The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards aired on Sunday, Sept. 22 on Fox. This year’s awards show, a hostless affair, celebrated the final seasons of Game of Thrones, Veep and The Big Bang Theory. Thrones took home Best Drama Series, in a win that was largely predicted, though several other wins were more surprising, including Best Comedy Series, Fleabag. The latter show’s creator and star, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, had a big night, also taking home Best Writing in a Comedy Series and Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, over Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was largely expected to win for her final season of Veep.

Game of Thrones went into the ceremony with a record-breaking 32 nominations, followed by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which nabbed 20, and both Barry and Fosse/Verdon, which tied with 17. Many awards were handed out last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys, which honors categories like music direction, choreography, cinematography, production design, editing and voice-over performance. Notable winners on that night included The Handmaid’s Tale guest stars Bradley Whitford and Cherry Jones and Maisel guest stars Jane Lynch and Luke Kirby.
