EMMYs 2015 – The Winners

EMMY logoWe have survived the 67th Emmy Awards.

Now Emmy, as a show, is not particularly well laid out and reminds me of a dentist visit. You wait too long to get the pain.

Instead of waiting to see the nominees gather together and finally get to the stage from their seat like the Price is Right, maybe if we redesign it to have the actors whose category is approaching back stage or on the center stage together.

This years host, or guide through the journey to the center of television self adoration, was Andy Samberg. My mother often said if you can’t say something nice come sit next to me. Oh! Andy.

Well you tried. Now, I like Andy and his boyish charm. He seemed a bit miscast. Great for a small skit segment, but he wasn’t addictive like his song Dick in A Box from SNL. You didn’t crave more, but watched with a sense of get on with it. Stop messing around, I don’t have all night.

It was the night of Olive Kitteridge. Now I was surprised Mad Men did not take home the final prize, but at least Emmy paid for the Hamm.

It was good to see Jon Stewart again even if he said to the audience, “You Will Never Have to See Me Again”.

I feel like Jon’s cup is so filled with humanity’s worst attributes, he needs to empty it for a few years and allow him to recharge. He is and was completely uncomfortable with the adoration the room felt for him and Jon would have rather been at Trump Tower than at the Emmy’s.

In typical Jon Stewart style, he wanted this to be a team win for his colleges from the Daily Show. Not to be disappointed, this was a good night as the Daily Show took home Best Talk Show.

For me the big highlight was Viola Davis. I love me some Viola. “You cant win Emmy’s if you’re not offered the roles”. Amen sister.

“Game of Thrones” and “Veep” named outstanding drama and comedy series at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The night was very good for HBO’s  Olive Kitteridge as well with 6 Emmys

The Emmy Awards honor the best in television.

Hosted by Andy Samberg, this year’s Emmys took place Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

“Game Of Thrones” was expected to walk away with several Emmys since it’s the most nominated show this year. The HBO series was up for 24 Emmy Awards.

Jeffrey Tambor,  Lead Actor, Comedy, (Transparent) thanked the transgender community for their courage and dedicated the Emmy award to them.

Viola Davis  became the first black woman to win the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama Series.  She thanked the black women who have broken boundaries before her during her Emmy acceptance speech for the coveted award.

 Tracy Morgan surprised the audience by walking on stage, un-aided, to announce the EMMY for Outstanding Drama.

Morgan was critically injured in a car crash in June 2014, and has been in recovery since.

“I miss you guys so much,” he addressed the audience, who rose for a standing ovation once Morgan boarded the stage. “Last year, Jimmy Kimmel stood on this stage and said, ‘We’ll see you back here next year, Tracy Morgan.’ Well, Jimmy, thanks to my amazing doctors and the support of my family and my beautiful new wife, I’m here.”
