Comedy series Fleabag and its main lead and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge without a doubt were the stipulated rockstar of this year's Emmy Awards.
Not only did the actor surprise everyone by winning the Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her work as Fleabag, but she also made her fans super proud by winning Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
Waller-Bridge beat industry stalwart Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the same category for her work in the final season of Veep. With the win, she has become the only person after Tina Fey to win an Emmy for writing and acting in the same year.
So naturally, this victory was celebrated and appreciated by a lot of people and here some of the best reactions for this win.
This is such a well deserved win. I've only just watched #Fleabag last week. It gave me so many laughter moments, along with real touching moments. Brilliant writing & actors all round. #pheobewallerbridge https://t.co/NYibHCBdDH— jacqz1 (@jacquiez1) September 23, 2019
"It's the word of mouth stuff that just kills me, knowing people have said 'I've told my friend, and my friend told their friend & now my whole family are watching it' -that's the stuff that's really special" Phoebe Waller-Bridge backstage #Emmys #Fleabaghttps://t.co/tZkcecIkJk— Natalie Jamieson (@Nat_Jamieson) September 23, 2019
I know I’m on my period because I cried just seeing photos of #PhoebeWallerBridge at the Emmy’s, so imagine the needless sobbing that manifested over her winning.— Jackie Kalister (@bottichilli) September 23, 2019
Fleabag season 2 is flawless. It’s so nice to know that it is getting the proper recognition. And to hear Phoebe Waller-Bridge gush about Andrew Scott melted my heart! I’m so happy for them all! #Fleabag #Emmys2019— Chelsea Hassi (@hasslehussi) September 23, 2019
