The 69th Annual Writers Guild Awards were handed out Sunday night in Los Angeles and New York City, and FX walked away with four of the most coveted trophies.

Donald Glover’s Atlanta was recognized as both TV’s Best Comedy and Best New Series, while The Americans took home the gold for Best Drama and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story won for Best Long-Form Adapted Series.

NBC’s This Is Us and Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt earned individual episode accolades. Fellow Netflix laugher BoJack Horseman took home the animation trophy, an award that had previously only been won by cartoons originating on Fox since the category’s inception in 2002.
