HBO's Post Emmy Awards Reception- Inside

Directing, Comedy: Donald Glover, "Atlanta".

Quebec director Jean-Marc Vallee also won an Emmy for his work on Big Little Lies. According to the Los Angeles Times, only 21 of the 114 writers nominated for drama series, comedy series, variety series and limited series, movie or dramatic special in 2017 were women.

NBC's "The Voice" won the third consecutive Emmy for outstanding reality-competition program.

The "In Memorian" segment had several notable exclusions, including Dick Gregory and Harry Dean Stanton.

Backstage after her-and the show's-victory at the 69th annual event, Louis-Dreyfus marveled at the major milestone.

The appearance has garnered mixed reactions on social media, many of which were critical.

"The things that make us different, those are our superpowers", Waithe proclaimed, speaking directly to her "LGBTQIA family". He adds that he's also done jobs that "you shouldn't admire or respect me for either so he and I have that in common". Jean-Marc Vallee won his first Emmy for directing the show.

He signed his name and thoughtfully examined the statuette closely at the trophy table backstage Sunday.

"Saturday Night Live" won the Emmy for outstanding variety sketch series, and Lorne Michaels, the show's creator and producer, said he remembered accepting the show's first Emmy for outstanding variety show after its first season in 1975-76.

Baldwin started out his acceptance speech night by ribbing Donald Trump, saying the president finally has his Emmy.

She also tied Cloris Leachman for the most acting Emmy wins with eight.

When she got up onstage, the actress dropped the f-bomb as she took the Emmy in her hands and once again when she thanked her mother, who was in the audience, for all of the love and support through the years.

"Veep" was this year's most nominated comedy series with a total of 17 Emmy bids.

Hosted by Stephen Colbert, the Emmys telecast surprised many in the crowd with a cameo appearance by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
