HBO Dominates At 67th Prime Time Emmy Awards With Full List Of Winners

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Premium cable network HBO had a huge night at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, sweeping top honors in both drama and comedy with its shows "Game of Thrones" and "Veep" taking top honors.

"Game of Thrones" set a record for the most Emmy awards in a single season, breaking its four year streak of nominations and no wins for Outstanding Drama. "Game of Thrones" also led to trophies for supporting actor Peter Dinklage, director David Nutter, and series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who won for writing.

Jon Hamm won the Emmy for lead actor in a drama for his portrayal of Don Draper on the final season of AMC's hit drama "Mad Men." Viola Davis became the first black actress to win an Emmy for a leading role in a drama for her work on the hit ABC series “How To Get Away With Murder.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus earned her fourth consecutive win as comedy lead actress for her performace as a callow U.S. president on “Veep”. Other “Veep” winners included its writers and supporting actor Tony Hale.

Netflix and Amazon, both relative newcomers to scripted television, also took home awards, with the Netflix drama "Orange is the new black" garnering a trophy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for Uzo Aduba and for Amazon's transgender comedy "Transparent," producing awards for Jeffrey Tambor (lead actor in a comedy series) and series creator Jill Soloway who won a directing award (director in a comedy series).

Hosted by Andy Samberg, the awards gala took place at the Microsoft Theatre on Los Angeles on Sept. 20th. Ratings for the broadcast of the awards were down sharply from last year, dropping by 20% from last year. – Staff Writers
