'Saturday Night Live' leads the pack, while HBO retains its perch at the top.

NBC's politically themed Saturday Night Live season scored big Sunday night at the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. 

The series took home wins for variety sketch series (its third overall in the category), supporting actor for Alec Baldwin for his role as President Donald Trump and supporting actress for Kate McKinnon, who portrayed Hillary Clinton, among others, in season 43 of the Lorne Michaels-created show. 

HBO miniseries Big Little Lies tied for second with Hulu breakout The Handmaid's Tale, with the former scoring wins for best limited series as well as for stars Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard. 

Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's best-selling novel The Handmaid's Tale, meanwhile, earned the night's biggest honor — best drama — as well as awards for leading lady Elisabeth Moss, supporting actress Ann Dowd, writer Bruce Miller and director Reed Morano. Hulu became the first streaming outlet to win the top drama prize, besting big-spending competitors Netflix and Amazon.

On the network side, HBO retained its place at the top of the pack with 29 wins — including best comedy honors for Veep and star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Riz Ahmed on The Night Of and John Oliver's Last Week Tonight.

Netflix finished second with 20, with nods for The Crown's John Lithgow and Black Mirror, among others.

NBC finished third with 15, thanks to SNL's yuuuge year as well as This Is Us, with the latter's Sterling K. Brown. taking home the statuette for lead actor.
