Handmaid Tale

What an exciting night for TV!  It was Emmy’s 69th award show. Did your favorite win? Did you know it was on Sunday night? It celebrates the best shows and the actors who portray different memorable characters.

The top winners were “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu) was crowned best TV drama on Sunday at the Emmy Awards, it also won for writing and directing while earning Elisabeth Moss the best actress and Ann Dowd the best drama supporting actress award.

Saturday Night Live also won Emmys. Kate McKinnon played Hilary Clinton for Best supporting actress in a comedy. So, did Alec Baldwin for Best supporting actor in a comedy.

Baldwin spoke directly to Trump, who has complained in the past that he was cheated out of a trophy for hosting “Celebrity Apprentice”: “I suppose I should say, ‘At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy.'”

Melissa McCarthy was honored at last weekend’s creative arts Emmys as the best guest actress for her “SNL” work, including portraying Sean Spicer. The former White House press secretary made a surprise Emmys appearance, wheeling in his own podium.

Master of None’s Lena Waithe delivered an emphatic and empowering message to her “LGBTQIA family” after winning the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series with the show’s co-creator, Aziz Ansari.  The win notably made Waithe the first black woman to win the Emmy for Best Writing in a Comedy Series.

Donald Glover the first black person to win an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

HBO’s Big Little Lies, which ended up winning five awards in total over the course of the evening, including Outstanding Limited Series.

Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin reunite on stage to celebrate 37 years ago their film 9 to 5 and the TV series “Nine to five” 1982 – 1988. They compare their boss from the movie to be “a sexist, egotist, lying hypocritical bigot,” to President Trump.

Hollywood enough with the Trump Bashing, the reason why the Emmy rating was low, because celebrities keep bashing the president and it’s a turn-off, the TV audience will turn you off. Be professional actors and entertain us. This go for other awards shows too. Be professional accept your award and be grateful that you won. Let Alec Baldwin host the Emmy next time.

RuPaul makes a great Emmy while being interview by Stephen Colbert.

Oh, by the way, the creative arts award was on Saturday night, the night before the Emmys. They showcase the behind the scenes of TV shows and their creativity putting a show together, and they also won too.

They should do this to for the Oscars too, to showcase their creative side and be recognized for what they do or add more categories.
