Amazon’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ wins 8 Emmy awards

Amazon’s original series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big at the 70th PrimeTime Emmy Awards by taking home more major wins than any other show. The biggest award was the show’s win for Outstanding Comedy Series and Rachel Brosnahan won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her headline role. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino won the Emmys for both Directing and Writing for a Comedy Series for her contributions to the show. Those wins made history because it’s the first time a woman has ever won both awards in the same year. Alex Borstein won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Susie Myerson in the series. The final three Emmys were awarded during the creative arts ceremony for Casting, Music Supervision, and Single-Camera Picture Editing.
