Viola Davis makes history, Jon Hamm finally leaves the Emmys with a trophy, and "powerful funny women" rule the world — yes, that certainly sounds like television's biggest night.

The 2015 Primetime Emmys did not disappoint, and neither did first-time host Andy Samberg. While "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "Transparent," "Veep," and "Olive Kitteridge" were the big winners of the night, it was HBO's "Game of Thrones" which earned a record-breaking 12 statues, the most victories for a series in a single year.
