And on the HBO side of things, its fantasy series "Game of Thrones" scored big with nine wins for its seventh season, including the coveted outstanding drama series category.

The 72-year-old Winkler looked bowled over when he won for best supporting actor in a comedy series on Monday for his role as Gene Cousineau on HBO's dark comedy "Barry". But in 2018 the television academy bucked that trend by mostly rejecting repeat winners in favor of first-time champs. Sure, there are still actors like Louis-Dreyfus who keep winning: she claimed her first three Emmys for Best Comedy Actress under the old voting system (2012-2014), but she won the next three even as voting was changing (2015-2017).

Marketers in the audience who may want to take advantage of the success of Emmy winners like "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" are, of course, out of luck, as advertising on the service thus far has been limited to a handful of brand integrations and some avails in its National Football League simulcasts.

Best Drama Actress switched from Elisabeth Moss ("The Handmaid's Tale") to Claire Foy ("The Crown"). "Hope you're excited about that - because the one thing Hollywood needs right now is a bunch of people losing their inhibitions at a work function", Jost said to hearty laughs.

The list of products mostly included industrial equipment to avoid directly hurting US consumers. Envoys from the two countries last met August 22 in Washington but reported no progress.

Darren Criss, who is of Filipino descent, won the lead acting award for the miniseries "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", which won best limited series.

As Mr. Weiss accepted his award for directing the Oscars, he asked Jan Svendsen, who was sitting in the audience, to marry him. "It's because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said.

Other highlights of the night included Thandie Newton dropping an F-bomb in a glorious speech during her win for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama series.

In the emerging battle of traditional networks versus new platforms, streaming giant Netflix and HBO ended in a dead heat at the top - at 23 Emmys each.
