Stars packed the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday.

Dystopian female show "The Handmaid's Tale" and FX's surreal hip-hop comedy "Atlanta" were the biggest losers, taking none of the most prestigious awards and making a disappointing night for stars Elisabeth Moss and Donald Glover.

Amazon's "Maisel" is the first streaming series ever to win Best Comedy, and it's only the second hour-long show to take the prize, following "Ally McBeal" in 1999. "'Mrs Maisel" also won four other awards, including a best actress for Rachel Brosnahan.

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series goes to Henry Winkler, for his role in Barry.

Trump readies tariffs on more Chinese goods despite talks
Mr Trump was asked during the meeting whether he was concerned about the impact of the new tariffs on negotiations with China . But 2018 imports from China through July were up almost 9 percent over the same period of 2017, according to U.S.

Dinklage beat his on-screen brother Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to win the award, as well as Stranger Things' David Harbour, Matt Smith (The Crown), Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale) and Mandy Patinkin (Homeland). Last year's drama series victor racked up a number of acting trophies, too, but this year it lost the major categories - from drama series on down through the lead and supporting acting categories.

After last week´s Creative Arts Emmys, HBO has won 17 statuettes to Netflix´s 16. This was the first time Brosnahan was nominated in the category, although she was previously up for guest actress in a drama in 2015. Maybe it was the Jon Hamm effect, but Rhys pulled out the win, even against last year's victor in the category, "This Is Us" star Sterling K. Brown.

Emmy-winning director Glenn Weiss, left, turned his acceptance speech into a proposal to his girlfriend Jan Svendsen. It was clearly planned on Weiss' part, but it threw everyone else, including his new fiancee, for a loop. She played the young British queen who, as the series continues, will be shown advancing in years.

As Bill Hader went up to the stage to receive his Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, he leaned over to give a hug to none other than Perkins. Her performance had already earned her a Golden Globe for Best Actress - Television Series Musical or Comedy for her role as Miriam "Midge" Maisel. Criss is half-Filipino like his character Andrew Cunanan in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.
