                            Emmys 2018 Complete Winner's List: 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel ' wins big as 'Atlanta' experiences major snub with zero wins

The biggest night of television, the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, uncharacteristically made a move to Monday night (September 17) and was broadcast live on NBC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It's a major shift for NBC indeed. The last time the peacock network was in charge of airing the Emmy Awards (in 2014), it had raked in an impressive 15.6 million average total viewers, marking the second-highest-rated broadcast in the past five years. With the show back to a weekday once again, on the heels of the cultural and socio-political movements in Hollywood, all eyes were on the annual gala. 

'Saturday Night Live' stars  Colin Jost and Michael Che were tasked with hosting duties, with Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph taking charge of keeping the giggles coming. Leading the nominations this year was HBO hit 'Game of Thrones' with 22 nods, with 'Westworld', and 'Saturday Night Live' following close behind with 21 nominations. However, none of these shows managed to win big on the big night, with 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' turning out to be the biggest hit. The 70 Primetime Emmys was also supposed to be all about inclusivity and diversity, but ultimately it turned out to be a huge let-down in this regard with 'Atlanta' failing to take home a single award and only winners who identify as people of color.
