2018 Emmy Awards

The winners of 2018’s Emmy Awards have been revealed!

This year, the Emmys were broadcasted live from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles at 10am (AEST) on NBC and were hosted by Saturday Night Live comedians Colin Jost and Michael Che.

Many big named celebrities were seen on the gold carpet today including Tina Fey, Kristen Bell, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, Sarah Paulson, Connie Britton, Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel, just to name a few.

Kate McKinnon, Ricky Martin, Titus Burgess and RuPaul opened the show with a skit along with a song about diversity, which claimed to have solved Hollywood’s diversity problem, before finally saying that they had a long way to go.

Colin Jost and Michael Che sure knew how to entertain the crowd. The pair had one of the best opening monologue jokes.

“This year the audience is allowed to drink in their seats — because the one thing Hollywood needs right now is people losing their inhibitions at a work function.”

The pair welcomed everyone in the audience and people watching at home.

“Our network, NBC, has the most nominations of any broadcast network — which is kind of like being the sexiest person on life support. It’s not good.”

The Netflix nominations has to be the scariest thing you can hear as a network exec — except, ‘Sir, Ronan Farrow is on line one’.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is “what black people call history. It’s Roots for white women. Roots with bonnets!”

They also made fun about streaming service Netflix: “How is Netflix getting all that money? It’s $9 a month and everyone I know shares an account. Netflix is like that Instagram model that’s always in Dubai and you’re like, yeah — but what do you REALLY do?”

“TV has always had a diversity problem. They did 15 seasons of ER without ONE Filipino nurse? Have you BEEN to a hospital?”

The biggest surprise at the Emmys this year was a marriage proposal. American director Glenn Weiss took to stage to accept his award for Directing a Variety Special but accepting the award wasn’t the only thing that was on his mind. Weiss went on thanking everyone and talked about the death of his mother just two weeks earlier.

“Mum always believed in finding the sunshine in things, and she adored my girlfriend Jan. Jan, you are the sunshine in my life, and mum was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend — because I want to call you my wife.”

A marriage proposal live on television with the whole world watching had the audience in shock as well as Jan, who was in the audience.
