LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Streaming media and premium cable television had a big night at the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards, with Netflix’s dystopian drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” taking top honors for outstanding drama series.

Netflix programs also won prizes for outstanding television movie for “Black Mirror: San Junipero” while Elisabeth Moss won best lead actress for “Handmaid’s Tale.”

HBO cleaned up as well, winning awards for its shows “Veep” (outstanding comedy series), Big Little Lies (outstanding limited series), and variety talk series for “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.”

The awards were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, with Stephen Colbert handling the hosting duties but his catchet did not save the awards show from matching last year’s dismal ratings. According to Nielsen, about 11.4 million viewers tuned in on Sunday, which was about the same as last year, and down markedly from the 17.7 million viewers who watched the presentation ceremony in 2013.
