The actress, who has just won her first-ever Emmys for her portrayal of elizabeth holmes in The Dropout, could be heard excaliming, "oh my God!" after learning about her big win. 

Amanda Seyfried was completely taken aback when she heard that she's won Outstanding Lead Actress In a Limited Anthology Series or Movie for her portrayal of Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout. This is her first-ever Emmy win. 

She was taken to the stage by her husband Thomas Sadokis. The duo celebrated her win at the 74th Emmys with a kiss. 

In her acceptance speech, Seyfried talked about how her work was "really hard" but she said that it also "the best time of my life."

The Dropout is a series based on the ABC Audio podcast of the same name, and focusses on the rise and fall of former entreprenuer Elizabeth Holmes and her company, Theranos. The show is all about Holmes's deceptions and lies for which she has now been convicted in a court of law in America. 

The Emmy Awards 2022 is the one of the first major award shows to happen this year to happen in a more 'normal' setting since the pandemic hit us back in 2020.

As reported by ABC News, it was a full show at the red carpet this year with the entire ceremony taking place indoors like it used to and in front of a full studio audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. 

Interestingly, it is also the first major Emmys is being broadcasted live since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards.

Host Kenan Thompson, who is also marking his debut as emcee of the Emmys, joked in his opening monologue about how Zendaya cannot date Leonardo DiCaprio as she recently turned 26, and took multiple digs at streaming giant Netflix for losing subscribers. 

“This should be a night of appreciating artistry and creativity and removing the stress of it all out,” he was quoted as saying by The Associated Press. 

Lionsgate Play is exclusively streaming the 74th Emmy Awards in India.
