The 67th Emmy Awards, honoring excellence in television, are presented Sept. 20 in Los Angeles, CA. Uzo Aduba, Viola Davis and Allison Janney made Emmy history. Here's a look at the winners.

"Saturday Night Live" vet Andy Samberg hosts the ceremony that is broadcast live on Fox-TV.

A host of stage actors are among the nominees. Allison Janney's win for "Mom" earned the actress her seventh Emmy Award, tying with veteran actor Ed Asner for second-most performance wins. (Cloris Leachman still holds the record, with eight, plus one Daytime Emmy). In addition, Broadway actress Uzo Aduba (Godspell) took home her second Emmy (it was also her second nomination). She also shares a record with veteran actor Asner. The two earned Emmys for playing the same role in both comedic and dramatic acting categories – Aduba for Crazy Eyes on "Orange Is the New Black" and Asner for Lou Grant on "Mary Tyler Moore" and a spin-off that continued with the character, "Lou Grant."

Tony winner and two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis took home her first Emmy for "How to Get Away With Murder."
