Peter Dinklage wins third Emmy for role in 'Game of Thrones'

This capped off a pretty epic night for the Amazon comedy, which already saw several wins: Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein took home Outstanding Lead and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, respectively, while creator Amy Sherman-Palladino nabbed two Emmys for writing and directing.

So it was little surprise when she took the stage as victor for her role as an unlikely "50s era comedian in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". When the 33-year-old actor turned around, she revealed a new back tattoo which features a design of large roses and an animal, which appears to be a lamb.

Rachel Brosnahan won the comedy actress Emmy at the 70th annual awards on Monday.

SNUB: "Versace's" supporting cast - The Ryan Murphy-produced limited series took only some of the awards it was expected to, notably limited series, limited series/TV movie directing (for Murphy himself) and limited series/TV movie lead actor (for Darren Criss). "You go away for as long as you need, ' and we've all been just trying to be a bench stop for her".

HBO dark comedy Barry notched two acting wins - for Winkler and series star Bill Hader.

The gala, television´s version of the Oscars, was expected to be a showdown between record-breaking fantasy epic "Game of Thrones" and last year´s best drama victor "The Handmaid´s Tale".

Amazon's (AMZN.O) "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", about a 1950s housewife who turns to standup comedy, took home the Emmy for best comedy series.

Then Regina King broke the string, with a best actress trophy in a limited series or movie for Seven Seconds, which tracks the fallout from a white police officer's traffic accident involving a black teenager. Peter Dinklage won for Game of Thrones, and Thandie Newton was chosen for her supporting role in sci-fi series Westworld.

Referencing the earlier on-stage proposal during his acceptance speech, Rhys said his girlfriend Keri Lynn Russell told him, "I will punch you clean in the mouth" if he followed suit.
