The Primetime Emmy's Best Drama went to HBO's "Game of Thrones" in it's final season on the air. The breakout of the night went to Amazon Studios "Fleabag" for Best Comedy. Fleabag creator-star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, also had wins for best comedy series, best comedy writing and a surprise acting win, over favorite Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" took supporting actress for Alex Borstein and Tony Shalhoub. Bill Hader took lead actor for Barry again, helping HBO be the biggest Emmy winner of 2019 including its Creative Arts ceremonies wins. "Chernobyl" was also a big winner of the night for limited series, with wins for writing and directing as well as in the main race. The acting categories for limited movie gave acting awards to Patricia Arquette (The Act), Ben Whishaw (A Very English Scandal), Jharrel Jerome (When They See Us) and Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon). \

Best speech of the night went to Michelle Williams for Fosse/Verdon. She had by far the best speech hands down. She passionately commented (with excellent pacing and steadied firm emotion) on how, as a woman, she was given all the tools she needed to do her job properly. She also clearly said she was paid equally this time. She perfectly called out all in the audience and decision makers watching, to listen to women, help support them, and give them what they need to be their best in the workplace.
