Sherman-Palladino was up against stiff competition in both categories, including last year's victor in the directing category, "Atlanta's" Donald Glover. Elisabeth Moss lost lead drama actress to "The Crown's" Claire Foy, while Joseph Fiennes was nominated for supporting actor but lost to "Game of Thrones'" Peter Dinklage.

Listen, if all the shows that people thought should win awards for being great actually won, we wouldn't even need awards shows, we'd just hand out trophies to everyone.

Others in the best drama race include FX spy thriller "The Americans", HBO's futuristic western "Westworld", Netflix favorites "The Crown" and retro sci-fi mystery "Stranger Things", and NBC family saga "This is Us".

More than 40 years on from his first nomination, this was his first win.
