    Agree with everything, but why on Earth would you discount Jon Hamm win from 2015 if you count the Viola Davis’s one? Jon Hamm in Mad Men >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Viola Davis in HTGAWAM

    Tbh, I just forgot about Hamm, that’s it. I haven’t even seen Mad Men, so I couldn’t judge anyway. Plus, Davis absolutely deserved that win. And she should have followed it up with another one. And before you bring up the “theatrical performance” argument – that’s literally what the show demands from her sometimes. If you watched it regularly (instead of clips on YouTube), you’d understand.

    Is Julia Garner the youngest Drama Supporting Actress winner ever or is that Kristy McNichol? I know that Garner is most definitely the youngest to win the award in this century.

    Did Michael K Williams and Asante Blackk vote split?

    No, Ben Whishaw was ten times better than both of them, same with Paul Dano.

    I think Fleabag has opened the door for more edgy things to win, considering that Modern Family has won five times recently.

    I wonder if this could mean good things for Barry in the future.

    Away from the actual winners, I thought the show was abysmal. Literally everything fell flat other than one or two speeches (Jerome and Williams mainly) and some of the presenting pairs (I thought the Stiller and Newhart segment actually landed). The music was dreadful, the set pieces for Game of Thrones and Veep were unimaginative, the use of clips was uneven, and the less said about the opening/Ken Jeong/the variety segment, the better.

    You can really tell why the viewership is decreasing. This show would not have appealed to anyone who wasn’t invested in the award races.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Let’s ignore the winners for a while and discuss the show. There’s not so much to discuss, as NBC’s design from last year was kept nearly intact. And maybe you disagree, but I find it awful. It all looked as if they arranged it all in a single afternoon. They didn’t even show the split screen when winners were announced. This takes away the suspense in so many categories. I wanted to see actors’ faces, I wanted to see JLD’s reaction to losing. It might have been hilarious. Is it that hard to make it work? They could have made it work on that huge screen on stage (which, ironically, is the only sets they had).

    Sorry, Emmys, but your whole show looks like a cheap PowerPoint presentation.

    McNichol won in her teens, so that’s probably the record in this category and will hold for years to come.

    The Emmy’s need a host. The Oscars got away without one by just having presenters do occasional bits throughout, but that doesn’t work here. The ceremony is too dense and needs to move along, there is only time for a host to make recurring gags rather than allotting time for a new bit introduction by randos every 30 minutes.

    So embarrassing. The Globes do the same thing and I hate it too. When you see them light up when their name is read, for just a brief second in this cynical industry there’s a real moment of magic, after a real moment of suspense. It legitimately feels like a ceremony by people who don’t watch or like ceremonies, or who would leave one of the nominees playing in the background while they left to vacuum or do taxes.

    I think the only part of it all I like (besides the winners) is Angela Bassett saying Courtney B. Vance was her favorite nominee/winner but that’s because I’m a human constructed of corn and cheese.

    Let’s be real. I told you no GOT actress was winning. Bye Thatcher.

    I serve the tea (politely)
