Emmy’s and all Their Glory
Last night was the 70th Annual Emmy Awards. They were hosted by Colin Jost andMichael Che from Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update. The show went over their allotted 3 hours which begs the obvious question to all the people running these shows- how do you always go over? Seriously?
Anyway here is a quick recap:
First the fashion find the professional breakdown HERE. My favorites have to be:
But again I was wearing sweat pants and stealing my kid’s candy last night. So what the hell do I know.
The Opening Monologue was just ok. That’s right. Just ok. Kind of boring had a moment or two. BUT they moved onto a musical number that took a dig at Hollywood for talking the big talk of being “diverse” but really just improving by just a little bit. It was pretty hilarious and had some great surprise guests. Catch that HERE.
Henry Winkler won Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for his role on Barry (HBO). His speech was everything you would want from a mature Fonz. Check it out HERE.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel almost completely swept the Comedy portion of the evening taking home the awards for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress,Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series.
The creator/writer/producer Amy Sherman-Palladino is absolutely brilliant (also created Gilmore Girls) and her speeches and general presence last night was just a gift. Fast forward the next clip to about 1:45 and absorb her spectacular weirdness (love her) Catch it HERE.
I don’t want to say I told you so- BUT if you have not watched this show what else do you need to know?! I told you this month’s ago, but I get it. I’m just an opinionated mom of three with too much time on my hands. Now we have an entire Academy handing out awards saying this show is a MUST. Go to Amazon and do yourself a favor.
Chrissy Teigen managed to make a Meme out of herself again by ducking the camera in the most hilarious way.
Betty White was honored for being well, the greatest. The room gave her a standing ovation, and Penelope Cruz was just not having it. I caught it on my Instagram Story if you want to check it out HERE.
Another big winner of the night was American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. With Darren Cris taking home Best Actor in a Limited Series, Ryan Murphy winning for Best Director in a Limited Series, and winning Outstanding Limited Series.
Other notable winners:
Best Leading Actor in a Comedy Bill Hader (Barry- HBO)
Best Leading Actor in a Drama- Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones- HBO)
Best Drama Series- Game of Thrones (OBVIOUSLY)
Finally my biggest complaint: Best Actress in a Drama Series. How do I say this delicately- What the FORK?!?! I loved The Crown, Season 2. I thought Claire Foy was just lovely. However Elizabeth Moss and Sandra Oh were absolutely positively robbed. GET THE FORK OUT OF HERE if you want to tell me that Claire Foy portraying a young Queen Elizabeth comes close to the absolute swan dive into darkness June took us all on this season. Not even Claire Foy herself could believe she won. Ok, small rant over. I am still trying to heal from this devastating loss.
I finally leave you with the sweetest yet strangest proposal I have ever seen that did actually happen live. Watch that HERE
