The 2016 list of Emmy winners featured an assortment of first-time winners in its 68th annual Emmy Awards.

“Black-ish” stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross set the tone, handing out the first award of the night, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, to “Baskets” star Louie Anderson, who plays a woman on the FX series, CBS News noted.

“I have not always been a very good man, but I play one hell of a woman,” Anderson said from the stage.

Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang took home an Emmy as the winners of Best Comedy Series Writing for the Netflix series “Master of None,” which was just one of several upsets from the night.

“Asian parents out there, just a couple of you get your kids cameras instead of violins and we’ll be all good,” Yang said, encouraging diversity in TV and filmmaking.

Kate McKinnon, a regular on “Saturday Night Live” took home Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series, which is the first time that’s been done in the show’s history.

The awards wasn’t all about the first-timers though as some of the veterans in the industry added to their already proven resumes.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus won Best Actress in a Comedy Series for “Veep,” which was her fifth straight win in the category, CBS News noted.

She also had one of the more memorable speeches of the night as she capped it off by dedicating her award to her father, who passed away earlier this week.

“I would like to take this opportunity to personally apologize for the current political climate, Louis-Dreyfus said during her speech. “‘Veep’ has torn down the wall between comedy and politics.”

One of the most popular awards of the night, Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special, which was presented by a very pregnant Kerry Washington, went to “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” the first win of the night for the celebrated FX series, CBS News noted.

And the Emmy’s wouldn't be the Emmy’s if it wasn’t hosted by one of the more colorful personalities in entertainment: Jimmy Kimmel, who didn’t fail to deliver great funny moments as usual.

Kimmel took a break during the awards and had the kids from “Stranger Things” hand out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — made by his mom — to attendees, adding some dry humor as he warned attendees that the producers were only able to afford one EpiPen in the event that someone with peanut allergies was to eat the sandwiches.
