The majority of this year's Primetime Emmy award winners were derived from such streaming services as Amazon Studios and Netflix, with five and seven wins respectively.
Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was the television series with the most wins. It swept five Emmy categories such as "Outstanding Comedy Series," "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series" for protagonist Rachel Brosnahan, "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series" for Alex Borstein, as well as "Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series" and "Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series."
