The spendthrift Netflix beat out HBO for bragging rights for the most Emmy wins, racking up seven trophies to the premium cable net's half-dozen.

Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost and Michael Che kicked off the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards with a monologue that leaned heavily on the rapport the pair have built as co-hosts of SNL's Weekend Update segment.

And yes, "Game of Thrones" did win Best Drama Series for the third time this year, but voters could have easily stuck with "The Handmaid's Tale" after its victory in 2017.

Awards shows in general have faced big drops in audience.

HBO, which had ceded its top-dog status in total nominations for the first time in 17 years in July (108, to Netflix's 112), ended up in a tie for wins with the streaming service at 23 each.

In the comedy categories, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel bested all comers in its first year of eligibility, sweeping the female acting prizes (star Rachel Brosnahan and co-star Alex Borstein) and best series honours.

Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy, took home the Emmy for best comedy series.

Other big winners included "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", for best limited series and actor Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997.

"I don't even believe in God, but I am going to thank her tonight", Newton said.

The Emmys had a real-life dramatic moment when winning director Glenn Weiss, noting his mother had died two weeks ago, proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen. "Because I want to call you my wife", he added to cheers, applause and a few teary-eyed actors in the audience.

Other big winners Monday night were Bill Hader who won outstanding comedy actor for his series "Barry" and outstanding drama actor victor Matthew Rhys for "The Americans".
