As expected, the Emmys Awards celebrated with dignity the last controversial Game of Thrones season. Outstanding Drama Series for the HBO star, fourth statuette for Peter Dinklage and 10 technicals effects Emmys to complete the harvest – the show is unbeatable in this area. Billy Porter pocketed the Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role in Pose, making him the first black gay actor to be awarded. While The Handmaid ‘s Tale (HBO) leaves with 3 statuettes and Ozark (Netflix), 2.

Side comic serie, this was a duel between two Amazon tv shows. Fleabag wins the Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in Comedy Series for its showrunner, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Outstanding Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Mrs Maisel, overall winner last year, does not have to be ashamed, with 8 awards this year. Unfortunately, the final season of VEEP (HBO) and its actress Julia Louis Dreyfus,  were shunned by voters for the second year in a row

Finally, regarding the Miniseries or Movies category, Chernobyl (HBO) wins the competition with 10 statuettes. Fosse/Verdon (FX) wins 4 including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie who advocated for equal pay during her speech. While When They See Us (Netflix), the miniseries inspired by the story of the five young people of Central Park Five must be satisfied with 2 prizes. Demonstrating that the number one streaming platform is always shunned by the academy.
