It was a big night for Chernobyl at Sunday’s 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

The acclaimed HBO show took home the win for outstanding limited series, triumphing over Showtime’s Escape at Dannemora, FX’s Fosse/Verdon, HBO’s Sharp Objects and Netflix’s When They See Us.

Chernobyl came into the night with the most nominations of the bunch, at 19. The series explores the aftermath and problem-solving of the world’s biggest nuclear disaster, when the nuclear power plant in the Soviet state of Ukraine exploded during system testing on April 26, 1986 — killing an estimated 4,000 to 90,000 victims and leaving areas of Eastern Europe heavily effected by radiation to this day.
