Tonight, the 71st annual Emmy Awards took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Alex Borstein won the statuette for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for playing Susie Myerson in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which stars Rachel Brosnahan, Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle.

She was up against a slew of worthy contenders, including Sarah Goldberg for Barry, Sian Clifford for Fleabag, Olivia Colman for Fleabag, Betty Gilpin for GLOW, Marin Hinkle for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Kate McKinnon for Saturday Night Live and Anna Chlumsky for Veep.
