who plays her determined manager, won for her supporting role.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said a startled Foy.

Amazon's "Maisel" is the first streaming series ever to win Best Comedy, and it's only the second hour-long show to take the prize, following "Ally McBeal" in 1999. Hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, the telecast aired live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.

"I wrote this (speech) 43 years ago", said the former "Happy Days" actor, who had been nominated six times previously.
