BEST: 'Transparent' Wins Best Comedy and Actor

Jill Soloway's brilliant series about a a trans woman struggling to live her gender publicly for the first time is important, yes, but all the more so because the writer-director has managed to avoid all the dutiful earnestness you'd expect given its subject. In Soloway's clever and capable hands, Maura Pfefferman (played by Jeffrey Tambor) turns out to have a stronger grasp on her identity than the rest of her messy, mixed-up family.

It was arguably the biggest victory of the night.
