There's definitely nothing mini about this win!!
One of the first big surprises of the night happened when Kathy Bates won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a TV Miniseries or Movie!
So why was it so surprising? Not because she beat out her American Horror Story: Coven co-stars in Frances Conroy and Angela Bassett. But because she managed to beat out THE Julia Roberts!
Obviously Kathy is more than deserving of the award, but by the looks of her reaction, she DEFINITELY wasn't expecting to win! She also said in her acceptance speech that she didn't think she would win, so there's that too.
Either way, CONGRATS!
Watch her acceptance speech (above)!

The Host might be getting some mixed reviews right about now, but that's okay!
We know a few things will come of it: it'll probably get a sequel because of Stephenie Meyere's fans, and it'll put both Saoirse Ronan AND Max Irons on the map!
Sure, Saoirse has had some amazing turns in movies so far, and has a bunch of good ones prepped, but Max is pretty new — and that's why we're so pumped to see him as King Edward IV (above) in the new STARZ series The White Queen!
Coming in August, we're told it's a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history:

Anyone who has ever wondered what happened to that adorable kid from Finding Neverland and Tim Burton's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is about to get one HELLUVA rude awakening!

However, it seems Ryan is NOT
