It’s television’s biggest night of the year at the Emmy Awards 2019 in Los Angeles. There were stars aplenty but no ringmaster for the three-hour show. However, it went just as smoothly as February’s no-host Oscars.

HBO’s Game of Thrones won two big awards of the night but Phoebe Waller Bridge’s Fleabag got the most wins. The Television Academy’s 24,000-plus voters had two weeks in August to pick their favourites.
