Women win big at Emmys

Dreyfus, who won her eighth Emmy for outstanding lead actress for her role as Selina Meyers - and her sixth for that part alone - revealed the dropped plot line to laughs during her speech.

Louis-Dreyfus joked that they had planned a storyline about an impeachment "but we abandoned that because we were anxious someone else might get to it first". A third person joked: "Julia Louis Dreyfus is like the Meryl Streep of TV". Her first Emmy win was when she was 35.

The 56-year-old actress has won more Emmys than anyone in history.

Louis-Dreyfus starting racking up Emmys in 1996, when she won outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for Seinfeld (she'd been nominated each year since 1992).

The Handmaid's Tale cleaned up in the drama category, winning awards for its lead and supporting actresses-Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd-as well as for writing and direction.

5 Emmys® for "The Night Of", including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie (Riz Ahmed), Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited Series or Movie, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Limited Series or Movie, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited Series, Movie or Special and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited Series or Movie.

Devastation from Hurricane Irma far more than expected
It gave The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, a for-profit facility with 152 beds, an overall rating of "below average". To make matters worse, an additional 18 people from an adjoining facility were also relocated because of the investigation.

What should win: One potential spoilsport could be FX's Atlanta, especially if the Academy's members want to prove that they're young and hip. Issa Rae's Insecure and Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag, for example, were snubbed in both the best-comedy and the best-comedic actress category, shoehorned out of the running by more established stars like Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Allison Janney (a one-woman Emmys juggernaut, who is close to matching Louis-Dreyfus's competitive record).

"We've shown a light on domestic abuse", she said.

"It is filled with shame and secrecy, and by you acknowledging me with this award, it shines a light on it even more", she said.

Writing, Limited Series, Movie or Special: Charlie Brooker, "Black Mirror: San Junipero". As I reported earlier tonight, Lena Waithe became the first black woman to win an Emmy for comedy writing for the Master of None episode "Thanksgiving."

"Saturday Night Live" was named best variety sketch series, and also brought wins for Kate McKinnon and Melissa McCarthy's turn as former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
