Our Fave Emmy Award Moments And Our Best-Dressed Stars
The 2017 Emmy Awards celebrating all television’s best took place, and we have our fave Emmy Award moments and looks right here!
The 69th annual celebration of television’s highest and most anticipated award, the Emmys, took place last night. Big Little Lies won big! The show won Best Limited series, Best Director (Jean-Marc Vallée), Best Actress (Nicole Kidman) and Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) in the Limited TV Series or Movie category.
History was made with Riz Ahmed becoming the first South Asian to nab a “best acting” award with his Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series. Meanwhile, Aziz Ansari, creator of Master of None, took home the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, which he shared with Lena Waithe, an actor and writer on the show. Lena made Emmy history too, becoming the first African-American woman to win in this category. The crowd gave them a standing ovation, and Lena said, “I gotta thank God or else I wouldn’t be standing here, I want to thank my mother for inspiring this story and allowing me to share it with the world. Thank you, Aziz, for pushing me to co-write this, bro. Now we’re standing here. I love you forever.”
Waithe concluded her speech by saying, “And for everybody out there that showed us so much love for this episode, thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from South Carolina and a little queer black girl from the south side of Chicago. We appreciate it more than you could ever know.”
While Elisabeth Moss, who wore a stunning pink Prabal Gurung gown, took home her first Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for The Handmaid’s Tale, the series itself took home the night’s most important award — Outstanding Drama series — beating Stranger Things, House of Cards and The Crown.
