The 2017 Emmy Awards celebrating all television’s best took place, and we have our fave Emmy Award moments and looks right here! 

The 69th annual celebration of television’s highest and most anticipated award, the Emmys, took place last night. Big Little Lies won big! The show won Best Limited series, Best Director (Jean-Marc Vallée), Best Actress (Nicole Kidman) and Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) in the Limited TV Series or Movie category.

History was made with Riz Ahmed becoming the first South Asian to nab a “best acting” award with his Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series. Meanwhile, Aziz Ansari, creator of Master of None, took home the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, which he shared with Lena Waithe, an actor and writer on the show. Lena made Emmy history too, becoming the first African-American woman to win in this category. The crowd gave them a standing ovation, and Lena said, “I gotta thank God or else I wouldn’t be standing here, I want to thank my mother for inspiring this story and allowing me to share it with the world. Thank you, Aziz, for pushing me to co-write this, bro. Now we’re standing here. I love you forever.”
