Sandra Oh gets emotional discussing her historic Emmy nomination

Claire Foy, who was nominated a year ago for playing a young Elizabeth II in The Crown returned to claim the Lead Actress in a Drama trophy for her valedictory performance in the second series of the Netflix show. She beat last year's victor Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) andThe Americans' Keri Russell, who many hoped would be recognized for her cumulative work in the recently completed series. I had the most extraordinary two and a half years of my life... In March, exec producer Suzanne Mackie acknowledged that Foy was paid less than her co-star Matt Smith to appear in the 20-episode run, comments that caused a royal stir.

Though this marks Foy's first Emmy win for her role as The Crown's Queen Elizabeth II, it wasn't her first nomination.

"The show goes on, which makes me so, so proud".

Onstage on Monday, Foy dedicated the win to the next cast of The Crown, including Oliva Colman, who replaces her as the next iteration of Elizabeth. She was up for this same award at the 2017 Emmys, though she lost out to The Handmaid's Tale star Elisabeth Moss.
