Emmys 2017: Winners Of The 69th Annual Emmy Awards

Elisabeth Moss won her first-ever Emmy Sunday night for her performance as Offred in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.

"The Handmaid's Tale" was the victor of the best television drama series Emmy Award Sunday night.

Moss' speech wasn't the only newsworthy one of the evening - Nicole Kidman spotlighted the "insidious" disease of domestic abuse as she picked up her Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series award for Big Little Lies.

This year's award show was dominated by streaming services, including wins for best drama, best actress in a drama and supporting actor in a drama.

Veep won one of the night's top prizes for best comedy series.

"I've been doing TV since 1995", she tweeted."This will be my 1st time going to the Emmys & I'm presenting an award!" Glover also won Best Comedy Actor - in fact, all three leading men who won Emmys this year were people of color: Glover, Sterling K. Brown (Best Drama Actor for "This is Us"), and Riz Ahmed (Best Movie/Mini Actor, "The Night Of").

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards during host Stephen Colbert's monologue.

Moss started off her speech by saying, "Um, so insane!"

The Creative Arts Emmys, the umbrella under which "Fixer Upper" fell, were held the week prior to the 69th Emmy Awards ceremony Sunday night.

The series, adapted from Australian author Liane Moriarty's book of the same name, also scored awards for best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Laura Dern), best Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), best Directing and best Limited Series. It also won outstanding limited series. Baldwin spoke directly to Trump, who has complained in the past that he was cheated out of a trophy for hosting "Celebrity Apprentice": "I suppose I should say, 'At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy'". This Is Us Dan Fogelman's comedy-drama series may have lost out to The Handmaid's Tale on several categories, but the show that everyone's been talking about did win big in the Leading Actor category. Donald Glover of the FX series "Atlanta" won the award. Waithe meanwhile, was not only the first African American woman to be nominated for comedy writing but also the first black woman to win.

Lena Waithe, who co-wrote the Netflix sitcom "Master of None" with Aziz Ansari, became the first black woman to win best comedy writing.

Colbert also recruited Julia Louis Dreyfus, in character as President Selina Meyer. But Netflix was well-represented this year, with its hit "Stranger Things" receiving 5 Emmys, "The Crown" earning 4, and both "Master of None" and "Black Mirror: San Junipero" with 2.

The Emmy for outstanding variety talk series goes to "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" for the second consecutive year.

And comedy actress victor Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she hoped "this is the beginning of something even better in our country, and the world".

"If you do not like what is happening, support a candidate who agrees with you", she said.

And then The Handmaid's Tale capped its run with its fifth win of the night and eighth overall for Outstanding Drama Series.
