“It was a great sadness to end the show, but it was a great pleasure to do it,” creator Jesse Armstrong said.

Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen won acting trophies for their roles as part of the wealthy but miserable Roy family.

“The Bear,” the story of a fine-dining chef trying to turn around his family’s Chicago sandwich shop, also landed six awards, including best comedy series.

Star Jeremy Allen White was named best actor in a comedy, and his co-stars Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach won supporting actress and actor, for the first season of the FX DIS.N network show.

“I am so proud, so full of gratitude, to be standing in front of you all,” said White, who plays chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto. “I love the show so much.”

Road rage drama “Beef” won best limited series, one of its five awards for the night. Stars Steven Yeun and Ali Wong claimed acting trophies.

The top TV honors were broadcast live on the Fox FOXA.O broadcast network. The show was postponed from September because of Hollywood labor disputes last year.

Several Black actors won awards at the ceremony, which coincided with the U.S. holiday commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

“Everyone having fun at the chocolate Emmys tonight? We are killing it tonight!” said host and former “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson.
