Jason Bateman arrives at 2018 Emmys with wife Amanda Anka

Emmys Opening Number Mockingly Pats Hollywood on the Back for Progress on Diversity: ‘We Solved it!’

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Game of Thrones won the top awards. Rachel Brosnahan Lead Actor comedy category for Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The biggest award won by a broadcast network was "Saturday Night Live" for best variety sketch series. He showed up with trophies for Jaleel White (yes, Steve Urkel himself), The Jeffersons' Marla Gibbs and Martin's Tichina Arnold, among others.

Emmy-winning actress Alex Borstein said "I do" to wearing her old, silver wedding gown to the awards ceremony on Monday ― and she had a brilliant reason.

Hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost filled their opening and indeed much of what followed with a surplus of insider-ish jokes, about everything from sexual harassment to recent low ratings for the Emmys.

As expected, Game of Thrones was the biggest victor of the night.

"We dedicate this award to them, to awareness, to stricter hate crime laws, and mostly, this is for the memory of Jeff and David and Gianni and for all of those taken too soon". The series pilot, which was the episode honored at this year's Emmys ceremony, perfectly set the tone for a confident woman-led show that's both rich and effervescent.




But on an awards ceremony that started off trying to do edgy humor about the limits of progress toward diversity, it was hard not to notice that it took quite a while to get to the first nonwhite victor in an acting category: Regina King for the Netflix limited series Seven Seconds, which will not return for a second season (as many "limited" series, in fact, do).

A suprise marriage proposal ended up stealing the show on Monday night.

Faith was even further made fun of when actress Thandie Newton, after she won an award, took to the stage and said, "I don't even believe in God but I'm going to thank her tonight".

Claire Foy for The Crown wins the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace took the Emmy for best-limited series and brought an acting trophy for Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997. Early reaction on Twitter seemed good, with one user saying, "This may be the best open ever" and another posting, "Holy shit they are killing this Emmy's bit".

In an emotional speech, Murphy dedicated his fifth Emmy win to LGBT+ people who have suffered hate crimes, calling on legislators to create stricter laws to stop attacks. Glenn Weiss, left, proposes to Jan Svendsen at the Emmy Awards.
