Emmys 2019: Phoebe Waller-Bridge's 'Fleabag' beats 'Schitt's Creek' and 'Veep' to win Outstanding Comedy Series
The actress took the stage to accept the award along with executive producer and director Harry Bradbeer and Andrew Scott, Sian Clifford and Brett Gelman.
And that is another one for Phoebe Waller-Bridge's 'Fleabag'.
Tonight, the brilliant comedy has outdone itself taking over the Emmys 2019 in such a manner. The series celebrates its final win for the night with the Outstanding Comedy Series award. Wlaer-Bridge took the stage to accept the award along with executive producer and director Harry Bradbeer and Andrew Scott, Sian Clifford and Brett Gelman.
In a classic Fleabag manner, Waller-Bridge said how winning so many awards tonight is "just getting ridiculous". She spoke how 'Fleabag' started as a one-woman show at Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and went on to win so many awards at the Emmys. "The journey has been absolutely mental!"
The show won against 'Barry', 'The Good Place', 'The Marvelous Mrs Maisel', 'Russian Doll', 'Schitt's Creek', and 'Veep'.
Fans across Twitter are very excited about 'Fleabag' winning the award. "I’m sad that Schitt’s Creek didn’t win outstanding comedy series but Fleabag is so so so good so I can’t say “robbed” at all. Like... that category was full of amazing shows!" said one.
Others encouraged more people to take up the show. "Fleabag won outstanding comedy series, outstanding lead actress in a comedy, outstanding direction in comedy, outstanding writing in comedy and you're all still sleeping on this feminist masterpiece of a show...pitiful #Emmys" said a fan.
