Emmy StatuetteEmmys

Stephen Colbert hosted the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday September 17th. The Handmaid’s TaleBig Little Lies, Atlanta, SNL, and Veep were the big winners of the night. But they weren’t the only winners as history was made when Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lena Waithe, and Sterling K. Brown took the stage to accept their awards.  Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth consecutive Emmy for Veep, Waithe became the first African-American woman to win a writing Emmy, and Brown is the first African-American to win the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series since 1998. The night had its fair share of political commentary from Colbert’s opening monologue making several shots at Trump which included a surprise appearance from Sean Spicer to just about every acceptance speech mentioning something about the President or the state our country is in. At least we have hundreds of hours of good television to distract us, even if for a little while. Check out the list of winners below!!
