Queen of the South won big at the 32nd annual Imagen Awards last week.

The drama won best prime-time television series. And Peter Gadiot won best supporting actor for his role as James, everyone's favorite brooding henchman to fan favorite Veronica Falcon's Camila Vargas.

Queen of the South follows the phoenix-like rise of Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) in the drug world. The show is mostly filmed around Dallas and at South Side Studios on Lamar Street.

Justina Machado accepts the award for best TV actress for "One Day at a Time" at the 32nd annual Imagen Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Aug. 18, 2017, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

But it was Justina Machado, who played beleaguered best friend Brenda on Queen of the South, who may have been the biggest winner of all. 

Not only did she get to share in the QOTS victory, Machado won best TV actress for her role in One Day at a Time. The Netflix re-imagining of the Norman Lear show took home awards for best TV comedy; best young TV actor Marcel Ruiz; and best TV supporting actress Isabella Gomez.

Lear co-founded the Imagen Awards with Helen Hernandez to honor Latino achievement on screen. Lin-Manuel Miranda and his family and Rita Moreno were among the special honorees. A complete list of nominees and winners can be found on the awards website, imagen.org.

Queen of the South airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on USA Network.
