Television's biggest awards night kicked off in LA. So far, Barry's Bill Hader has taken home the best lead actor in a comedy series just like last year, and a stunned Phoebe Waller-Bridge took out best lead actress in a comedy series.

Game of Thrones wrapped up its run with an Emmy for best drama series -- and 12 total for its final season.

Fleabag pulled one of the biggest surprises of the night, sweeping the prizes for best comedy, best actress in a comedy, as well as best writing and directing.

Interestingly, just like Feburary's Oscars, the three-hour stage is a no-host show.The Television Academy’s 24,000-plus voters had two weeks in August to pick their favourites.
