We love TV — it’s in our bones. So we especially love when Hollywood and the TV industry take time to celebrate the best of the best of the best at the yearly Academy Awards (this year hosted by Stephen Colbert), and when the voters of those awards get so, so many categories right.

Any couch-surfer could have told you the night would belong to big shows like Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale following their epic seasons, and they were right, but all-around it was a pretty big event for women and people of colour. For the first time we can ever remember in Emmys history, presenters doled out more awards to people from those categories than white dudes… and then recognized that fact.

This morning, we’re here to celebrate some of the amazing women who were honoured at the festivities for the impact they’ve made on the medium. So in no particular order, here are our 15 picks of women who totally won last night’s show… and subsequently the (TV) world.
