Yes, Teddy Perkins From 'Atlanta' Was Sitting Front Row At The Emmys

Yes, Teddy Perkins From 'Atlanta' Was Sitting Front Row At The Emmys

Your general review of this year's Colin Jost/Michael Che-hosted ceremony?

Dystopian female show "The Handmaid's Tale" and FX's surreal hip-hop comedy "Atlanta" were the biggest losers, taking none of the most prestigious awards and making a disappointing night for stars Elisabeth Moss and Donald Glover.

Che began the monologue by saying it was an honor to share the night with the "many many talented and creative people in Hollywood who haven't been caught yet".

"I don't even believe in God, but I am going to thank her tonight", Newton said. He continued, "That's true".

Emmy-winning director Glenn Weiss, left, turned his acceptance speech into a proposal to his girlfriend Jan Svendsen.

Saturday Night Live stars Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon welcomed nominees, Academy members, and guests with the announcement that this year's class of honorees is the most diverse in Emmy history. In the latter category, she faced off against, but ultimately overcame, frontrunners last year's victor "Atlanta's" Donald Glover and Hiro Murai, who was nominated for the much-talked about stylized standalone episode of "Atlanta" entitled "Teddy Perkins".

Killer storm far from over, U.S. officials warn as 'epic' rain falls
Hundreds of thousands of homes across North and SC are without power and tens of thousands of people are in emergency shelters. Gas stations were abandoned, with many pumps keeled over, and fallen trees cluttered many roads, making them impassable.

The networks, which air the Emmy telecast on a rotating basis, are so eager for the ad dollars it generates and its promotional value for fall shows that they endure online competitors sharing - and dominating - the stage.

For best drama, the nominees are "GoT", "The Handmaid´s Tale", "The Americans", "Westworld", "The Crown", Netflix retro sci-fi mystery "Stranger Things", and NBC family saga "This is Us". "And we're done!" Or as Oh herself put it in the bit, "It's a pleasure just to be Asian!" But this year "Atlanta" was also shut out of the other big categories for which it was nominated, including comedy actor, comedy writing, comedy directing and supporting comedy actress.

'I love you and I share this with you because you're an wonderful handsome brother. "I think if you're truly passionate about something, anything, that if you have a platform, you nearly have a moral obligation to speak up".

"I want to speak to the millennials today to let them know they are not alone when they speak out", said the 61-year-old Lewis.

Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Henry Winkler, "Barry".
