The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards belonged to Fleabag. Show creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge won awards for best writing in a comedy series and best lead actress in a comedy, a surprise upset over Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Fleabag also won the award for best comedy series. Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage took home the best supporting actor in a drama award, and has now won the category four times, setting a record. The HBO show, which ended its run this spring, also won for best drama series. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's Tony Shalhoub won for best supporting actor in a comedy and his co-star, Alex Borstein, won for best supporting actress in a comedy, previously winning the same honor in 2018. Barry's Bill Hader also won his second consecutive best lead actor in a comedy award, while Pose's Billy Porter became the first openly gay black man to win the lead actor in a drama Emmy.
