Bruce Miller of "The Handmaid's Tale" also won the award for writing for a drama series. Davis won this award in 2015, but many think Moss will be the one to take home the award this year.

By placing the two buildings off axis and off center with the camera right one being placed to the far edge, the shape of the buildings was more pronounced, and also allowed the images shown on the video walls to appear at varying angles. SNL took four statuettes, with Kate McKinnon tearfully accepting the award for best supporting actress in a comedy series for her portrayal of Hillary Clinton.

Against the backdrop of President Donald Trump's assaults on the media, women, and people of color, two feminist dramas and America's most powerful platform for political satire dominated at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards.

And what would be a bigger thank you to Hulu while hurting all of CBS and Hulu's other competitors than finding a way to give one of their most popular shows an upset Emmy win?

"You put that orange wig on, it's birth control, trust me", he said.

Donald Glover became the fist black director to win for directing a comedy. Her relationship with an African American man set off a white supremacist attack, while separately her French boyfriend drugs her, causing a crisis.

Riz Ahmed was honoured as best limited series actor for "The Night Of".

Elisabeth Moss's stylist has revealed there was a hidden message "to the patriarchy" in the actress's Emmy Awards outfit.

Director Jean-Marc Vallee continued Big Little Lies' steamroll through the Limited Series category. "Veep", which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the former president of the US, won best comedy series.

It's the first time the Television Academy selected a television series from a streaming service in this category. Though RuPaul himself won the reality competition host award, and the show took costumes, too, the overall series statue when to the NBC singing competition show. "I'm sort of numb!" she said.

Best comedy series went to Veep, an Emmys favourite that pokes fun at the challenges faced by women in politics.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Donald Glover and Alec Baldwin. But the comedy category's most dramatic win of the night came when Master of None writers and co-stars Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari won Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series - and received a standing ovation.

Combined with Emmys that Louis-Dreyfus has won for "Seinfeld" and "New Adventures of Old Christine", her latest trophy tied her with Cloris Leachman as the most-winning Emmy performer ever.

"Saturday Night Live", for which Trump was an endless fount of comedy during his campaign and early presidency, had its best Emmys haul in the show's 41-year history. Waithe meanwhile, was not only the first African American woman to be nominated for comedy writing but also the first black woman to win.

The show also picked up the award for best variety sketch show and outstanding directing.

"I've done some jobs or things that you shouldn't admire or respect", Baldwin said.

Now that he's not employed with the Trump administration, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer really wants to be in (liberal) folks' good books - he walked on stage at the Emmys behind a podium, talking about the fantastic size of the audience at the awards. And Black Mirror: San Junipero, the only episode of Black Mirror with a (sort of) happy ending, won Best TV Movie over HBO's The Wizard of Lies and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
