The 67th Emmy Awards was a night to remember. From Viola Davis' empowering speech, to Tracy Morgan presenting the final award, to host Andy Sandberg giving out his HBO Go account (which actually works), last night was full of memorable moments.

Speaking of HBO, their shows Veep and Game of Thrones had a big night as they took home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series. Jon Hamm finally won the coveted Lead Actor in a Drama award for his role as Don Dapper on Mad Men. Eighth times the charm right Jon?

But it was Viola Davis and Jeffrey Tambor who stole the show. Davis, who won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for How to Get Away with Murder, became the first African American woman to win the award. Tambor won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in Transparent, becoming the first actor to win an Emmy for portraying a transgender.
