Amazon had its best Emmys season yet with seven wins at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Fleabag and A Very English Scandal.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag took home four awards for winning comedy series, Bridge winning lead actress in a comedy series and writing in a comedy series, and Harry Bradbeer nabbing directing in a comedy series. Tony Shalhoub and Alex Borstein won in the comedy supporting actor and actress categories for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. A Very English Scandal’s Ben Whishaw took home an award for best supporting actor in a limited series or movie.
Amazon also won eight Creative Arts Emmys last weekend, including best guest actress and actor for Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby, respectively, for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Last year, Amazon won a total of eight Emmys. The streaming site nabbed five Primetime awards, all going to Maisel, for best comedy, writing, directing, actress (Rachel Brosnahan) and supporting actress (Alex Bornstein).

Heading into the 2019 Emmys, Amazon had a total of 47 nominations, up from 22 last year.
