The 2017 Emmy Awards hosted by The Late Show helmer Stephen Colbert was packed with funny bits, some big surprises, and plenty of Donald Trump jokes.

The Handmaid’s Tale tee’d up some of the biggest surprises of the night. Its Outstanding Drama win marks the first time a streaming service has won in that category (Yep, it beat Netflix to the punch). Speaking of Tale, Ann Dowd’s Supporting Actress win was one of the biggest shockers of the night.

But the night really belonged to HBO’s Big Little Lies, which won four of the major awards. And don’t count out network TV! NBC’s breakout hit This is Us received a couple of Emmys. Most notable: Sterling K. Brown won Lead Actor in a Drama.

Adding in the Creative Arts Emmys (those that aren’t broadcast), Saturday Night Live won overall with nine statues. Big Little Lies and Handmaid’s Tale came in second with eight a piece, while Stranger Things, The Night Of, Veep, and Westworld each scored five.
