Tonight, the 74th annual ceremony took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. During the awards show, the cast of The White Lotus took home the statuette for Outstanding Limited Series.

The Outstanding Limited Series category represents non-traditional TV shows. In order to qualify, a series must have two or more episodes and have a total running time of at least 150 minutes.

The category originally made its debut in 1973, but it was called Outstanding Drama/Comedy, Limited Episodes. After undergoing a few name changes—like Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding TV Movie and Outstanding Drama/Comedy Special—the title was officially changed to Outstanding Limited Series in 2015.

Previous winners include The Queen's Gambit, Watchmen, Chernobyl, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Big Little Lies (season one), The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Olive Kitteridge and Fargo (season one).

Talk about a well-deserved honor.
