Hosted by comedian Loni Love, Queer Eye topped this list with four wins, taking home awards for Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted SeriesLifestyle Show: Fashion/Beauty,Male Star of The Year for Jonathan Van Ness, and Structured Series.

The Late Late Show with James Corden also took home multiple awards, for both Late-Night Talk Show (a tie with “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”) and Show Host for James Corden. Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” won the Short Form Series category, sending the Brit home with three awards total.  The Relationship Show category also resulted in a tie between “Dating Around” and “Married at First Sight.”
