Highlights From the Most-Talked About Women at the 2015 Emmy Awards

The 67th Emmy Awards were full of memorable moments, like Viola Davis to becoming the first African-American actress to win the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

It was also great to see some women behind the scenes be recognized for their work like Lisa Cholodenko, winner of Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, and Jane Anderson, winner of Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series.

And of course, the actresses who were celebrated on Sunday evening gave inspiring, emotional and even humorous acceptance speeches. 

Take a look back at some of the best quotes and highlights from the Emmy award-winning actresses in the gallery above.
