HBO swept the marquee Comedy and Drama series categories tonight at the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which just wrapped on Fox live from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Game Of Thrones capped the winningest Emmy year ever with its 12th award — and fourth of the night — by scoring the Best Drama Series trophy and beating sentimental favorite Mad Men in the AMC series’ final shot in the category. It was HBO’s first Drama Series win since The Sopranos.

Meanwhile, Veep broke Modern Family‘s streak of wins in the Outstanding Comedy Series race with a victory. The show also marked another Outstanding Comedy Actress win for Julia-Louis Dreyfus, who won her fourth in a row in that category and sixth overall.

The night was dominated by HBO, which finished with 43 wins overall including last week’s Creative Arts Emmys. Second place? NBC, with 12.

While Mad Men missed its shot at a record fifth Drama Series win, it wasn’t a total wash: Jon Hamm won the Outstanding Drama Actor award for the first time in eight nominations.

Another HBO effort, its limited series Olive Kitteridge took six wins, including Best Actor and Actress wins for Richard Jenkins and Frances McDormand. And in the hyped category of Variety Talk Series, Jon Stewart’s farewell season topped farewell seasons of Late Night With David Letterman and The Colbert Report to take the top prize.

Here’s how the night went down per Deadline’s TV team, which provided commentary, analysis and everything in between:

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:35 pm

And we’re back on Sundays after last year’s detour to a Monday so then broadcaster NBC could stay out of the way of its pre-season NFL games. Of course, its worthy also mention that tonight’s Emmys finds itself up against the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football over on the Comcast-owned network. All of which means we better see some awards show drama tonight on Fox … hear what we’re saying Mr. Samberg?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:36 pm

BTW – they are watching Fox’s football coverage in the theater …as Veep’s Tony Hale revealed.

E!’s Who’s Sweating Most Red Carpet is in its final moments. Who discussed their sweat best?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:41 pm

Lot of potential history could happen tonight with two chances of an African-American being the Best Actress Drama winner. Then there’s Game Of Thrones matching or beating the all the time record for most wins in a single year. And both Vince Gilligan and Jon Hamm could get their names in the books with wins tonight

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:47 pm

Less shady and more looking for shade I say

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20154:50 pm

We hear first category: best supporting actress in a comedy series

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:50 pm

That should be fun

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:52 pm

No need to step into the specifics of the swamp out there today but really can’t they cancel Ryan Seacrest hosting these Red Carpet snorefests on E! like they did American Idol?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:55 pm

From the Microsoft Theater, Deadline’s Pete Hammond says “Inside at the Emmys we are watching the NFL post game show which is being broadcast from the red carpet. Hope the Emmys are not as boring as that Dallas game.” Amen to that Pete

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20154:55 pm

Why does Ryan Seacrest pronounce Jimmy Kimmel “fearless” and then show him that’s he’s wearing a tux from his own Seacrest label? “You’re wearing yourself? That’s masterbating!” Kimmel says – best commentary on/from this year’s red carpet. 

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20154:55 pm

Ouch, Dominic. RySea’s hair alone deserves a special effects emmy for surviving this heat.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20154:58 pm

No word yet on who is presenting the Best Drama Series award tonight – it’s “TBD” according to the official rundown

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:00 pm

Showtime!

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:02 pm

And we have a SNL Digital Short starting the Emmys – big stretch Andy

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20155:02 pm

This year’s Emmys is setting a record for references to feces.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:04 pm

Four minutes for the opening …

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20155:05 pm

“Suck it books”. This is already my favorite Emmys ever. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:06 pm

When in TV doubt, always cut to Kerry Washington …new awards ceremony rule, Yes?

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20155:06 pm

Samberg drops a Cosby/Subway Jared joke early in the monologue and you could feel the cringe shudder through the audience on the other side of the TV NOT AN INSULT

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:10 pm

That Fred Savage reaction shot begins the Fox new show promo love – The Grinder

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:11 pm

Here’s what things looked like before Samberg hit the stage

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:11 pm

That Twitter pic makes Andy look like the model for the Oscar statute

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:14 pm

Amy and Amy action starts the presentations – good opening safetynet

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:15 pm

Winner: Allison Janney, “Mom”, Supporting Actress, Comedy 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:16 pm

Alison Janney has this Emmy thing down — 7 wins! You did win the lottery

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:17 pm

Real pros like Janney come prepared – which is why after thanking Les and Nina, she can so easily break into song

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:18 pm

Love me some stats TV Academy

Jeremy Gerard September 20, 20155:19 pm

Allison didn’t even break a bead after singing AND getting in her PSA.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:20 pm

