   Monday, September 17th marked the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards. The ceremony took place at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and was hosted by comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che.

  Among the ceremony’s highlights was actress Sandra Oh’s loss to The Crown’s Claire Foy, which came as a surprise to many viewers.

  Raging twitter posts came out from Oh’s fans, expressing disappointment in Monday’s result. The 47-year old Killing Eve star made history by being the first Outstanding Lead Actress nominee of Asian descent, but unfortunately, ended up not getting the award, which shocked many people.

  Sandra Oh said, “I am absolutely aware of the significance and take it very seriously because we need it. Not only just for my community — and hopefully what that means to be represented and seen — but also for culture.”

  Even The Crown  Emmy winner, Claire Foy, was surprised by her own victory for it was highly unanticipated.

  In her acceptance speech, Foy said, “I had the most extraordinary two and a half years of my life. I was given a role that I never thought I would ever get a chance to play. And I met people who I will love forever and ever and ever. And the show goes on, which makes me so, so proud. So I dedicate this to the next cast, the next generation. And I also dedicate this to Matt Smith.”

  Despite losing the Emmys, Sandra Oh remains a winner in the eyes of her fans and her parents, who she brought to the red carpet with her. Oh’s mother, introduced as Mrs. Oh, stole the show on the Emmys red carpet with her hanbok, and commented that she was proud of her daughter’s nomination.

  On a brighter note, many fans are thrilled to hear that The Crown was among the Emmy winners for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series.

  Sandy Youssif (10), a fan of the show, said, “This year’s Emmy Awards were really entertaining and fun to watch. [I am] happy The Crown was one of the winners.”

   Killing Eve fans would agree that Monday was truly an unpredictable night. On the contrary, The Crown fans are thrilled to celebrate their favorable result. For a deeper insight into Monday’s highlights, visit CNN.
