Despite declining ratings, this year’s Emmy ceremony went off with nary a hitch, even affording some refreshing upsets in the usual pool of repeat winners. Jimmy Kimmel too did a perfectly serviceable job keeping things moving, but naturally made a few gaffes in production of that opening sketch, the blooper reel of which you can watch right now.
At this year’s Emmys the actress categories are undoubtedly the most contentious. From Taraji P. Henson to Viola Davis to Claire Danes, you couldn’t go with a wrong choice in the Outstanding Actress Drama category. But this year’s award went to an unexpected choice: Tatiana Maslany.
Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?
The 2016 Emmy Awards have some outstanding upsets, but there’s always bound to be a few repeats. Once again, Veep has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Comedy Series, beating out some impressive competition.
The 2016 Emmy Awards have already given some much deserved accolades and a few head-scratchers, but at least a few saw this one coming. After many years under the radar, Rami Malek has finally hacked his way into taking home the statue for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama.
Even a few Game of Thrones fans were left scratching their heads at “Battle of Bastards” winning a 2016 Emmy for Outstanding Writing, but the Outstanding Directing in a Drama win was right on the money. Miguel Sapochnick wins his first Emmy, as Game of Thrones takes home yet another gold at the 2016 Emmys!
The miniseries or movie category makes things tougher to sort out each year, but the Outstanding Lead Actress award at the 2016 Emmy Awards was definitely Sarah Paulson's to lose. So it is, that the People v. O.J. Simpson star took home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie award at the 2016 Emmy Awards.
2016 has been the year of reliving the O.J. Simpson murder trial in dramatic television, from The People v. O.J. to O.J.: Made in America. So of course Jimmy Kimmel kicked off the Emmy Awards with an O.J. spoof.
The 2016 Emmys have arrived at last, hosted by none other than Jimmy Kimmel himself, and the competition is refreshingly tense this year. Will The People v. O.J. Simpson blow FX counterpart Fargo out of the water? What about The Americans’ first big competition, or Mr. Robot’s chances? We’ll be updating all through tonight’s broadcast, so keep it here for every winner (and loser!) from the 2016 Emmy Awards!
It might surprise you to learn that Amy Poehler had never won an Emmy before last night, but less so that she’d make history doing it. Ahead of the full ceremony next Sunday, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey both took home Emmy awards for their SNL hosting, and made history in the process.
