“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Big Little Lies” the Big Winners at 69th Emmy’s

LOS ANGELES – Hulu’s science fiction series “The Handmaid’s Tale” picked up the award for Outstanding Drama on Sunday at the 69th Emmy Awards.

The series beat “Westworld,” “Stranger Things,” “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “House of Card” and “This is Us” to bag the top honor.

“Go home; get to work. We have a lot of things to fight for,” said Bruce Miller, one of the show producers at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is based on the novel of the same name by Canadian writer Margaret Atwood, which tells the dystopian story of the United States dominated by a dictatorial regime.

Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski and Max Minghella form the main cast of the series.

Moss won the Outstanding Lead Actress award for her performance, seeing off challenges from Viola Davis (“How To Get Away With Murder”), Claire Foy (“The Crown”), Robin Wright (“House of Cards”), Keri Russell (“The Americans”) and Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”).

“The Handmaid’s Tale” won six other awards, including Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series (Bruce Miller), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Ann Dowd), and Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (Reed Morano).

The other big winner on Sunday was HBO’s miniseries “Big Little Lies,” taking home five awards in the Limited Series or Movie category, including Outstanding Lead Actress (Nicole Kidman), Outstanding Director (Jean-Marc Vallée), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgaard).

Stephen K. Brown (“This Is Us”) took home the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama award ahead of Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”), Milo Ventimiglia (“This is Us”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) and Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”).

Donald Glover’s Emmy for directing for a comedy series (“Atlanta”) was the first time a black person has won an Emmy in the category.

Glover, who stars in the show, also scooped the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series prize.
