“The Marvelous Mrs Maisel” got its gags right at the Primetime Emmy Awards Tuesday as the show rose to the top with five major wins in the comedy category, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
The show also saw creator Amy Sherman-Palladino creating history by becoming the first woman to grab both Writing and Directing awards for a Comedy Series.
Her husband and show’s co-executive producer Daniel Palladino gave the speech while accepting the trophy for Outstanding Comedy Series.
“To our cast who bite onto our 80-page scripts every week. We just wrapped a day and half ago the season two. We already miss working with you. We look forward to season three,” he said.
Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the title role in the period comedy about a New York City housewife-turned-stand-up-comedienne in the Amazon series, won the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series trophy.
In her speech, she thanked the show’s team, her family and urged the audience to vote in the upcoming Midterms.
“One of the things I love most about the show is that it’s about a woman who’s finding her voice anew… (So) vote, show up, and a bring a friend to the polls,” Brosnahan said.
