Viola Davis, Tracy Morgan Highlight an Emotional, Funny 67th Emmy Awards

It was an emotional night at the Emmy’s, where some longtime bridesmaids finally became the bride (we’re looking at you, Jon Hamm), some very major milestones ocurred (yay, Viola Davis!!) and legends said their final (for now), goodbyes.

We could give you a list of the highlights, but why bother, just watch them below for yourself.

Let’s start with Andy Samberg’s opening number, which captured how it can feel to live in an era of too much good stuff on TV:

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

Making history, crushing her speech and totally owning the moment is one Viola Davis.


Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series

After 7 nominations, it’s finally his turn.

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series

Regina King, for killing it in the highly underrated American Crime.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

JLD can’t be stopped. She probably can’t even be contained!

Outstanding Variety Sketch Series

Comedy Central owned this category, considering they have not one but two of the best sketch shows, Inside Amy Schumer and Key & Peele. In the end, it was Schumer who went home with the award.

Tracy Morgan presents the Outstanding Drama Series to Huge Applause

It was great to see him up on stage. And to hear him land a joke at the end was nothing short of a miracle considering what he's been through. As for the winner? The same show that also received 24-Emmy nominations.
