For Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series it was FINALLY a win for Tatianna Maslany for her riveting, and I mean riveting work on "Orphan Black". "I'll tell you, the Emmys are so diverse this year, the Oscars are now telling people we're one of their closest friends".
Veteran shows dominated the awards at this year's Emmys, which were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, with HBO's "Game of Thrones" and "Veep" winning best drama and best comedy, respectively, for the second straight year. In fact, here's the monologue she worked so hard on. He even took shots at Donald Trump and his run for presidency pinpointing Mark Burnett as being the catalyst for it.
Actor Jeffrey Tambor, victor of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for "Transparent".
He called for Hollywood to make him the last non-transgender actor to get such a role. (And who could be cruel enough to object, after she revealed that her father died Friday?) That was followed by another repeat victor, Jeffrey Tambor forTransparent, but in his case any other result would have been a miscarriage of justice. Before that, she honed in on GOP contender Trump's campaign.
After winning best comedy actress for a fifth consecutive time for HBO's "Veep", Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays flawed USA president Selina Meyer on the show, said "I want to personally apologize for the current political climate".
"I think that "Veep" has torn down the wall between comedy and politics". "Our show started out as a political satire, but it now feels more like a sobering documentary", she said.

LOS ANGLES Audiences for Sunday's Emmy Awards show appeared to be slightly down from last year's record low, according to early TV ratings data on Monday. "So, this is nice, but this evening genuinely has a sense of loss". It looks like O.J. Simpson was the big talk of the town at the ceremony.
Regina King claimed the award for supporting actress in a limited series for "American Crime", her second trophy for the program. I'm hoping that 2017 brings a funnier host or hostess and a bit more variety in the acting races. But she knew who to credit.
"If your show doesn't have a dragon or a white Bronco in it, go home right now". "Big fan of yours, too", with a photo of McKinnon in character as Clinton. Her tearful acceptance speech was the most emotional of the night as her win came just two days after the death of her father, William Louis-Dreyfus. When the announcer introduced Bill Cosby as the next presenter, the audience looked stunned.

Bush asked Kimmel if he was a nominee for an Emmy award, and when Kimmel said yes, Bush said, "Wow, what's that like?"
