Stephen Colbert hosted the Emmys Sunday night, and he wasn’t afraid to do much of anything on stage. From high kicks for The Handmaid’s Tale, to baring his butt (kind of) on a spoof of Westworld, to bringing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on stage, nothing was off limits.
Women ruled the Emmys.
The Handmaids Tale and Big Little Lies were big winners taking home a combined 10 awards.
Elisabeth Moss won outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role in The Handmaid’s Tale. This was Elisabeth’s first Emmy win. The Handmaid’s Tale also won outstanding drama series.
Oprah Winfrey presented the outstanding drama Emmy, and she was ready for it. Oprah shared her pre-Emmy glamorization pics throughout the day on Instagram.
Nicole Kidman won leading actress in a TV movie/limited series for her gripping role in Big Little Lies. In her speech, she thanked her “two little girls” Sunday and Faith, as well as her “darling” Keith Urban. People are furious that Nicole failed to mention her two adopted children with Tom Cruise, Isabella (24) and Connor (22).
When Nicole’s TV hubby, Alexander Skarsgård, won best supporting actor in a TV movie/limited series for his role in “Big Little Lies”, he made a dash to Nicole.
Once Nicole saw Alexander in front of her, she couldn’t help but plant a kiss on him in front of her husband Keith. Keith seemed unfazed by the whole situation.
Sterling Brown won best lead actor in a drama series for his role in “This Is Us”. People boo’d when his speech was cut off. He did have a chance to shout out his co-stars saying, “You are the best white TV family a brother has ever had. Better than Mr. Drummond, better than the white folks that raised Webster.”
Donald Glover was a big winner and made history for his Emmy win. He became the first African-American to win for outstanding directing in a comedy series.
Ben Affleck was there supporting girlfriend Lindsay Snookus, who was one of the winners for outstanding comedy series for SNL.
