FAVORITE PARTS OF THE EMMYS

Sorry for the lack of true livelisting. I'm a failure.
  1. β€’
    That opening was πŸ’―
  2. β€’
    So many sick burns by Kimmel in his monologue. Straight roasted Mark Burnett about making Trump happen. Lotsa digs at OJ too.
  3. β€’
    Master of None winning! Alan's speech "a few more cameras instead of violins" and the weirdness of Aziz being played off. Like seriously what happened there?!
  4. β€’
    Kate McKinnon winning and her speech. Such real emotions. Thank you Ellen Degeneres and Hillary Clinton. Obviously.
  5. β€’
    Peter Scolari! I can't be the only kid who loved Bosom Buddies that wishes he became a bigger star, right? He's gold. Wonderfully awkward deadpan gold.
  6. β€’
    Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Love her. Apologizing for the current political climate. Her speech. Her dad died on Friday. How she powered through proves why she's the BEST.
    But this happened after. Because of course it did πŸ˜‚http://www.ew.com/article/2016/09/18/emmys-2016-richard-dreyfuss-julie-louis-dreyfus
  7. β€’
    Kimmel having them announce that Bill Cosby was presenting just to see what the audience's reaction would be. Good in theory. Didn't play well in the room.
  8. β€’
    PBJs for everyone. I'm loving this trend of providing the audience with random food. And cracks about gluten free and epipens
  9. β€’
    Leslie Jones asking the accountants to protect her Twitter account πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and their faces while she's going off
  10. β€’
    Regina King winning. Good speech. "This rocks!"
    Though I'm highly disappointed that her and Cuba Gooding Jr were in the same room and there was no Jerry Maguire reference the whole night. But there WAS a Snow Dogs reference!
  11. β€’
    The Amy Note. And the Amy mixup. πŸ’―
  12. β€’
    John Mayer and his guitar faces being part of the band.
  13. β€’
    The commercial for next week's premiere of Quantico
    I need Ryan Booth back on my tv screen please.
  14. β€’
    Sterling K. Brown may be my new favorite actor based simply on his speech alone. He seems like such a cool real dude. "Chocolate Cardinal in the house!"
  15. β€’
    Tina and Amy, obviously. Half thank. "I thought you turkeys were trying to trick me again"
    Took me a minute to realize they actually had two halves of an Emmy πŸ˜‚
  16. β€’
    Being reminded that Courtney B. Vance and Angela Basset are together. Man, they're great.
  17. β€’
    Patton Oswalt winning.
  18. β€’
    John Oliver actually asking to be played off.
  19. β€’
    Waiting for what Kimmel was going to do if he lost. He had said he had a strong bit planned if he lost. It was more than I hoped it could have been. Why?
  20. β€’
    MATT DAMON! Seriously. Easily my favorite part of the entire show. Just so good. I couldn't stop laughing. 🍎 Best Feud Of All Time
  21. β€’
    Sidenote. We need more of Comedy Matt Damon. It's been too long.
  22. β€’
    Grease Live winning! Fight me all you BeyoncΓ© people. The sheer logistics of how they filmed Grease Live blew my mind and they deserved it.
  23. β€’
    Plus, it gave us this: "I wouldn't wanna be those guys when Kanye finds out they beat BeyoncΓ©"
  24. β€’
    Seeing Henry Winkler walk out and know immediately he was going to talk about Garry Marshall. Ugh. That death hit me way harder than I ever thought it would. "I make recess" thank you for inviting us into your schoolyard. Agreed, Fonzie. He gave us so much.
  25. β€’
    Sidenote: is Hallelujah the official all-time in memoriam song at every awards show now? Not that I'm complaining.
    Sidenote: damn you 2016. Damn you for taking so many good ones.
  26. β€’
    Rami Malek's opening line: "Please tell me you're seeing this too"
  27. β€’
    The Orphan Black chick finally winning. Still haven't gotten to watch the show yet but you don't have to watch it to know that she's been deserving of an Emmy win for a very long time. Also love that she brought her phone up with her.
  28. β€’
    Everything Larry David. Even more appreciated after finishing reading Seinfeldia (which I'm slacking on listing about. I'm a terrible book club leader)
  29. β€’
    It was swiftly paced. Flowed well. Made me laugh. Brought tears to my eyes. All good things. One of the better Emmys in quite a while πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
