Veep” has once again won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, beating out six other nominees in the process. It marks the political satire’s third consecutive win, much to the chagrin of “Atlanta” (which was considered a potential spoiler by IndieWire’s Ben Travers), “Black-ish,” “Master of None,” “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Other winners in the comedy category include Glover (Directing, “Atlanta”), Alec Baldwin (Supporting Actor, “Saturday Night Live”), and Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe (Writing, “Master of None”). Julia-Louis Dreyfus also won for her lead performance on the show, her sixth in a row.

Stephen Colbert hosted this year’s ceremony, the 69th, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Avail yourself of the full list of winners here.
