Amazon leads Netflix and HBO with 2019 Emmy wins
HBO reclaimed the Emmy throne from Netflix in July with this year's nominations, nabbing 137 to the streamer's 117.
The battle continues Sunday night at the 71st Primetime Emmys, as "Game of Thrones," "Veep" and "Chernobyl" go up against "Ozark," "Russian Doll" and "When They See Us" for the coveted statuette. (Amazon Prime has its share of strong contenders too, with both "Fleabag" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" angling for multiple awards.)
Track who's winning and losing the Primetime Emmys battle right here with our regularly updating tally of tonight's victors.
Jharrel Jerome wins lead actor in a limited series or TV movie for his performance in "When They See Us," giving Netflix its first win of the evening. Earlier, "Chernobyl" writer Craig Mazin and director Johan Renck each won in their respective categories, adding to HBO's total. But Amazon also added to its tally with Ben Whishaw's win in the supporting actor in a limited series or TV movie category for "A Very English Scandal."
Bill Hader's win for lead actor in a comedy series for "Barry" finally puts HBO on the scoreboard. But Amazon further secured its domination of the comedy categories with Phoebe Waller-Bridge's win for lead comedy actress for "Fleabag."
Amazon goes on a streak of comedy wins. Alex Borstein wins for supporting actress in a comedy series for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," and Phoebe Waller-Bridge wins the comedy writing award for "Fleabag." Harry Bradbeer of "Fleabag" picked up the award for directing in a comedy series.
The first award of the night goes to Tony Shalhoub for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," and Amazon jumps out to an opening lead.
