Comedian Sarah Silverman won in the Best Writing category for her HBO comedy special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles. Silverman thanked “my Jews at CAA,” referring to her talent agency, as she accepted her award barefoot on stage.

Actress Julianna Margulies won an Emmy for her role as Alicia Florrick on CBS‘s The Good Wife. The HBO movie The Normal Heart, based on the 1985 play by Jewish writer and AIDS activist Larry Kramer, won for Outstanding TV Movie.

Jewish comedian Billy Crystal gave a tribute during the awards to Robin Williams, who died earlier this month.
