Donald Glover appears as ‘Atlanta’ character Teddy Perkins at the Emmys

The Handmaid's Tale - last year's best drama and an early favorite for more hardware - went home empty-handed from the event at the Microsoft Theater, having won three minor awards handed out a week ago.

The stars of British royal series The Crown and Cold War spy show The Americans won Emmys on Monday on a night of upsets for the highest honors in television.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said a surprised Foy.

It is Borstein's first Emmy win; she was previously nominated for an Emmy in 2013 for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for an episode of Family Guy, where she voices matriarch Lois Griffin.

In addition to "Atlanta", it defeated a formidable field of six other comedies to win this award: "Barry", "Black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "GLOW", "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

Brosnahan is the first new victor in the category since 2012 when Julia Louis-Dreyfus began her streak for "Veep".

Best comedy went to The Marvellous Mrs Maisel on Amazon Prime Video.

But since companies submitted responses anonymously, it is unclear to what extent high-profile USA automakers are affected. Corporate executives increasingly believe the trade dispute can only be resolved by direct talks between Trump and Xi.

Landslides and severe flooding affected some areas, with over 1,500 residents seeking refuge in temporary shelters overnight. Chinese authorities reported four deaths from falling trees and building materials in Guangdong, China's manufacturing hub.

Indeed, Chinese markets and the ETF are down over 20% since the trade conflicts began this year in late January. But a year ago , we lost $375 billion in deficits, and we had, in my opinion, way over $500 billion in cash.

"I don't think it's inappropriate", Smith said.

The biggest award so far won by a broadcast network was "Saturday Night Live" for best variety sketch series.

One of the biggest shocks of the night came when presumed front-runner Donald Glover, the star and creator of the surreal hip-hop-inspired FX show Atlanta, lost out in the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's showbusiness satire Barry.

For Netflix, "The Crown" took home the most awards with five, including best actress in a drama for Claire Foy.

"If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you".

But despite one of the most ethnically diverse array of nominees, only Regina King ("Seven Seconds") Thandie Newton ("Westworld") and RuPaul ("RuPaul's Drag Race") made it to the winners podium.

"Game of Thrones" was ultimately the biggest victor of the night, returning to the drama series race after sitting out last year with 9 wins total this year. But several of its competitors recently - and not-so-recently, in Game of Thrones' case - wrapped stellar seasons that earned them well-deserved spots on this list.
