Waithe wasn't the only LGBT woman to win an award.

Donald Glover has a lot to celebrate. Not only is he a successful recording artist, comedian and actor, but he can now add two-time Emmy-winning actor and director to his illustrious resume. And Glover lost in writing to Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe for Netflix's "Master of None".

"I think once you start to do that things start to get bad".

He said: "I want to thank Trump for making black people No. 1 on the most oppressed list". "He's the reason I'm probably up here".

"Big Little Lies" stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, who also served as producers on the HBO series, spoke about the importance of projects starring women and from women.

Hulu becomes an Emmy player With "The Handmaid's Tale", Hulu entered itself as a major awards contender.

Glover also broke a four-year streak of female directors taking home the award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

TV's golden night was decidedly more colorful than numerous other award shows that have attracted criticism for a lack of diversity. "Thank you Netflix for creating a attractive playground for us to play and shine on", she said.

Chicago Born Actress Lena Waithe Makes History With Emmy Win

Anyone who watched "The Cosby Show" in the 1980s remembers the popular wedding anniversary episodes where the Huxtable clan would honor Healthcliff's parents - Russell and Anna - with choreographed lip-synced routines. This is her sixth win for her work on "Veep".

She has been nominated for 24 Emmys over her decades-long career and now has won eight, tying her with Cloris Leachman for the most primetime Emmy wins by a performer.

"This is and continues to be the role of a lifetime and an adventure of utter, utter joy".

"I hope it will open up people's eyes to give women of color a seat at the table so they can tell their stories."

Last night SC natives Stephen Colbert and Aziz Ansari had a big presence at the Emmys, with Colbert hosting the 69th annual TV awards show, and Ansari (along with Lena Waithe) taking home Best Writing for a Comedy.

"The Handmaid's Tale" may have been, statistically-speaking, the big victor at the Emmys on Sunday (17 September) night, but elsewhere on the winners' list, Riz Ahmed and Lena Waithe led a host of stars making history with their accolades. (LGBTQIA stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and asexual.) "I see each and every one of you".

"I don't know what's happening right now".

"In this industry, that's something that happens slowly over time".
