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.
DRAMA SERIES (“Game of Thrones”)
Lord Freddy Blackfyre: Cannot be anything else!
DRAMA ACTOR (Rami Malek, “Mr. Robot”)
moviefan61794: F*** yes
DRAMA ACTRESS (Tatiana Maslany, “Orphan Black”)
Icky: Why did I know that was coming? This is the first win I’m thankful for the new system.
DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR (Ben Mendelsohn, “Bloodline”)
Andrew Eng: This has to be an award for last year, because this year he did nothing.
leothescorpio: Whoooo. The internet is shook. We did not see that one coming.
DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey”)
13SV8: Worst win of the night.
Mihael Crncec: Well, it indeed was Maggie. I’m not sad.
DRAMA WRITING (David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, “Game of Thrones”)
Alienware: “Game of Thrones” is definitely sweeping tonight. Writing was their weakest.
COMEDY SERIES (“Veep”)
cnmem10: Ended right. Good for “Veep!“ Best comedy on TV.
COMEDY ACTOR (Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent”)
FrozenBarbie: I don‘t understand people wishing someone would lose, because they are “tired“ of them winning. If they deserve it, they deserve it. End of story. Suck it up.
COMEDY ACTRESS (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep”)
AMG: Julia Louis Dreyfus just made me laugh my head off then break my heart within ten seconds.
jacob121: There‘s something in my eye …definitely not openly weeping.
COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR (Louie Anderson, “Baskets”)
claydavis: There goes my predictions. But it‘s so awesome.
M: I predicted he‘d do it. He‘s a vet overdue for this kind of recognition.
COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Kate McKinnon, “Saturday Night Live”)
AMG: F***! Why did I switch McKinnon out for Janney!?
cnmem10: Judith was ROBBED. They need a Variety performer award NOW!
COMEDY WRITING (Aziz Ansari & Alan Yang, “Master of None”)
Atypical: Get it, AZIZ!!!! So glad “Veep“ and “Silicon Valley“ cancelled themselves out.
TV MOVIE (“Sherlock: The Abominable Bride”)
True Tenor: Yay Sherlock! Looks like Emmy voters weren’t ready to go “All the Way“ with HBO.
LIMITED SERIES (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”)
Sam Keys: I don’t mind “People vs OJ“ winning Limited Series, but I really hate how the producers/Kimmel acted like it was the only worthy winner.
TV MOVIE/MINI ACTOR (Courtney B. Vance, “The People v. O.J. Simpson”)
Teridax: Called it! Awesome win, Courtney B. Vance
TV MOVIE/MINI ACTRESS (Sarah Paulson, “The People v. O.J. Simpson”)
Atypical: Her green dress is giving me everything!
superdeluxe: The Sarah Paulson Coronation. I roll my eyes as I change the channel.
TV MOVIE/MINI SUPPORTING ACTRESS (Regina King, “American Crime”)
jf123: That was Jean Smart‘s. Would like to see Fargo walk home with at least one win tonight.
mafro987: She deserved a “Leftovers“ nomination, and “American Crime” deserved at least one win
TV MOVIE/MINI SUPPORTING ACTOR (Sterling K. Brown, “The People vs. O.J. Simpson”)
Stretchy: Standing O for Sterling, Nice!
AayaanUpadhyaya: Never been more happy to get a prediction wrong.
TV MOVIE/MINI DIRECTING (Susanne Bier, “The Night Manager”)
GusCruz: Susanne Bier is overrated.
VARIETY TALK SERIES (“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”)
BamaEd: Praise the Lord that it wasn’t Jimmy Fallon!

cnmem10: Emmys be #OverAmySchu
