In the reality-competition category, perennial winner “The Amazing Race” returned to triumph Sunday after losing last year to “Top Chef.” “American Idol” lost its ninth shot at winning, this time for a season in which it successfully navigated the loss of key judge Simon Cowell.

HBO had a leading 19 awards, including trophies given Sunday and at last week’s creative arts awards for technical and other achievements. PBS, which had a hit with “Downton Abbey,” earned 14 to shoulder past the commercial networks and come in second, ahead of CBS with 11, Fox with nine, ABC with eight and NBC with six.
