Emmy Awards 2017
I love a good awards show! This year I was excited for the Emmy's due to so many well-deserved nominations. Also, the fashion was ON POINT this year!! I don't know what happened, but everyone got a memo saying step their game up. Here are a ton of my favorites:
Again, most of our favorite shows and actors were nominated this year, so the opportunities for major snubs were few. For our favorite winners:
- Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us
- Best Directing in a Comedy Series: Donald Glover, Atlanta (*Making him the first Black Director to win an Emmy for comedy!)
- Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Donald Glover, Atlanta
- Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series: Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe, Master of None (*Making her the first Black woman to win a Emmy for comedic writing!)
- Outstanding Writing For a Drama Series: Bruce Miller, The Handmaid's Tale
- Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Ann Dowd, The Handmaid's Tale
- Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series: Reed Morano, The Handmaid's Tale
- Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid's Tale
- Outstanding Drama Series: The Handmaid's Tale (*See a pattern here...)
- Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie: Riz Ahmed, The Night Of (*Making him the first Asian man to win an Emmy for acting)
I'm just glowing after all these amazing wins! Between this and the Creative Arts Emmys winners, it shows what an incredible time it is for television. Network television is going to have to step it up! Premium channels (FX, HBO) and streaming services (Netflix, Hulu) won the night!
