The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Limited Series represents excellence in the category of limited series that are two or more episodes with a total running time of at least 150 minutes.

He went on to reflect on how "history is mystery", a recurrent theme throughout the series.

He said: "History is mystery, it's broken into a million puzzle pieces and many are missing.

"We know where those pieces are but we don't seek them out because we know finding them will hurt. Sometimes we cause that hurt. Maybe we even benefited from it. But we have to name it before we can repair it.

"Be careful, be clumsy, run hot, stay cool, Be the bull in the China shop. Pick up what you broke and glue it back together. Don't stop until it's great. Affirm it's never great enough. Dissent. Be consistent, embrace paradox. Never contradict yourself.

"And finally, stop worrying about getting cancelled and ask yourself what you're doing to get renewed."

He ended his speech by dedicating the win to the victims and survivors of the 1921 tragedy.
