Samberg did an amazing job keeping the show moving without dragging on, which is a concern especially for the Emmy’s, which must get through many more categories than the Oscars. The winners’ helped keep the energy alive as well, with many recipients delivering some powerfully emotional speeches.
HBO swept with Veep and Game of Thrones racking up awards. Veep won the Emmy for best comedy series, as well as lead actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus winning the Emmy for best comedy actress and actor Tony Hale bringing in the award for best supporting actor in a comedy series.

HBO’s Game of Thrones won the Emmy for outstanding drama series, outstanding directing, outstanding writing, and Peter Dinklage took home the award for best supporting actor. This came as a bit of a surprise for most, as AMC’s Mad Men has been known to take these categories in the past.
Speaking of Mad Men, actor Jon Hamm won the series’ only Emmy for performance, taking home the statue for best actor in a drama series. In his speech, Hamm was flustered and genuinely surprised saying that “this is impossible”, but we all know that Don Draper deserved that one. Way to go, bud.
It was also a huge night for actress Viola Davis, who won best actress for her work on How to Get Away with Murder, and became the first African-American actress to receive this Emmy.
Sketch-comedy shows were honored at the Emmy’s for the first time, with Amy Schumer winning the category for her work on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.
The night concluded with Tracy Morgan taking the stage, having recovered from a tragic accident in which he was hit by a truck and put into a coma. The tear-inducing speech was truly remarkable, and an emotional way to end the show.
All in all, this year’s Emmy awards show contained some surprises, a handful of hysterical interludes via Andy Samberg, and some truly touching speeches. There are a few people I would’ve liked to see win that didn’t (Jonathan Banks, Keegan-Michael Key), but overall I think these nominees and winners are solid. Is there anyone you would’ve liked to see win this year, or is your attitude towards the Emmy’s Amy Poehler?
