I always feel the Emmys are the stepchild of the award shows, even more so than the Tonys. There is this certain care sometimes for the Golden Globes for television, rather than the Emmys themselves. We are constantly surprised though when they outshine, even though we shouldn’t. This year’s was an absolute win with Glenn Weiss (Winner of the Variety Special Emmy) proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen mid speech! Is this is the first marriage proposal at an award’s show? I believe so. There were some snubs of course (The Handmaid’s Tale), but also a lot of deserved wins.

Barry, the freshman show from HBO, won for Best Actor in a Comedy Series (Bill Hader) and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Henry Winkler), beating out a tough field like Atlanta‘s Donald Glover. The top prize of the night, Outstanding Drama Series, went to Game of Thrones. It’s hard to say Game of Thrones didn’t deserve it after this past season of great content (sorry Stranger Things). The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel took home wins in Lead Actress in a Comedy Series with Rachel Brosnahan, and Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series with Alex Borstein.

Thandie Newton’s take in Westworld (one of the best seasons of television in a while or most confusing, considering who you ask) got her a win, while Black Mirror took one for it’s Writing for a Limited Series, Movie, or a dramatic special. It’s hard not to be happy for some of these wins (including you Regina King) in a year that gave us so much damn good television. I for one have watched more television this year than year’s prior, and it’s good to see original content from HBO and Netflix reeling in some great wins. But what about Teddy Perkins? The ghoulish representation of Michael Jackson, portrayed by Donald Glover in Atlanta, was on hand at the show, hilariously creeping everyone out. That to me was the biggest snub, Atlanta absolutely winning NOTHING. A show that has only gotten better, and had one of the most poignant, most culturally relevant storylines, went home with a blip. Well, we always have the Golden Globes, right?

  • 關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。