One award down but could we see this being back to the future night? Hold on isn’t that kind of every Emmy show?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:24 pm

Cutting to clips with the nominees… has SNL Digital Shorts mantra gotten into the Emmy bones this year? The writers never get enough air time on TV do they? I think there is a reason for that

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:25 pm

Winner: Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Tony Roche for Veep, Comedy Writing

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:25 pm

Nice exit for Iannucci

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:27 pm

“Back again” – now that’s how you enter Ricky Gervais. Still one of the best hosts of anything ever. He’s getting more laughs now than the entire show was so far. “Bob’s your uncle” indeed

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:28 pm

Winner: Tony Hale, Veep, Supporting Actor, Comedy

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:29 pm

Second Veep win tonight and second overall for Tony Hale …lots of memories but can we have some new blood. God, he whips that thank you speech off — & gives the “I love my castmates’ line

Jeremy Gerard September 20, 20155:30 pm

There’s some serious speed reading happening here tonight. 

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20155:34 pm

Veep wins two of the first three comedy categories. Are they setting the stage for a Modern Family upset in the best series category at the hands of the HBO White House comedy?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:35 pm

Winner: Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Tony Roche for Veep, Comedy Writing

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20155:35 pm

Tony Hale moments before his win: https://twitter.com/MrTonyHale/status/645755076632449028

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:36 pm

God, did Samberg learn nothing from watching all those people host SNL … a trick Taxi joke? 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:37 pm

Yes, the Creative Emmys winners – the people and categories not deemed worth putting on the actual big show …might want to rethink that Bruce

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:37 pm

What’s under the hat Bradley? 

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20155:37 pm

His fan fiction script about Truman Capote, Dominic.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:38 pm

Starting to feel like Jill Soloway is co-hosting the Emmys tonight…with these video clips. Or carrying the show is too much for Sanberg

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:38 pm

Winner: Jill Soloway, Directing Comedy for Transparent

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:40 pm

I’m probably not qualified to talk fashion but that suit Jill Soloway is wearing is ground breaking … like this win, which is the first Primetime Emmy win for Amazon. Though they did win three at the Creative Emmys last week. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:40 pm

BTW – that’s how you make a cultural pitch folks: clear, emotional and directional 

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20155:42 pm

First win of the night for the other main challenger to Modern Family in the best comedy series category, Amazon’s Transparent. Creator Jill Soloway won for directing, echoing her eloquent speech at the Golden Globes for rights for transgender people. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:42 pm

And welcome to the network time filler part courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:43 pm

Winner: Jeffrey Tambor, Lead Actor Comedy for Transparent

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:43 pm

Really ragging this out aren’t you Kimmel, when we all knew it was Tambor

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20155:44 pm

First win of the night for the other main challenger to Modern Family in the best comedy series category, Amazon’s Transparent. Creator Jill Soloway won for directing, and echoed her eloquent speech at the Golden Globes, calling for rights for transgender people, which she said was a “civil rights issue.” 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:45 pm

This is a big win – for Amazon, for Transparent, for Tambor and for the Transgender community. Nice shout out to the Amazon PR team – who ever does that? 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:46 pm

BOOM! Transparent is ready for this big and 5th win

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20155:46 pm

Another emotional speech for Tambor, ending with a thank-you for “letting us be part of the change.” This makes its a tie in the comedy race – two awards each so far for Transparent and Veep. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:49 pm

This Taraji P Henson, Kerry Washington and Mary J. Blige ad has better moves than anything on this show so far — and I’m not saying we need Neil Patrick Harris anytime soon

Jeremy Gerard September 20, 20155:52 pm

OK before we go getting too serious can I just say I’m still laughing at Jimmy’s outstanding visual summation of the entire last season of Girls? And what’s up with all the cutaways to Gaby Hoffman?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:53 pm

WInner: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lead Actress Comedy for Veep

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:53 pm

Poelher goes gangta .. but Julia wins again

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:54 pm

They do it to politicians, can Emmys be term limited out? 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:55 pm

More Trump digs – well, they are there to easily pick up

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:55 pm

Nice shout-out to the Baltimore crew by Veep Julia — being that the show has relocated to Cali for the next season – Go tax incentives!

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20155:56 pm

It continues to be a two-horse comedy race, with Veep pulling ahead of Transparent (3-2). Tipping the scales is best lead actress winner, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won for each of the four seasons the show has been on the air under departing creator Armando Iannucci.  

