It’s A Wrap: Television Wins Emmys Race

990 0

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) The Emmy Awards, which celebrates television on television, have handed out their scores of awards. The winners are listed below.

If any of the literally tens of people who watched were hoping for plenty of awards, they were in luck. Those who love hearing the word “diversity” were probably even more delighted. The two men who do SNL’s “Weekend News Update” segment hosted the show and their opening monologue was dubbed “long, overly topical and awkward AF.”

Producer Lorne Michael asked speeches to be short and they were, and the show nearly wrapped on time. Michael was given an award for Variety Sketch Series for “Saturday Night Live,” beating out the hilarious “At Home With Amy Sedaris.”

If one finds this un-objective report a wee too snarky, don’t read Rob Sheffield’s take at Rolling Stone:

“’It is an honor to be here sharing this night with the many, many talented and creative people who haven’t been caught yet,”’co-host Michael Che announced at the beginning of the 70th Annual Emmy Awards. It set the tone for a toothless, flaccid, cramped and tedious night.

“Bumping it to a Monday night is just a polite way of saying ‘Yeah, we got nothing.’ … Jesus Christ Superstar Live might have turned John Legend into an EGOT winner, but not even he could raise this ceremony from the dead.”

“Atlanta,” nominated for 16 awards, won one. “Game Of Thrones,” nominated for 22, won two including Outstanding Drama Series.
