Andy Samberg hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Regina King took home the Emmy for supporting actress in a limited series or movie for her performance in American Crime at Sunday night's ceremony.

Empire's Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson presented the award to King. "I was not expecting this," she said giving gratitude to God. She thanked her team, her sister, her son (who was "the best date in the house") and her mother and grandmother "who have taught me the power and the blessing of being a woman." Donning a floor-length white gown, she also thanked her American Crime cast.

King beat out Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Mo'Nique (Bessie) and Zoe Kazan (Olive Kitteridge) to win the award.

The 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday.
