Hip-Hop Evolution and Exodus: Our Journey to Europe were among the winners at the 45th annual International Emmy Awards, which took place in New York last night (Nov. 20).

Eleven Emmy statues were presented by the International Academy during the evening, while Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav presented the International Emmy Directorate Award to Emilio Azcárraga Jean, CEO of Grupo Televisa, the world’s largest Spanish-language content provider and Mexico’s largest broadcaster and pay television provider.

Hip-Hop Evolution took home the statue for best arts programming. The four-part production from Banger Films traces the evolution of hip-hop from the 1970s through the 1990s.
