Do you agree with this year's victor for Outstanding Comedy Series?

Eight tonally diverse comedies - from Netflix's relentlessly sunny Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to HBO's pitch-dark Barry - faced off at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, and it was no laughing matter.

"This wasn't supposed to happen", said a surprised Foy. "Thank you so much".

The Assassination of Gianni Versace took the Emmy for best-limited series and brought an acting trophy for Darren Criss, who played the gay serial killer who murdered the Italian designer in Miami in 1997.

"Most important, vote", she exclaimed.

"And one of the things I love the most about this show ... is that it's about a woman who is finding her voice anew, and it's something that's happening all over the country right now", Brosnahan said.

The biggest award so far won by a broadcast network was Saturday Night Live for best variety sketch series.

Below are the winners from the night, so check and see if your favorite show won an Emmy!
