The 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, TV’s highest honors, saw some of the Television Academy’s old favorites pitted against newer critical darlings and legacy prestige networks battle it out against streaming services.

The widely acclaimed Fleabag managed to break Veep’s comedy winning streak with four awards, while Game of Thrones maintained its dominance as Best Drama, beating out freshmen series like Pose and Succession. That win, and others for the series, helped HBO regain its title of the most wins—a prize it shared with Netflix last year—with nine for the night and 34 across the creative arts and primetime ceremonies.

The Primetime Emmy Awards aired live from the Microsoft Theater on Fox. Below is a full winners list (winners in bold).
