Who Took Home An Emmy?

Author: Jason the 200 lb. Cowboy

The Emmys were last night and with Stephen Colbert as host, you knew it was going to be political. While Colbert, and plenty of award winners, got their jabs in at POTUS, the ultimate surprise of the evening was Sean Spicer making a cameo and poking fun at his comments about the size of Trump’s inauguration audience. Melissa McCarthy, who had already won a Creative Arts Emmy for her portrayal of Spicer on “Saturday Night Live,” spoke for most of America and almost all of Twitter, when she looked confused and not thrilled that Spicer was there.

The Emmys also tried to spice things up this year with a new announcer, Jermaine Fowler from “Superior Donuts,” and a group of paparazzi on stage taking pictures of winners as they walked off stage.

When it came to those winners, the night was dominated by “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Veep.” There were also plenty of historic moments. Lena Waithe, who wrote alongside Aziz Ansari on “Master of None,” is now the first African-American woman to win for comedy writing. Donald Glover‘s win for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his show “Atlanta” makes him the first black star to win in that category. “The Night Of” star Riz Ahmed is officially the first male actor of Asian descent to win an Emmy award for acting. Meanwhile Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive best actress Emmy for “Veep,” breaking the record for wins for by a performer for the same role.
