All the historic wins at the 69th annual Emmy awards

It was an fantastic thing to watch so many female-fronted stories be embraced in this way; stories that allow actors like Emmy winners Elizabeth Moss (Outstanding Lead Actress-Drama), Ann Dowd (Outstanding Supporting Actress-Drama), Nicole Kidman (Outstanding Lead Actress-TV Movie/Limited Series), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Outstanding Lead Actress-Comedy), and Laura Dern (Outstanding Supporting Actress-TV Movie/Limited Series) the opportunity to shine. Jean-Marc Vallee won his first Emmy for directing the show.

Louis-Dreyfus has won two Emmys for previous roles: one for her role in "Seinfeld" and one for her role in "The New Adventures of Old Christine".

Riz Ahmed won the Emmy for lead actor in a limited series or movie for HBO's "The Night Of". Black Mirror: San Junipero was named best TV movie. Waithe, who previously credited the "black girl magic" onset, took home the writing trophy for her superb episode ("Thanksgiving") of Master of None, marking the first time a black woman won Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
