AFP AFPA look at this year’s Emmy nominees

Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels accepts the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Sketch series.

The Saturday Night Live star and Emmy Awards co-host kicked off the evening with his girlfriend's help, and they looked so in love, you guys.

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.

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".

In the comedy categories, Mrs Maisel bested all comers in its first year of eligibility, sweeping the female acting prizes (star Rachel Brosnahan and co-star Alex Borstein) and best series honors.

Maisel, Amazon's freshman sitcom about an unhappy 1950s homemaker liberated by stand-up comedy, earned best actress honours for star Rachel Brosnahan.

Charlie Brooker's sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror was the victor of the Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special category, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story's Ryan Murphy landed the gong for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special.

Netflix this year notched a leading 112 Emmy nominations, ahead of HBO and NBC.

"I went without the bra!" she declared.

Claire Foy for The Crown wins the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series.

"Skip Brittenham said to me a long time ago, 'If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you, ' and tonight I got to clear the table".

Thandie Newton won the best supporting actress in a drama statuette for her work on HBO's futuristic western Westworld.

The gala, television´s version of the Oscars, was expected to be a showdown between record-breaking fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" and last year´s best drama victor "The Handmaid´s Tale".
