The HBO psychotherapy drama series "In Treatment," based on the Israeli series "B'tipul," took home two Emmy awards in the 60th annual event late Sunday.

On a night when cable television actors dominated the marathon trophy chase, Dianne Wiest won the award for best supporting actress in a drama series, and Glynn Turman scored the show a second Emmy in the category of guest actor in a drama series.

"B'tipul," which follows a psychoanalyst through his week, capturing a session each night with his patients, was created by Hagai Levi, who is one of the executive producers of "In Treatment."

It was the second Emmy for Wiest, 60, a two-time Oscar winner for her work in the Woody Allen films "Hannah and Her Sisters" and "Bullets over Broadway."

"In Treatment" stars Gabriel Byrne as the therapist, a role by actor Assi Dayan in the Israeli series .
