Other big winners included HBO's limited series Chernobyl, which picked up seven awards in total, including cinematography, sound, music and video editing.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also had seven wins in total, including Outstanding Guest Actress and Actor for Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby. 

Lynch, who added to her four previous Emmys for series including Glee and Hollywood Game Night, said she based her portrayal of a 1950s comic on the women she grew up watching.

'I went right to the source: Phyllis Diller, Totie Fields, Moms Mabley,' the actress said. 'Back then, in order for a woman to be in comedy, she had to have a gimmick.' 

Eighth and final season: The show won awards for visual effects, non-prosthetic make-up, main title design and drama series casting

Bradley Whitford made history on the night as he became the first person to win an Emmy in both the comedy and drama guest categories.

The actor previously won for Transparent in 2015 and picked up the drama award for his work on The Handmaid's Tale on Sunday.

He joked: 'Awards show are not arenas of justice. We know that because the ‘hot priest' [Fleabag's Andrew Scott] did not get nominated. 

'They are conspiracies of circumstance and my circumstances are so lucky.'

Top prizes: Other big winners included HBO's limited series Chernobyl, which picked up seven awards in total, including cinematography, sound, music and video editing

He went on to praise the show, adding: 'I get to look into Lizzie [Elisabeth] Moss' eyes. She's getting to perform what I think is the voice of a generation. It's like Sophie's Choice the series… 

'I want to thank Margaret Atwood with giving us perspective… action is the antidote to despair.' 

Proving how popular British drama has become in the US, Fleabag received two prizes, including Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series.   

British marital comedy State of the Union also won the Emmy for best short-form comedy or drama series, with short-form acting honors going to its stars, Chris O'Dowd and Rosamund Pike.

Elsewhere, Anthony Bourdain was given two posthumous Emmys for travel series Parts Unknown.

The TV chef, who tragically took his own life while filming in Paris in 2018, was honored with an Emmy Award for Outstanding Informational Series and Outstanding Writing For a Nonfiction Program. 

It's not the first posthumous award to be given to Bourdain; he picked up posthumous Emmys in the same two categories in September 2018. 

Following Bourdain's death, the show's production company Zero Point Zero decided to air the 12th and final season of Parts Unknown, despite the fact that several episodes were unfinished.
