Amazon’s Transparent celebrated marquee wins at last night’s Emmy Awards, with Jeffrey Tambor nabbing his second consecutive Emmy for best actor in a comedy series and Jill Soloway taking best directing in a comedy series for the episode, “Man on the Land.”
Netflix, however, dominated in terms of overall awards among streaming services. Ben Mendelsohn won best supporting actor in a drama series for Bloodlines. Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang won best writing for a comedy series for an episode of Master of None called “Parents.” Comedian Patton Oswalt won for best writing for a variety special with Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping.
Adding to its haul, Netflix’s Making a Murderer grabbed two Emmys; one for writing for a nonfiction program; another for best documentary or nonfiction series. What Happened, Miss Simone also won for documentary or nonfiction special, Cartel Land for sound editing for a nonfiction program as well as exceptional merit for documentary filmmaking, and Marvel’s Jessica Jones for original title theme music.
Amazon did also claim a sound mixing award for Mozart in the Jungle and cinematography for The Man in the High Castle.
Outside of the two big streamers, only one other entrant won – AOL’s Park Bench with Steve Buscemi for short form variety series.
