“Fleabag” and Phoebe Waller-Bridge the toast of the Emmys

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards have produced a few upsets.

“Fleabag” was the bigger winner on the night, taking out Best Comedy, with star Phoebe Waller-Bridge winning both Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

The popular comedy picked up its fourth gong as Harry Bradbeer scooped the award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

There was great adulation, but perhaps little surprise, as “Game of Thrones” notched its fourth Emmy for Best Drama Series after the show drew a line under eight incredible seasons earlier this year.

Check out the must-see red carpet looks from this year’s awards.

It was a night to celebrate for the cast of the twisted dark drama “Ozark”, as Jason Bateman and Julia Garner picked up Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series respectively.

There were huge cheers for “Killing Eve”‘s Jodie Conner who won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, pipping fellow nominee and co-star Sandra Oh to the coveted prize.

An emotional Billy Porter took out the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, becoming the first-ever openly gay man to win that category thanks to his performance in “Pose.”

“The category is love, y’all love,” he announced as he accepted the award.

After being widely tipped to dominate the awards, Julia Louis-Dreyfus failed to make history, missing out on a ninth Emmy that would have surpassed the record eight she shares with Cloris Leachman.

She was in line for a sweep of awards thanks to her leading role in Veep, which has a staggering 68 Emmy nominations to its name, including nine at this year’s ceremony.
