The 71st annual Emmy Awards is tonight, broadcasting live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 5 PM Pacific / 8 PM Eastern. Like this year's Oscars there is no official host of the Emmys, instead relying for a parade of past winners to make appearances. THe opening featured Homer Simpson, Anthony Anderson, and Bryan Cranston, who offered up a somewhat sincere celebration of the power of TV. Thomas Lennon, of The State and Reno 911!, was the very snarky announcer.

Fleabag was the Big Upset of the night, beating Veep and Marvelous Mrs Maisel for Best Comedy, Phoebe Waller-Bridge beating Veep's Julia Louis Dreyfus for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. She also won for Best Writing in a comedy series, and Fleabag won for Directing for a Comedy series, too.

Game of Thrones was nominated for a record-setting 32 Emmys, and won a bunch, including Best Drama and Peter Dinklage won Best Supporting Actor for the fourth time; and it won a bunch of awards at last weekend's Creative Emmys ceremonies. Also, there was a Game of Thrones montage earlier in the telecast that some people were angry dropped a big spoiler from the show's final season.

Best Supporting Actor/Actress in a Comedy which went to Tony Shalhoub and Alex Borstein of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Billy Porter made history as the first openly gay black man to win Best Actor in a Drama for his outstanding performance in Pose. Jodie Comer won Best Actress in a Drama for Killing Eve.

Bill Hader won Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Barry.

Jason Bateman won Best Director for a Drama Series for Ozark (Julia Garner won Best Supporting Actress for Ozark, too).

HBO's Chernobyl won Best Limited Series, along with Directing and Writing Emmys... and one for Hildur Guðnadóttir for her striking score.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch won Best Television Movie (it also won a Creative Emmy award for for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within A Scripted Program).

Saturday Night Live won Best Sketch or Variety series (and for Directing), while Last Week Tonight with John Oliver won Best Variety/Talk Show and Best Writing in a Sketch or Variety Series.
