The 71st Emmy awards aired Sunday and they were full of notable snubs and surprises.
"Game of Thrones" was the expected winner of the night, but the best comedy series race was tighter. "Fleabag" ended up taking the prize over previous winner "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "Veep."Advertisement"Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus had won the Emmy for best actress in a comedy series for every previous season of the show. If she had won for this year's final season, she would have become the most awarded actor in Emmy history.
The Emmys continued to ignore "Deadwood." In its last chance at a major Emmy victory (this time for best TV movie), it lost to Netflix's interactive "Black Mirror" movie, "Bandersnatch."
