Full list of the Emmy winners

And that's a wrap.

The 71st Annual Emmy Awards have come to an end, and it proved to be one of the most competitive years yet with some surprising wins.

Game of Thrones - as predicted - picked up the big award of the night, Outstanding Drama Series, despite copping mixed reviews in its outgoing season.

But the HBO epic lucked out elsewhere even though it dominated the nominations in the leading categories.

Billy Porter (Pose) beat Kit Harington for Outstanding Drama Actor, while Jodi Comer (Killing Eve) toppled Emilia Clarke for Oustanding Drama Actress.

In the biggest upset, actor Jason Bateman won Best Directing for a Drama Series for Ozark where he was up against three GoT episodes, while Ozark's Julia Garner beat four Thrones actors to take out Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Fan favourite Peter Dinklage saved the day for the series, becoming the first actor ever to win Best Supporting Actor in a Drama series four times for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Meanwhile, actor Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon) beat out a competitive field in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series category, while Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge caused a shock upset edging out Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) for Oustanding Comedy Actress.
