Tonight, the tradition continues, as Dinklage picked up his third Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama.

SURPRISE: Merritt Wever won the supporting actress in a limited series or TV movie category, and although she was a prior victor - in 2013 for "Nurse Jackie" - this one was unexpected for her.

Alex Bornstein, who plays her determined manager, won for her supporting role, and Mrs Maisel also collected trophies for comedy series writing and directing.

She was followed by Darren Criss, who won the lead acting award for the miniseries The Assassination of Gianni Versace and who is of Filipino descent.

Thandie Newton won the best supporting actress in a drama statuette for her work on HBO's futuristic western Westworld. But it proved undeniable with 14 total nominations, the most ever for an Amazon series in a single year and second only to "Atlanta" (16) as the most nominated comedy of the year. "If you stay at the table long enough the chips come to you".

A surprise marriage proposal from Emmy-winning director Glenn Weiss won over the audience - and the internet.
