The Television Academy voters have crowned the winners of the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and despite the diverse crop of nominees, a few shoes dominated the ceremony (hello, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel").

"Thank you to Netflix for your support of artists", Jeff Daniels, a supporting actor victor for Godless, said as he accepted his award.

In the comedy categories, Mrs Maisel bested all comers in its first year of eligibility, sweeping the female acting prizes (star Rachel Brosnahan and co-star Alex Borstein) and best series honors. Jill Soloway was the most recent woman to win the comedy directing Emmy (for "Transparent") in 2016.

Maisel, Amazon's freshman sitcom about an unhappy 1950s homemaker liberated by stand-up comedy, earned best actress honours for star Rachel Brosnahan.

Claire Foy of The Crown and Matthew Rhys of The Americans won top drama acting Emmys, their first trophies for the roles and last chance to claim them, with Foy's role as Queen Elizabeth II going to another actress and Rhys' show wrapped.

Regina King was an unexpected limited series victor for playing the mother of a black teen killed by a white police officer in Seven Seconds. But it proved undeniable with 14 total nominations, the most ever for an Amazon series in a single year and second only to "Atlanta" (16) as the most nominated comedy of the year.

"And one of the things I love the most about this show while I have you captive for another two seconds, it's about a woman who is finding her voice anew", she said. "Because I want to call you my wife", he added to cheers, applause and a few teary-eyed actors in the audience. "She's the best", he continued.
