The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Game of Thrones and RuPaul's Drag Race were the big winners in the areas of comedy, drama and reality competition, respectively, at the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which took place Sept. 17.

Among the awards that Amazon's "Maisel" snagged were best comedy series, best lead actress in a comedy ( Rachel Brosnahan ) and best supporting actress in a comedy ( Alex Borstein ). "Thrones" won for best drama and best supporting actor in a drama ( Peter Dinklage ), a week after taking seven Creative Arts Emmys the previous weekend.

"Drag Race" won the award for best reality-competition show—making history because it was the first show to win for best series and host ( RuPaul Charles ) in that genre in the same year. ( The show also won four Creative Arts Emmys. )

In other LGBTQ-related news, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace scored three Emmy wins—for best directing for a limited series ( Ryan Murphy ), best actor in a linited series ( Darren Criss ) and outstanding limited series.

Among those snubbed this year were the shows Atlanta ( shut out of top categories, despite 16 nominations ) and The Handmaid's Tale.

Saturday Night Live's Michael Che and Colin Jost hosted the event.
