Mare of Easttown, which took home three awards overall, saw hot favorite Kate Winslet win best actress in a limited series. Plus Evan Peters won his first Emmy for best supporting actor. A surprise packet on the night, the comedy Hacks, which scored three wins overall, took home writing and directing awards, as well as best lead actress in a comedy for the magnificent Jean Smart.
Last but certainly not least, Michaela Coel took home a hugely deserved win for best writing for a limited series with I May Destroy You.
