Fallon was named Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, thanks to his appearance on "Saturday Night Live". "Fallon was unable to be here tonight, cause he was arrested," presenter Joel McHale joked. "But we are happy to accept this award and will keep it forever. Haha."
Lynch, who previously won an Emmy for "Glee", this year took home Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for her debut as a host on reality series "Hollywood Game Night". She thanked the producer, "Sean Hayes, thank you for taking your crazy party and pitching it to NBC - thank you NBC for taking the bait. I hope we'll do more. I'm tickled pink, actually."

The fifth win was for Outstanding Hairstyling, thanks to the episode where Anna Kendrick was the emcee. Following "SNL" with four prizes each were Seth MacFarlane's "Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey", "True Detective", "Game of Thrones", and "Sherlock: His Last Vow".
