In Hollywood, our forum posters are respected and feared in equal measures for their strongly worded opinions. They did not hold back when watching the Emmy Awards, which sparked strong responses in our forums — everything from “wow, they actually got it right this year” to “ho-hum” to “What were they thinking.”
Below, just a small taste of the delicious dish they served up over the three plus hours of the ceremony. Read more and have your say here.

BamaEd: I thought she was magnificient on this show!! WooHoo!!

DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Uzo Aduba, “Orange is the New Black”)
24Emmy: Very emotional acceptance speech by Uzo Aduba. Those are always good.

COMEDY SERIES (“Veep”)
Pieman1994: Well, at least isn’t “Modern Family,” which is a HUGE improvement.
COMEDY ACTOR (Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent”)
Halo_Insider: Tambor finally wins!!!!!!
COMEDY ACTRESS (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep”)
The Cheshire Cat: At this point Julia Louis-Dreyfus winning an Emmy is a part of the natural order like the sun rising in the morning.
COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR (Tony Hale, “Veep”)
Jw79bull: Tituss was robbed

COMEDY DIRECTING (Jill Soloway, “Transparent”)
AMG: “Transparent” v “Veep” is ON!!
MOVIE/MINI ACTOR (Richard Jenkins, “Olive Kitteridge”)
24Emmy: Nice. I didn’t predict him, but Richard Jenkins deserves this Emmy.
MOVIE/MINI ACTRESS (Frances McDormand, “Olive Kitteridge”)
BamaEd: Frances McDormand is now 3/4 of the way to an EGOT. I love how she always sounds like she just doesn’t give a rip. You go Frances!
PoweR: Frances was like “Oh, forget the boring long speech. Let me take my Emmy and go!”
MOVIE/MINI SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Regina King, “American Crime”)
Marcus Snowden: Damn. Regina King. REALLY didn’t expect that. What does Sarah Paulson have to do to win an Emmy? I mean, seriously?

GoMe91: I am bawling! Go Amy!!
