Here Are Your 2019 Emmy Award Winners

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards spread the wealth, with old standbys like Saturday Night Live sharing the stage with critically beloved newcomers like Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, which upset both Veep and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and dashed Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ hopes at a record ninth Emmy win, at least for now. (Sorry, first-time nominee Schitt’s Creekmaybe next time.) The tepid reviews and mixed fan reaction didn’t stop Game of Thrones’ final season from taking home Best Drama, although it also racked up one of the night’s most surprising losses, falling to Ozark in the Best Directing for a Drama Series category. The Emmys like it dark, but not that dark.
