Five productions that have contributed to the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund have won at the 71st Emmy Awards.

With 12 awards, including for best drama, the final season of Game of Thrones was the big winner of the evening. Chernobyl brought home 10 awards, including for best limited series and outstanding directing for limited series.

Fleabag dominated in the comedy categories, winning a total of six awards including for best comedy series and best writing. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who earlier this year won the ScreenSkills writing award at the annual Women in Film and TV (WFTV) Awards for her work on Fleabag and Killing Eve, also won best actress in a comedy.
