Like, I KNOW that Julia Louis-Dreyfus is consistent excellent. She’s also acknowledged for being consistently excellent. There are a lot of people who are consistently excellent but who go unappreciated. Tracee Ellis-Ross Full Story

There was more, this year, about SNL than in… almost decades. That sounds insane, but it’s true—and you heard Lorne Michaels say so in one of the most dour acceptance speeches in my memory. Maybe he was tired from having won four more trophies last week, but you know what? Nobody cares. Full Story

You know what it was that did it? It was that one particular line during VEEP’s win for Best Comedy Series. Showrunner David Mandel, in his speech, said they had a “no asshole policy” on the show “…and everyone abides by it except Julia”. And everybody laughed. Full Story

HOW. DARE. THEY. There are a few things we can count on during award shows: someone is going to say something stupid (looking at you Shailene Woodley), there are going to be well-intentioned, poorly-executed Trump jokes (Melissa McCarthy was RIGHT there), and the wrong person will get the oh-so-rude musical play-off too soon. Full Story

The only tiny downside of the amazing spate of shows that got to fight for acclaim last night is that when everything is this good, not only are the shows themselves not always acknowledged (I was almost able to spare you guys my regular ranting about The Americans), but when you have A+ performance on A+ performance, someone’s got to lose. Full Story

By now, you know how I feel about Chance the Rapper. It probably won’t be a surprise to you that I screamed and threw my phone across my living room when he popped up during the Emmys opening musical number.
