Coco” won the animated feature film prize, while Oscar-omitted “Jane” took the documentary feature award. Netflix’s “Five Came Back” won in the non-theatrical documentary category.

On the television side, ABC’s “Black-ish” and HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” won in the comedy fields, while drama honors went to FX’s “Fargo” and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” NatGeo’s “Genius” won for miniseries/TV motion picture, and “VICE News Tonight” took the non-scripted series gong.
