She also won the Emmy for Best Writing for a Comedy Series. This award is Bridge's first Emmy win.

Taking the stage, Waller-Bridge said, "I am shaking. Oh my God, look at her. I am really shaking. I find writing really, really hard and really painful. But I would like to say, honestly from the bottom of my heart, that the reason I do it is this. So it's made it all really worth it guys, thank you so much," reported The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's really wonderful to know a dirty, pervy, angry messed-up woman can make it to the Emmys," she added.

Fleabag got nominated for 11 awards at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.
