Amazon has swept most of this year’s major comedy categories, with the two supporting actor awards going to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and the best comedy series and best actress in a comedy awards going to Phoebe Waller-Bridge for her work on the hit series “Fleabag”.

The Fleabag’s win was a major upset over Julia Louis Dreyfus’ “Veep” character, final season of the HBO’s comedy “Veep,” was shut out of all the major comedy categories.

Earlier, HBO had already won 25 Emmys across the two nights of the Creative Arts awards show over the previous weekend, while Netflix had won 23.

The year 2019 also saw the end of some of the most fan-favorite series worldwide, like Veep and Game of Thrones, in addition to Schitt’s Creek and Big Bang Theory. And to be precise, it made it difficult to predict who would take home the shimmering statuette.

And surprisingly, HBO’s big winner for Sept. 22 was “Game of Thrones”, though the final season received worldwide criticism.

Out of Game of Thrones’ 32 total nominations, which has also been the most for any series in Emmys history ever, the final season for the mega-hit fantasy series won 12 awards, including 10 Creative Arts awards.

At the Primetime Emmys telecast, “Game of Thrones” won the awards for best drama series and best supporting actor in a drama for Peter Dinklage.
