ⓘ 70th Primetime Emmy Awards

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2017 until May 31, 2018, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The ceremony was held live on September 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and was broadcast in the U.S. by NBC. The ceremony was hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost.

The nominations were announced by Ryan Eggold and Samira Wiley on July 12, 2018. The biggest winner of the night was Prime Videos comedy-drama The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which won five trophies including the honor for Outstanding Comedy Series, making history by becoming the first web television and streaming service series to claim the prize.

With a U.S. viewership of 10.2 million that reflects an 11% drop from the previous year, it was the then-least watched show in Emmy history.
