The awards show was SUPER eventful, and so many well-deserving actors have become first-time Emmy winners tonight, like Ayo Edebiri for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Quinta Brunson for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Steven Yeun for Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, and Jeremy Allen White for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

Even more delightful moments from the night came from the TV show cast reunions, from iconic shows like Grey's Anatomy, Ally McBeal, and more.
