2019 Emmy Awards Winners: Here's The Complete List

"Game of Thrones" and "Veep" were early favourites, but the night was taken by "Fleabag."

If Beyoncé’s historic “Homecoming” documentary can lose an award to James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke,” truly anything can happen at the 2019 Emmy Awards.

Down a host and swimming in nominations for “Game of Thrones,” the 71st annual ceremony kicked off on Sunday night to celebrate the best in television over the last year with the stars descending on the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Heading into the night with a record-breaking 32 nods and 10 wins from the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month, HBO’s fantasy juggernaut was the one to beat. The series dominated the supporting drama categories and delivered the lion’s share of the network’s total 137 nominations, edging out Netflix as the most-honoured streaming service this year.

HBO’s other prized pony “Veep” was also well-primed for a victory lap with star Julia Louis-Dreyfus one trophy away from setting a record for the most awards won by a single performer — but alas, it wasn’t to be.

The ceremony seemed to mark a turning point for the awards show, with the Television Academy choosing to recognize newer dramas and comedies like FX’s groundbreaking “Pose” and the Sandra Oh-fronted “Killing Eve,” and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s “Fleabag” taking the lion’s share of awards.
