“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Swept The Emmys

September 18, 2018 / Posted by:

If you’re the type of person who doesn’t watch TV shows on Amazon, then The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel might sound like a film about a magical British nanny starring Dame Judi Dench. But as of today, it’s the reason why the show’s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino hauled a giant sack of trophies out of the Emmys last night.

During last night’s Emmy ceremony, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took home the awards for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, for Rachel Brosnahan. Or “Rachel Braz…nah-han” if you’re presenter Angela Bassett, which is a totally acceptable pronunciation when a queen like Angela Bassett says your name.

It also took home Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (for Alex Borstein, who expertly jiggled on her way up to the stage), as well as Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Comedy Series. Amy Sherman-Palladino is notoriously a huge fan of wacky hats, so I was kind of hoping that someone at PricewaterhouseCoopers would have seen how many awards she was winning last night and commissioned a little tiny top hat to be made for at least one of her Emmys, but that didn’t happen. Oh well, I’m sure she can buy something similar on Amazon.

Also big winners last night were Darren Criss for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (for Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie), Regina King with her third Emmy award for Seven Seconds, Game of Thrones for Best Drama, and The Fonz finally won his first Emmy award after more than 45 years in the business, for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Barry. I kind of wish he’d accepted his award by jumping over a pool of sharks on stage, but I can’t imagine the logistics to execute such a feat are that simple.

Here’s the list of all the winners last night. Claire Foy might still be waiting on the rest of her paycheck, but at least she’s got an Emmy in the meantime.
