Awards of the Day: Here's Everything You Would Possibly Want to Care About from Last Night's Emmys
The Emmys happened last night.
Now we really care about television, but it's often tough to find room to care about the Emmys. You probably feel something similar.
This year had a few notable moments, so let us just share them with you so you'll know what went down.
Andy Samberg's opening video highlights all of the great tv on these days
The best part was when he popped up behind television shows.
Here's his opening monologue
It's not amazing, but it's worth watching if you like Andy Samberg.
And we do.
Viola Davis became the first black woman to win an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
Her speech was some powerful, powerful stuff.
Game of Thrones won the big award
The Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series went to the fifth season of the violent-softcore-fantasy show.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also won for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series with the episdoe "Mother's Mercy".
Peter Dinklage, and his covert manbun, won again
He won his second Emmy for playing Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones.
He looks genuinely surprised when they called his name.
The biggest disappointment was that Amy Poehler didn't win
In her last chance to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Parks and Recreation, the Emmy went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Amy was chill about it.
The biggest surprise was Jon Hamm's win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
After 16, 16, nominations for the incredible Mad Men, Jon Hamm finally was awarded the Emmy in his last chance to receive it for that show.
He made his way up to the stage with grace.
And his speech was thoughtful, short and sweet.
Other things happened, but these were probably the most important.
