Sarah Snook, who played Shiv Roy in Succession, won the Emmy afor Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

'Thanks to everyone who voted and for loving the show as much as we did as a cast making it and as a crew making it,' Snook said in her acceptance speech, after accepting the Emmy from Jodie Foster.

'We put our all into it and the bar was set so high. I think that's what spurred us on from every department. We all gave it our best, led by (series creator) Jesse Armstrong and (director) Mark Mylod and my cast who I love so much and I'm going to miss,' as reported by Variety.

Snook also thanked her family: 'To my mom and dad, I love you. Thank you for having a dress-up box when I was a kid. This is where it gets you!

'Also the biggest thank you though is to someone who won't understand anything I'm saying at the moment but I carried her with me in this last season. Really it was her who carried me. It's very easy to act when you're pregnant because you've got hormones raging. It was the proximity of her life growing inside me that gave me the strength to do this and this performance. I love you so much. It's all for you from here on out.'

Succession led this year's Emmy nominations, with 27 -- including Best Drama, Lead Actress (Sarah Snook) and a record three lead actor noms (Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong).

The Last of Us -- the first video game adaptation to receive major Emmy attention -- followed with 24 noms, and Season 2 of The White Lotus had 23.
