Rachel Brosnahan Went From Snowboard Instructor to Emmy Nominee

18 September, 2018, 07:09 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Rachel Brosnahan then landed Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, capping a remarkable night for the show.

Eight tonally diverse comedies - from Netflix's relentlessly sunny Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to HBO's pitch-dark Barry - faced off at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, and it was no laughing matter.

Charlie Brooker's sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror was the victor of the Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special category, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story's Ryan Murphy landed the gong for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special.

"The Assassination of Gianni Versace" took the Emmy for best limited series and brought an acting trophy for Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997. No surprise there, as the veteran actor - best known for playing Fonzie in Happy Days - was a firm favourite.

Of course, Brosnahan is talking about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, her hit Amazon Prime comedy that is up for 14 awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Zane Gonzalez was kicking with groin injury Sunday, Browns sign new kicker
Understandably, when the Callaway touchdown took place the Browns' Twitter account went nuts. The Browns (0-1-1) host the New York Jets (1-1) on Thursday.


More than 40 years on from his first nomination, this was his first win.

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.

One of the biggest shocks of the night came when presumed front runner Donald Glover, the star and creator of the surreal hip-hop-inspired FX show "Atlanta", lost out in the comedy acting category to Bill Hader's hitman-turned-struggling actor in HBO's showbusiness satire "Barry".

The best drama series prize, to be announced later on Monday, pits medieval fantasy Game of Thrones against Hulu's bleak The Handmaid's Tale, with The Americans seen as the biggest potential spoiler.
