'Game of Thrones,' 'Mrs. Maisel' Top Emmy Awards
This is What's Trending Today...
Stars gathered in Los Angeles Monday night for the Emmys, the biggest awards ceremony in American television.
It was the 70th anniversary of the Emmys. And this year, fewer people watched the three-hour-long broadcast than ever before.
The television ratings may have suffered, but there were still reasons to celebrate for many of last night's Emmy winners.
Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel became the first internet series to win the Emmy for best comedy. It also won seven other awards for writing, directing and acting and more.
HBO's Game of Thrones won the best drama series award for a third time. The show's eighth and final season begins next year. Game of Thrones took a total of nine awards Monday, more than any other production.
The long-running NBC comedy show, Saturday Night Live, was the only traditional broadcast show to be honored at this year's Emmys. And it won a lot of awards, tying with Mrs. Maisel for eight.
Critics noted that the award winners this year were not a very ethnically mixed group. Yet the group of the nominees represented the most diverse group in the history of the Emmys.
Twitter user April Reign, who created the #oscarssowhite movement on Twitter, posted a series of tweets about the Emmys.
In one post, she wrote: "Let's talk a bit more about what "diversity" is and isn't, and whether that should be the goal. Last night, @TheEmmys Chairman/CEO Hayma Washington encouraged everyone to give themselves a round of applause for diversity. But... why?"
Some social media users also had other criticisms of the awards show. They said hosts Michael Che and Colin Joste lacked in humor.
Critic Dominic Patten wrote, "Turns out going with two hosts instead of one did not double the fun at the 70th Primetime #Emmys tonight."
The crowd did seem to enjoy some moments at the awards ceremony, such as Betty White's appearance on stage. The audience stood and cheered the 96-year-old television comedy star for more than a minute.
Another standing ovation went to Henry Winkler, who won a supporting actor award for HBO's Barry. It was his first Emmy win in his more than 40-year-long career in Hollywood. Winkler gained fame in the 1970s for his part in the hit television show Happy Days.
Winkler told the crowd, "If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you," Then, he jokingly told his adult children that they could go to bed now. "Daddy won," he laughed.
Director Glenn Weiss brought some romance to the Emmys after being recognized for his work on the 2018 Academy Awards broadcast. Weiss used his Emmy award acceptance speech to propose marriage to his girlfriend Jan Svendsen.
He spoke to her from the stage. "You wonder why I don't want to call you my girlfriend?" he asked. "It's because I want to call you my wife."
The crowd went wild with cheers. Svendsen looked both surprised and very pleased as she joined Weiss on stage.
Then, she said yes.
And that's What's Trending Today.

今年是第70届艾美奖 。今年，收看长达三小时的颁奖典礼转播的观众比以往都少 。
亚马逊影业的《了不起的麦瑟尔夫人》成为首个获得艾美奖最佳喜剧的网络剧 。该剧还获得其它七个奖项，包括编剧、导演和演员等 。
家庭影院电视网（HBO）的《权力的游戏》第三次摘得最佳电视剧集奖 。该剧的第八季，即最终季将于明年开播 。《权力的游戏》在周一共摘得九项大奖，领先其它作品 。
长期连播的美国全国广播公司的综艺节目《周六夜现场》是今年唯一获奖的传统广播节目 。该节目获得了许多项奖，与获得八项大奖的《了不起的麦瑟尔夫人》平分秋色 。
推特用户艾谱莉·雷恩（April Reign）以oscarssowhite标签在推特发起了一系列关于艾美奖的推文 。
她在其中一篇推文中表示：“咱们畅谈一下关于‘什么是多样性和什么不是多样性，以及这是否应该成为目标 。昨晚，艾美奖董事长兼首席执行官哈依玛·华盛顿鼓励大家因多样性为自己鼓掌 。但是.....理由呢？”
一些社交媒体用户也对本次颁奖典礼提出了质疑 。他们表示，主持人迈克尔·切（Michael Che）和科林·乔斯（Colin Joste）缺乏幽默感 。
评论家罗米尼克·帕滕（Dominic Patten）写到：“事实证明，主持人由一位变成两位并没有为第70届黄金时段的艾美奖增加双倍乐趣 。”
观众似乎很享受颁奖典礼的某些场景，比如贝蒂·怀特惊喜现身 。观众全体起立为这位96岁高龄的电视戏剧明星欢呼了至少一分钟 。
另一次全体起立鼓掌是在亨利·温克勒因HBO的《巴里》一剧获得最佳男配角奖时 。这是他在好莱坞长达40年职业生涯中首次获得艾美奖 。在20世纪70年代，他因出演热播电视剧《欢乐时光》而成名 。
温克勒告诉观众：“如果在餐桌上等得够久，总会等到薯条的 。”然后，他开玩笑地对成年的子女们说“现在你们可以放心上床睡觉了，爸爸赢了” 。
导演格伦·卫斯（Glenn Weiss）的作品在2018年度奥斯卡颁奖典礼上获得认可后，他这次为艾美奖带来了些许浪漫 。卫斯利用发表艾美奖获奖感言的片刻向女友简·斯文德森求婚 。
观众纵情欢呼、热烈鼓掌 。舞台上的斯文德森看起来既惊讶又高兴 。