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:57 pm

Did we just see Emmy Anger translating  -or more easy Hollywood hits at the GOP?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20155:58 pm

WInner: The Voice, Reality Competition Series

Dominic Patten September 20, 20155:59 pm

This tweet from HBO on Julia’s VEEP win is too good —

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:01 pm

NBC’s The Voice has helped make the historically lopsided reality competition category a race, creating a rivalry with long-dominant The Amazing Race. The two have now alternated as winners the last four years. And The Voice, with its 2 Emmys, is now the only show with multiple wins besides Race, which has staggering 10. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:05 pm

James Corden just got next year’s Emmy hosting gig!!

Empire backstage

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:05 pm

James Corden takes selfie after getting audience to its feet for the Ernst & Young accountants. Emmy first?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:07 pm

Winner: Jane Anderson, Writing, Limited, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:09 pm

Aww .. Jane got the first playoff of the night. Was it the orange is the new winner dress? Couldn’t be that generous speech

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:10 pm

This is the third Emmy win for Olive Kitteridge, which headed into the main telecast as a frontrunner. 

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:10 pm

Winner: Regina King, Supporting Actress, Limited, Movie or Special for American Crime

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:12 pm

No surprise Regina King looks so stunned. American Crime — a rare miniseries on broadcast — was considered an underdog. Now things are getting interesting.  

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:14 pm

HBO Now will not crash from this password giveaway …

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:16 pm

Winner: Lisa Cholodenko, Directing, Limited, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:19 pm

Where’s the scary nun from Game of Thrones when you need her?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:20 pm

Thanks Samberg – looks like you just shut down Hollywood tomorrow. No really thank you

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:21 pm

Just because you need to know – it’s 1hour and 21 minutes in. Not even half way. Say that again so you feel it – not even halfway

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:22 pm

Fox is trying to beat CNN’s GOP debate for length. Where’s Jake Tapper?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:23 pm

Where’s Jake Tapper? Hell, where’s Trump?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:24 pm

A really great actor has the courage to be an Emmy presenter while his own show is on over on Showtime. Hi Liev

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:25 pm

Winner: Bill Murray, Supporting Actor, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:25 pm

This music – it’s a low energy as a Jeb Bush rally

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:27 pm

Both the comedy and miniseries categories are being split between two shows so far, Olive Kitteridge & American Crime; Veep and Transparent. Not a lot of spreading the wealth tonight.  

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:27 pm

I wish Rob Lowe had come out as his Moonbeam City character

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:27 pm

Winner: Frances McDormand, Supporting Actress, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:28 pm

Another funny Samberg music video: “I’d like to Give the World an Emmy” ends with an a statuette spearing a guy in the chest. It’s like today’s comedy series:  tinged with drama.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:28 pm

Thank you Francis – a perfect speech. Keep it short and sharp

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:32 pm

Winner: Bill Murray, Supporting Actor, Limited, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:32 pm

Winner: Frances McDormand, Lead Actress, Limited, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:33 pm

Look at the ad for the return of the biggest show on the Big 4 – but Fox’s Empire got overlooked in many categories. Could Taraji bring it all historically home?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:36 pm

Winner: Richard Jenkins, Lead Actor, Limited, Movie or Special for Olive Kitteridge

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:38 pm

Olive Kitteridge is steamrolling through the longform categories with five wins tonight, 7 total.

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:41 pm

Yes, this show is running long, but Show In Memoriam? Worth the time

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:41 pm

The wrapped-series tribute just offered major spoilers for two heavily serialized dramas.

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:42 pm

Winner: Olive Kitteridge, Outstanding Limited, Movie or Special

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:44 pm

Olive Kitteridge completed its sweep, ending the night with 6 Emmys and 8 total, currently tying HBO drama Game of Thrones for most wins in a year. (GOT‘s categories are yet to come tonight.) 

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:46 pm

Francis McDormand finally addressed host Andy Samberg naming tonight’s trophy show the Suck It Books Emmys. Picking up ‘Olive Kitteridge’s
win for best limited series, she exclaimed, “and it started as a book! Okay,
Andy?!”

Dominic Patten September 20, 20156:49 pm

Oh, George R. R. Martin was too busy writing the new book to show up at Comic-Con this year but made it to Emmys

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20156:50 pm

Coming back from commercial break, Andy Samberg acknowledged viewer anger over all the spoilers in Emmy’s  Show In Memoriam: “Welcome back to The Spoiler Awards. Yes, everyone on every show died.” 

