Full list of Primetime Emmys winners here.

Three of the most talked about comedies series of the year got their due at The Emmys last night as Jon Stewart has ended his Daily Show run with an Emmys sweep for talk/variety series, Transparent got honors for Jeffrey Tambor and series creator Jill Soloway, and Veep received its rightful due as a truly outstanding comedy series with four Emmys.

Even more notable than that, only one broadcast network sitcom, CBS’ Mom, got an Emmy. Everything else is highly touted cable shows like Veep, Inside Amy Schumer or shows on streaming networks like Amazon.
