The 70th annual Emmy Awards aired live from Los Angeles Monday, and it was a big night for the streaming giants.

Netflix won multiple acting categories for shows including “The Crown,” “Godless,” and (already canceled) “Seven Seconds.” HBO won the same amount of total Emmys as Netflix, thanks to some major wins for “Game of Thrones” and “Barry.”

While Amazon didn’t win as many awards in comparison, “The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel” swept several categories, including best actress and best supporting actress in a comedy, best comedy, and a historic double win for Amy Sherman-Palladino, who won for writing and directing the series.

Representing the ad-supported networks, FX snagged two surprising and deserved wins for “The Americans” and multiple for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” including best actor in a limited series and best limited series. It came pretty close to Netflix and HBO in the tally for Emmy wins during the telecast.

During the Primetime telecast, Netflix won 7 Emmys, HBO won 6, Amazon won 5, and FX won 5. But including the Creative Arts Emmys, which happen a week before the Primetime ceremony, HBO and Netflix tied with 23 Emmys, while Amazon won 8. FX won 12 in total.
