They made us laugh, and they made us cry … with more laughter. The winners of the Primetime Emmy Award For Outstanding Comedy have tickled our fancies, cracked us up, brought the house down, and had us texting 😂😂😂..

This supercut zooms through every single Best Comedy Emmy winner since the groundbreaking ‘50s era of The Red Skelton Show and I Love Lucy to the genre-expanding ‘70s sitcoms All in the Family and M*A*S*H to the golden era of urban tales like Seinfeld and Friends.

Above, check out our supercut of every Outstanding Comedy Primetime Emmy winner of the last six decades.

Meanwhile, over six decades, television dramas have moved us, inspired us, tugged at our heartstrings, welcomed us into families, and introduced us to strange new worlds. The winners of the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Drama have shown audiences, time and time again, the glories and tragedies of the human condition.

This supercut traces the history of the award winners, from 1951’s Pulitzer Prize Playhouse to last year’s Game of Thrones. In between, we’ve followed the adventures and travails of police officers, lawyers, doctors, spies, mobsters, advertising executives, drug lords, and even the President of the United States. Above, check out a supercut of all of the Outstanding Drama winners. Two footnotes first: In 1965, the Emmys did not hand out a Drama award, and there were two drama winners each year in 1958 and 1959.

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ABC.
