Emmys 2019: Alex Borstein wins Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series again, dedicates it to Holocaust survivor grandmother
Alex Borstein won her second Emmy Award for her role as Susie Myerson in 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'.
The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards are underway and we have started with comedy. The Outstanding Supporting Actress nominations included two actresses each from 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' (Alex Borstein and Marin Hinkle) and 'Fleabag' (Sian Clifford and Olivia Coleman). The award was announced by Catherine O'Hara (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series) and Amy Poehler (Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series), both of them also nominated for Emmys tonight.
The Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series went to Alex Borstein for her role in 'Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' as Susie Myerson. Borstein also won the same award last year for the same role. She joked about not wearing any underwear as last year many were upset at Borstein going without a bra.
Borstein dedicated the award to "the strength of every woman", to Amy Sherman-Palladino and the crew and cast of the show. Borstein especially dedicated the show to her grandmother who was an immigrant and Holocaust survivor. Her grandmother, while in line to be shot, turned to the guard and asked "what happens if I step out of line?" Her grandmother stepped out of line and Borstein said because of that she is here, and her children are here. Borstein then rallied a call for the ladies to "step out of line" as she accepted her award.
