Emmy Awards: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel becomes the first streaming series to win top comedy honors

Updated : 2018-09-18 13:09:04

Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel became the first streaming series to win top Emmy comedy honors and HBO's Game of Thrones recaptured the best drama series award Monday at a ceremony that largely slighted its most ethnically diverse field of nominees ever.

With the exception of "Saturday Night Live," broadcast shows were shut out of the top awards as 21st-century platforms continued to overshadow traditional network fare like This Is Us.
