PBS once again came out the big winner at the 2017 News & Documentary Emmy Awards last night with 12 awards overall.

CBS’s 60 Minutes was the most-honored news show with 7 Emmys, giving CBS a total of 9. Lara Logan‘s story Battle for Mosul won two awards. Other 60 Minutes stories honored include The White Helmets, Little Jazz Man and The Music of Zomba Prison.

ABC News and HBO each won 5 awards. Two Nightline stories won Emmys, and the network also was honored with outstanding breaking news coverage for the nightclub massacre in Orlando.

“While it’s an honor to be recognized by one’s peers, and we thank you for this honor, I think I speak for everyone in this room when I say I hope that no one is standing up here next year accepting another award for another massacre,” said ABC News special events senior ep Marc Burstein. WATCH:
