The battle between streaming and traditional TV was in full force during Sunday nights 70th annual Emmy Awards in LA.

Netflix and HBO went toe-to-toe with 112 and 108 total nominations respectively, while NBC and Amazon followed closely behind with 58 and 47 nods each.

But from the start of the ceremony it was clear that the internet would reign supreme.

It was Amazon Prime who gained an early lead, winning top comedic honors as Phoebe Waller-Bridge earned Best Comedy Actress not but minutes after topping the Writing category for Fleabag.

She seemed besides herself after eking out a win against category favorite, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss.

Also blindsided by her win, Phoebe said ‘No! Oh, my god, no,’ before going into her thanks.

Earlier on the English stunner took home the writing award from The Masked Singer’s Ken Jeong and Nick Cannon. 

‘I find writing really, really hard and really painful,’ she admitted before giving props to her team and audiences alike.

It was a big night for Waller-Bridge, who was also nominated in several categories as the creator of the wicked spy drama Killing Eve.

The Academy Award winning actress gave a stirring speech which acknowledged all of the strong women in her category while also thanking her bosses for listening to her creative input.

‘All these things require effort and cost more money. But my bosses never presumed to know better than I did about what I needed in order to do my job and honor Gwen Verdon,’ she said. 

She recognized the project as one of the rare times a female actor was given equal pay, while recognizing how rare her position was, even in an industry set on triumphing female talent.

‘[Our team] understood that when you put value into a person it empowers that person to get in touch with their own inherent value and where do they put it? They put it into their work.’

‘And so the next time a woman, and especially a woman of color, because she stands to make 52 cents on the dollar compared to her white, male counterpart tells you what she needs in order to do her job, listen to her, believe her.’
