Sarah Paulson, Kate McKinnon and Jill Soloway were among the out artists who won Emmys at Sunday's annual awards.

Jeffrey Tambor won his second Emmy in a row for playing Maura Pfefferman, who comes out transgender to her adult children, in Amazon's Transparent.

In accepting his award, Tambor called on Hollywood to hire more transgender actors.

“Please give transgender talent a chance,” he said. “Give them auditions. Give them their stories.”

“I would not be unhappy were I the last cisgender male to play a transgender female on TV,” he added, a reference to the recent controversy surrounding the casting of Matt Bomer as a transgender sex worker in the upcoming film Anything. “We have work to do.”

Transparent creator Jill Soloway won a directing Emmy. “I've always wanted to be part of a movement. This TV show allows me to take my dreams about unlikable Jewish people, queer folk, trans folk, and make them heroes. Thank you to the trans community for your lived lives,” she said in accepting her award.

Kate McKinnon's acting win got the attention of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whom McKinnon has played in various Saturday Night Live skits.

“Congratulations on your Emmy, Kate! Big fan of yours, too,” Clinton tweeted, though it was uncertain whether Clinton herself wrote the message since it did not end with her signature H.

Sarah Paulson received acting nominations for her work on The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and American Horror Story: Hotel, and won her first Emmy for her portrayal of prosecutor Marcia Clark in the The People v. O.J. Simpson.
