The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Emmys

The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Emmys

It's US TV's biggest party of the year, and this one is the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

Claire Foy beat presumed front runner Elisabeth Moss, star of Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", to win for her quiet but formidable portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Netflix (NFLX.O) drama "The Crown."This wasn't supposed to happen", said a surprised Foy". Embodying this classic look on the carpet was none other than Jessica Biel, who was complimented by her husband Justin Timberlake who looked dapper in a traditional black tux.

John Oliver, in picking up the trophy for best variety talk show award for Last Week Tonight, thanked Weiss' girlfriend for giving the right answer or, he joked, the whole ceremony could have gone south.

NBC will be broadcasting the awards show live on both the West (5 p.m.) and East Coast (8 p.m.).

The cast of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" poses backstage with their Outstanding Limited Series award.

Rachel Brosnahan from Highland Park and Alex Borstein from Deerfield were honored for the acclaimed Amazon series, which also won the prize for best comedy series. "You go away for as long as you need, ' and we've all been just trying to be a bench stop for her".

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

"I wrote this (speech) 43 years ago", said the former Happy Days actor, who had been nominated six times previously.

It wasn't the only win for Barry, the HBO comedy about a hitman who decides to take up acting, as Bill Hader won the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

SURPRISE: Merritt Wever won the supporting actress in a limited series or TV movie category, and although she was a prior victor - in 2013 for "Nurse Jackie" - this one was unexpected for her. Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, and Thandie Newton was chosen for her supporting role in sci-fi series Westworld.
