ADTV: 67th Annual Emmy Awards Results

The 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out tonight and proved HBO total dominance of the current television landscape, wining TV Movie for Bessie, Limited Series for Olive Kitteridge, Comedy Series for Veep, and Drama Series for Game of Thrones. Otherwise, it was a history-making evening when Viola Davis became the first African-American actress to win an Emmy for Drama Actress for her role in How to Get Away with Murder. Her eloquent speech included the much-Tweeted line, “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.” Jon Hamm also finally won an Emmy, breaking the winless acting streak for Mad Men performers in its final season.

On the Drama Series side, Game of Thrones bested The West Wing’s previous Emmy record for most wins in a single season – 12 wins including Drama Series and a surprise, very left-field second win for Peter Dinklage. HBO’s Veep also won big tonight, taking home trophies for Comedy Series, Comedy Actress, and Comedy Supporting Actor. This ended Modern Family‘s streak of consecutive Comedy Series wins.

Here are the winners in the televised categories (previous winners were announced in the Creative Arts ceremony last weekend):
