"And we're done!" Or as Oh herself put it in the bit, "It's a pleasure just to be Asian!" Peter Dinklage took home the best supporting actor prize for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister. If the showrunners had needed to stretch the story more, either Dany might still be over in Essos or Game of Thrones would be out of Kingdoms by the end!

Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Prof Ford's testimony should be heard. Kavanaugh was seen Monday morning arriving at the White House, which has stood by the judge in the face of the accusations.

Jost and Che were preceded - and upstaged - by SNL co-stars Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson singing "We Solved It", a song about how the Emmys solved Hollywood's representation problem.

"I'll be thanking you for the rest of my life for trusting me with your Midge", she said, referencing her character.

"This year, the audience is allowed to drink in their seats".

The pressure was on Michaels because NBC and other broadcasters are increasingly reliant on awards and other live events to draw viewers distracted by online options.
