Emmy Winners 2017: ‘Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘Big Little Lies’, and ‘Atlanta’ Lead the Pack

The 2017 Emmy Awards have arrived, and with them, another year of worthy (for the most part) nominees from the very best of Peak TV. The Emmys have always been one of the more difficult awards shows to predict (though TV Editor Allison Keene gave it a shot), and this year was unlikely to be different, especially with so many new shows represented. While Game of Thrones was ineligible, HBO did fine thanks to the smash hit limited series Big Little Lies, which won multiple awards including Nicole Kidman and director Jean-Marc Vallee. And Hulu had a great night with The Handmaid’s Tale taking home Best Drama Series and Best Actress in a Drama Series for Elisabeth Moss.

Without further ado, the full list of winners are below, highlighted in red. (Of Note: Some of the awards were already given out during the Creative Arts Emmys, including the Outstanding Guest Actor nods):
