Emmy wins for Viola Davis, Jon Hamm ‘Transparent,’ ‘Veep’.

Here’s the latest from Sunday night’s 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (all times local): After the serious moments, Morgan began cracking jokes again. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Long-standing barriers fell at Sunday’s Emmy Awards as Viola Davis became the first non-white actress to claim top drama acting honors, Jon Hamm finally won for “Mad Men,” and “Game of Thrones” overcame Emmy anti-fantasy resistance to claim the top drama award.On Sunday evening, one of the most groan-inducing Emmy streaks was finally broken by Veep, better known tonight as the series that introduced some much-needed excitement into the year’s telecast.

He says after waking up from a coma, he was ecstatic to find out, “I wasn’t the one who messed up.” The fantasy drama captured the award for best drama at Sunday’s award show, just minutes after the pay cable network’s series “Veep” won for best comedy. Had Modern Family won its sixth consecutive comedy-series Emmy on Sunday, the sitcom would have made history as the only series to win that category six years in a row. (Last year, Modern Family tied Frasier with its five consecutive wins.) In recent years, the show’s Emmy momentum slowed a bit, with Ty Burrell winning the only acting award last year for his role as lovable dope Phil Dunphy. It won out over a highly competitive field that included the aforementioned Modern Family, Louie, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Transparent, Parks and Recreation, and Silicon Valley. Supporting comedy actress winner Allison Janney brought an unexpected friend with her to field questions from reporters backstage at the Emmys: lead comedy actress winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Other African-American actresses who prevailed Sunday were Uzo Aduba and Regina King, who won for supporting performances. “Mad Men” star Hamm claimed the best drama actor Emmy that eluded him seven times before.

And while Transparent did win the comedy series Golden Globe, some Emmy voters might have been torn by the Amazon series’ inclusion in comedy when the series has so many dramatic moments. It won its fifth consecutive award at last year’s ceremony, meaning each of its first five seasons had been named Outstanding Comedy Series — of course, that run has ended tonight. With arms linked, the “Mom” and “Veep” stars spoke about their wins, the discomfort of posing for photos on the red carpet, and the time Louis-Dreyfus met Mary Tyler Moore during a photo shoot and started to bawl uncontrollably in her presence.

Henson a run for “red carpet gold.” The Emmys host gave out a password to HBO’s streaming service HBO Now, saying he knew many watchers couldn’t afford to pay for the service. He also noted that the pay network has said it isn’t concerned about paying customers sharing their passwords. “The Voice” producer Mark Burnett and host Carson Daly snapped selfies with their new statuettes after the show won the outstanding reality competition. Jill Soloway, who based the series on the life of her own “moppa,” as she calls her parent, used her directing trophy acceptance speech to ask for equal rights for transgender individuals. “It is legal in the majority of U.S. states to refuse to rent to trans people,” she said, saying the country has a civil rights problem that must be addressed.

Tambor plays Maura — formerly Mort — Pfefferman, a transgender character of Amazon’s “Transparent.” He dedicated his Emmy to the transgender community, thanking them for their patience, courage and inspiration. Aduba won the supporting actress in a drama trophy for “Orange is the New Black,” which was switched under academy rules this year from comedy competition. Allison Janney of “Mom” and Tony Hale of “Veep” were repeat winners for supporting comedy acting honors. “Olive Kitteridge,” based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Elizabeth Strout, nearly swept the limited series categories, with six trophies including the top award and lead acting honors for Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins and a supporting award for Bill Murray. “The Voice” won a best reality series trophy, breaking the hold that “The Amazing Race” long had on the category and snaring an award that always eluded “American Idol.” “So many shows, so little,” he sang, before entering a “TV viewing bunker” to binge-view on all the nominated shows. She said she was quoting her show’s writers in saying, “what a great honor it must be for you to honor me tonight.” Then she said Donald Trump actually said that.

Blackwell, a British writer, joked, “We’d also like to thank HBO for letting us come over here and make fun of American politics and make American money.” The actress won her seventh career Emmy Sunday for playing the title role in the CBS comedy “Mom.” Despite the show’s title, she’s a supporting actress to series star Anna Faris, playing dysfunctional Bonnie Plunkett. The video poked fun at the massive amounts of television now and audiences’ struggled to keep up, locking Samberg in a bunker for a year while he got caught up.

The men are faring little better, with Pablo Schreiber fanning himself with his hands and Jonathan Banks ditching his tuxedo jacket and telling fans, “You know how stupid we all are to be out in this!” With temperatures nearing 100 degrees in downtown Los Angeles, fans in the bleachers outside the Emmy Awards are resorting to fans — both paper and electric — to keep cool.
