Branson, who created and starred in the freshman series, won an Emmy Award for writing a comedy series. ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” which was also nominated for best comedy, is a rare bright spot for network broadcasts in an age dominated by streaming and cable.

There was a ripple of reaction in theaters when ‘Succession’ creator Jesse Armstrong mentioned New King of England, Charles IIIthe cast standing beside him as he receives the show’s trophy.
“A significant week for the succession, the new King of England, this is for us. It seems our victory had a little more votes than Prince Charles,” said Armstrong. “I’m not saying our position is more legitimate than his. Let’s leave that to someone else.”
Ralph closed out the Emmy show by winning Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for “Abbott Elementary.”
“I’m an endangered species, but I don’t sing victim songs. I’m a woman, I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs,” she belted. And to those who questioned their dreams, he encouraged them, saying, “I’m here to tell you that this is what you believe.”
The audience, which included Lizzo and many of TV’s biggest stars, stood up and cheered for Ralph.
When Lizzo herself won the award for Best Competition Series Trophy for “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls,” she delivered another emotional pep talk.
“When I was little, all I wanted to see was me in the media. Someone fat like me, black like me, beautiful like me,” said Music. the artist said.

Garner is among the winners I took advantage of having all my bases covered by thanking my husband and others with on-screen messages.
