Netflix beat out HBO for the most Emmy wins during last night’s primetime Emmy Awards telecast, but both networks finished in a tie for the most Emmys wins overall, according to the TV Academy.
Netflix, which shocked the television industry by garnering more Emmy nominations than HBO, won seven Emmy awards during NBC’s live Emmys telecast, topping HBO by one statuette, according to the Academy. Amazon and FX tied for third with five wins, while ABC, NBC and VH1 won one Emmy a piece.
Both Netflix and HBO garnered 23 Emmy Awards across the Primetime Emmy and Creative Emmy ceremonies. "Tonight's recognition is a tribute to the creativity and talent of thousands of artists and we are thrilled to see their work awarded by the Academy," said Netflix vice president of original series Cindy Holland in a statement. "We are honored to share this night with our friends at HBO, who have paved the way for years by setting the highest possible standard."
Amazon Prime’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was the biggest winner among all shows during last night’s ceremony, winning five statuettes, including best comedy. Maisel’s win officially ended the three-year run of HBO’s Veep atop the best comedy category. Veep was not eligible for 2018 Emmy consideration.
FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace finished second with three Emmy wins including Outstanding limited series, followed by the network’s The Americans, which drew two Emmy wins.
HBO’s Game Of Thrones – which won the best drama Emmy after not being eligible for the honor last year – also drew two wins along with HBO’s Barry, and Netflix’s Godless and The Crown.
HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver won its third straight Emmy for outstanding variety talk series.
