Taking home the Emmy statues last night for outstanding writing, directing, lead actress, and supporting actress is a pretty damn good sweep for Amy Sherman-Palladino’s TheMarvelous Mrs. Maisel. The performances by Bill Hader and Henry Winkler took home two trophies for Barry making for an impressive win for the show’s first season.
Also, Mulaney’s special delivered on high expectations of being pretty damn good, so we’re glad to see that Kid Gorgeous won.
All in all, most expectations were fulfilled in the comedy categories as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has been really growing in buzz for the last several months.