 

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:51 pm

Winner: The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Writing for a Variety Series

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:54 pm

Jon Stewart sporting the trademark retired late-night host beard. This was Daily Show’s first win in the category in the category, which had been dominated by Colbert Report.

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20156:54 pm

Winner: Inside Amy Schumer, Outstanding Variety Sketch Series

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:55 pm

Jon Stewart sporting the trademark retired late-night host beard. This was Daily Show‘s first win in the category in three years.

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20156:58 pm

Like Melissa McCarthy a few years ago, Amy Schumer is riding a breakthrough year, with a big Emmy win following a hit summer movie. 

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:01 pm

Nice way to kick off the new variety sketch category. Amy Schumer and Kay & Peele helped revive the classic genre in primetime.

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:02 pm

Winner: Chuck O’Neil, Directing, Variety Series for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:03 pm

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:05 pm

Winner: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Outstanding Variety Series

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:06 pm

They will be celebrating this win over at CBS tomorrow – Jon Stewart is an EP on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:07 pm

This speech from Jon could use more of this tweet from Comedy Central

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:07 pm

A clean sweep for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The fake newsmagazine had lost its Emmy shine, overshadowed by The Colbert Report the last couple of years. But when it came time to say good-bye, Emmy voters returned to their long-time favorite. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart final tally stands at 11 Emmys in the top variety category. 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:08 pm

Oh, Jon, we hardly knew ye .. and we know we’ll see you again

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:11 pm

Winner: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, ‘Game of Thrones’, Writing for Drama Series

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:11 pm

Game Of Thrones is now tied with The West Wing for the most Emmy wins in a single year …nice freeze D.B.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:12 pm

And we had the first bleep of the night with that Game Of Thrones speech

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:13 pm

That time delay can’t change the fact that I know ALL the swear words. They said “goldarn”, right?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:20 pm

Winner: Uzo Aduba for Orange Is The New Black, Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:21 pm

I kind of feel feelings after her acceptance speech. 

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:22 pm

A rare feat for Aduba, who continued her winning ways as her show, Orange is the New Black, moved from the comedy to the drama category and she moved from guest to supporting actress

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:22 pm

Winner: David Nutter, Game of Thrones, Directing for a Drama Series

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:25 pm

With David Nutter’s directing win, Game Of Thrones now has the most Emmy wins in a single year ever – sorry President Bartlett and West Wing, your rule is over; the Iron Throne reigns

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:27 pm

Winning both writing and directing is a strong statement for GOT. Will all the pre-Emmy the buzz translate into a first drama win for a fantasy series?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:29 pm

Winner: Peter Dinklage, Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Game of Thrones

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:30 pm

PETER DINKLAGE HAS A MAN BUN AND IT DOESN’T LOOK TERRIBLE.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:31 pm

Another win for Game Of Thrones with this one for Peter Dinklage – the record is strong now for the HBO show. And another win for Dinklage in the Best Supporting Actor Drama category – he looked honestly humbled – a rare Hollywood face

Lisa de Moraes September 20, 20157:36 pm

In Memoriam: anyone left out?

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:38 pm

Body of Proof co-star Windell Middlebrooks, who died in March suddenly at age 36 was among those who didn’t make the list.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:40 pm

Could this be it for Mr. Hamm?

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:40 pm

Hear that roar for Hamm’s win! He’s up!

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:41 pm

Winner: Jon Hamm, Mad Men, Lead Actor in a Drama Series

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:41 pm

Jon Hamm gets a standing O from the crowd.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:41 pm

Looks like the first standing ovation of the night for Jon Hamm’s long awaited win – besides the accountants of course

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:42 pm

Bridesmaid no more. The Susan Lucci of the Primetime Emmy Awards is walking away with a trophy on his eighth and final chance. There was such a relief on Jon Hamm’s face when his name was finally read after the envelope was open. He literally leaped to the stage.

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:44 pm

Will we see some history with the Beat Actress Drama category?

Erik Pedersen September 20, 20157:44 pm

Winner: Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder, Lead Actress in a Drama Series

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:46 pm

Ross A. Lincoln September 20, 20157:51 pm

Mel Brooks out to present the best comedy series award and he gets tonight’s second standing O.

Thank you America – you can keep the country – England

Nellie Andreeva September 20, 20157:54 pm

What a going-away gift for Veep creator Armando Iannucci, who stepped down after 4 seasons. Anyway he will reconsider? 

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:55 pm

Big roar for the return of Tracy Morgan – welcome home!!

Dominic Patten September 20, 20157:56 pm

Tracy is going to be hosting SNL this season – so this is just the warm up kiddies
