With “The Crown” winning for Best Drama Series, the other contenders were “Game of Thrones,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us,” and “Westworld.” That latter HBO western fantasy series is not eligible for the next ceremony. Acting winners were Claire Foy (“The Crown”) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Goliath”).
“The People v. O.J. Simpson” won as Best TV Movie or Limited Series and its star Sarah Paulson was the actress champ. Tom Hiddleston prevailed for actor, and his “The Night Manager” co-stars Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie won the all-encompassing supporting categories.
