"Veep" did, however, win the most important award for comedy shows: Outstanding Comedy Series.

Sterling K. Brown won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama for NBC's "This is Us".

In addition to a win for best drama series, "The Handmaid's Tale", the story of a dystopian world based on the novel by Margaret Atwood, also earned a best drama actress prize for Elisabeth Moss - a career first - and a supporting actress statuette for Ann Dowd - another career first.

Veep won the Best Comedy Series for the third year in a row and Louis-Dreyfus won Best Actress for a whooping sixth time.

Odell Beckham's (ankle) Week 1 status in 'real doubt' for Giants
If Dallas can figure out ways to move Dez around and get him the ball early and often, it will jump-start the entire offense. But the Giants have played Dallas with a lot of split safeties, meaning the middle is the most vulnerable area of the field.

Louis-Dreyfus, named Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for the past five years, faced stiff competition in the form of Pamela Adlon (FX's Better Things), Jane Fonda (Netflix's Grace and Frankie), Allison Janney (CBS' Mom), Ellie Kemper (Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Tracee Ellis Ross (ABC's black-ish) and Lily Tomlin (Netflix's Grace and Frankie).

Veep and Saturday Night Live were also big winners.

Even more impressively, Louis-Dreyfus now stands alongside the legendary Cloris Leachman as the most fêted performer in Emmy Awards history with eight overall wins. "Thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from SC and a little queer black girl from the south side of Chicago", she said, basking in a standing ovation from the theatre audience.

Kohli fires India to seven-wicket T20 win

"Can I just say, bring women to the front of their own stories, and make them the hero of their own stories".

Kidman said the production highlighted the "complicated, insidious disease" of domestic abuse. Perhaps that will triply open up the comedy categories to one of the other long-sidelined series in the mix: HBO's other great hope, Silicon Valley, ABC's Black-ish, or Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, delivers flawless jokes at a back-breaking pace.

As host, Stephen Colbert did a great job, mixing pretaped bits (with RuPaul as Emmy, with the cast of "Westworld" as a malfunctioning robot host) with live gags (many aimed at his "Late Show" target Donald Trump).

Writer Lena Waithe received a standing ovation, as the first African American female to win for a comedy series.
