BEST CHARACTER VOICE-OVER: ALEX BORSTEIN (‘FAMILY GUY’)

Teridax: “I had Borstein up until the end, last minute switch to her co-star I definitely regret. Still, good for her for finally winning an Emmy as Lois Griffin. She deserves it for the series as a whole to be honest.”

BEST ANIMATED SERIES: ‘RICK AND MORTY’

Macca: “Finally.”

Pulp: “I thought ‘Rick and Morty’ winning would be too good to be true. Hopefully ‘BoJack Horseman’ will join it in the category next year.”

Teridax: “YES! ‘Rick and Morty’ FINALLY WON ANIMATED PROGRAM FOR ‘Pickle Rick’!!!! I am over the moon!”

BEST COMEDY GUEST ACTRESS: TIFFANY HADDISH (‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’)

Hunter-ish: “Emmy winner Tiffany Haddish!!”

Guest 2018: “The one who couldn’t get through the Oscar nominations announcement without forking up pronouncing nominee after nominee. Maya was robbed. Ted is cooked.”

Sasha: “Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy winner now? Another proof they do not watch tapes anymore. I know guest acting winners were sketchy even during tape system days, but still.”

BEST COMEDY GUEST ACTOR: KATT WILLIAMS (‘ATLANTA’)

Luca Giliberti: “All four guest categories went to people of color. Wow. Awesome!!!”
