The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was awarded top honours at the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday (17Sep18) night.

The acclaimed Amazon show was named Best Comedy Series, while star Rachel Brosnahan picked up the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series prize, Alex Borstein took home the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series gong, and Amy Sherman-Palladino picked up both the Writing and Directing for a Comedy Series awards.

Held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, the prizegiving was filled with surprises and even a few jaw-dropping moments, highlighted by director Glenn Weiss’ proposal.

He used his acceptance speech for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special for his work at the 2018 Academy Awards to ask his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen, to be his wife.

The audience stood and applauded as she made her way to the stage to accept his offer – and his late mother’s ring.

Darren Criss was awarded Best Actor in a Limited Series: Drama for his portrayal of serial killer Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and Regina King took home her third Emmy for Seven Seconds in the actress section of the category.

Best Actress in a Drama Series went to Claire Foy for her work as Queen Elizabeth II on The Crown while Matthew Rhys was given Best Actor in a Drama Series for The Americans.

As he accepted the honour, Rhys thanked his co-star and real-life girlfriend, Keri Russell, noting he would not be following in Weiss’ footsteps.

“And finally, to the woman who truly got me this award, who just stands in front of me everyday and just puts up with me. She said, ‘If you propose to me, I’ll punch you clean in the mouth,’” Rhys said as the cameras panned to Russell in the crowd.

The night concluded with Game of Thrones being awarded Best Drama Series.
