Critic's Notebook: A Not-So-Marvelous Emmy Show

19 September 2018

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino about a housewife who tries her luck as a comedian in 1950s NY, had a big night, taking five awards, including best comedy series.

Claire Foy from Netflix's "The Crown" and Matthew Rhys of "The Americans" won the top awards for best drama acting.

This year, the Emmy nominations gave Netflix the upper hand with 112 nominations.

Borstein, who grew up in Deerfield, won the supporting comedic actress award for her role as Susie Myerson, the crabby comedy club worker who encourages Maisel's talent.

But the four-time world champion should not give up hope and here are the ways he can prevail at the Marina Bay Circuit. It allowed Verstappen to try a move on Hamilton in turn 10, the only moment when Hamilton's victory was in question.

"Saturday Night Live" won the award for best variety sketch series.

The third season of Netflix's true-crime anthology documented Versace's murder by Criss's Andrew Cunanan, with its director Ryan Murphy winning the award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special for the first episode of the season, "The Man Who Would be Vogue".

The Saturday Night Live star's comments came during a comedy set with his co-host Colin Jost, who is also on the cast of SNL.

Rachel Brosnahan won the comedy actress Emmy at the 70th annual awards on Monday.

Henry Winkler, aka "The Fonz", won a supporting actor award for "Barry", four decades after gaining fame for his role in "Happy Days". Vulture complained the show was "apolitical" even with the approaching midterms and said Che and Jost's "blasé attitudes were a weird fit for an awards show."The Daily Beast proclaimed the Emmys to be a "tone-deaf embarrassment".

"Godless" supporting actor Jeff Daniels thanked his horse.

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". The show began with a satirical musical number on Hollywood's diversity problem, led by two stalwarts, Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon. The Saint Ignatius College Prep grad noted that his wife refused to join him at the Emmys because she didn't want to watch him lose.

The networks, which air the Emmy telecast on a rotating basis, are so eager for the ad dollars it generates and its promotional value for fall shows that they endure online competitors sharing - and dominating - the stage. Its home at Netflix guaranteed that it's widely available and, with the inclusion of EGOT-winner Rita Moreno, there was no reason to think it would once again earn just a single Emmy nomination (for Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series to Patricia Barnett). An obviously overwhelmed Newton exclaimed, "I don't even believe in God, but I'm going to thank her tonight".
