The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television programming from June 1, 2014 until May 31, 2015, as chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The ceremony was held on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and was broadcast in the U.S. by Fox. Andy Samberg hosted the show for the first time. The nominations were announced on July 16, 2015.
The ceremony became notable for breaking two major milestones: Game of Thrones set a new record by winning 12 awards, the most for any show in a single year (it was also the second HBO show to win the Outstanding Drama Series award), while Viola Davis became the first African-American woman in Emmy history to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her performance as Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder.
This year also saw for the first time, two Streaming service networks win four Acting awards: Netflix, with Uzo Aduba in Orange Is the New Black and Reg E. Cathey in House of Cards; and Amazon Studios, with Jeffrey Tambor for Transparent and Bradley Whitford for the same show.
The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series went to the HBO political satire Veep, which not only broke Modern Family's five-year hold on the award but became the second time a premium channel won Outstanding Comedy Series (the first was for HBO's surrealist romantic comedy Sex and the City in 2001).
