The 32nd Annual Emmy Awards for News & Documentary took place at New York City’s Frederick P. Rose Hall on Monday night, and CBS walked away the biggest victor of the evening, with 10 wins. Larry King was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades-spanning career in broadcasting, including 25 years of Larry King Live. King was presented with the award by NBC anchor Brian Williams, who King cited alongside Dan Rather as one of his “two favorite people.” An emotional King told the audience, “I was lucky enough to be in a business where I really didn’t have to work. It was unbelievable to go in every night and meet people and ask them questions. It was a privilege.”

Here’s a list of some of the most notable winners (check out the complete list here), including Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, Lara Logan and the late Restrepo director Tim Hetherington:
