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?

    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
