SPDR S&P Insurance ETF, KIE, fell one spot, coming in third this week. Invesco KBW Regional Banking ETF, KBWR, and Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund, XLF, rounded out the top five, respectively.

Among the night’s other winners: “RuPaul’s Drag Race’s” RuPaul Charles broke the record for most consecutive hosting wins, landing his fifth consecutive Emmy for reality or competition program host. Eddie Murphy, meanwhile, won his first-ever Emmy, for hosting “Saturday Night Live” — which landed
