Girls creator and star Lena Dunham also took the 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (Comedy)' prize at the January 13 ceremony.
The programme's renewal was announced just two episodes into Girls' second season, which has been a ratings hit for HBO in addition to earning rave critical reviews.
Dunham serves not only as the sitcom's leading actress, but she is also an executive producer along with Judd Apatow, Jennifer Konner and Ilene S Landress. Paul Simms will also be a co-executive producer for Girls' new episodes, replacing the outgoing Bruce Eric Kaplan.
The series is expected to shoot its third season at Silvercup Studios on stages previously used by Tina Fey's sitcom 30 Rock.
Girls has attracted considerable attention in the press in its first two seasons for its frank portrayal of the sex lives of a group New York City women in their mid-20s.
HBO airs Girls on Sundays at 9pm. In the UK, the show airs on Sky Atlantic on Mondays at 10pm.
