See the complete list of winners for the 68th Annual Emmy Awards

09.19.2016

Oh, it's good to be a nerd. Last night's Emmy Awards was not only a night where laughs were shared and history was made, but it also saw many fan-favorite shows walking away with gold. The HBO sensation GAME OF THRONES walked away with top honors giving it 38 total awards, making it the most awarded show in history, topping FRASIER which had 37. As well, shows like ORPHAN BLACK, SHERLOCK and ARCHER (the latter during last week's Creative Arts ceremony) walked away with premium prizes, while comedy vets Louie Anderson and Patton Oswalt won their first awards (for Outstanding Supporting Actor and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special).

Other winners included Julia Louis-Dreyfus taking home her FIFTH consecutive Lead Actress statue (comedy), while THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON cleaned house in the Limited Series category. Though this ceremony was as fast-paced as a three hour awards ceremony can go, and was quite humorous thanks to the hosting job by Jimmy Kimmel, I can't say I was totally happy with all of the results. I mean, come on, how can GAME OF THRONES not win even one of its five (that's right, five!) Supporting Actor/Actress nominations. Damn you, Maggie Smith!

Anyone complaining about the winners should give the shows a chance. Bob O'Denkirk is great, but better than Rami Malek? ...no. You obviously have not seen Mr. Robot. The People vs. OJ Simpson is surprisingly well written. I really think all of you are judging before watching. Game of Thrones is over rated. It's good, but god damn, the fans are in love with it like it's the only good thing on TV.

There's some good and bad choices on here. I'm happy Tatiana Maslany and Ben Mendelsohn won. On the negative side though are Kate McKinnon and the Patton Oswalt show. I just don't get McKinnon's appeal and Oswalt completely phoned in that routine.

Wow... Looking at these lists, makes me realize that I'm not missing out on anything, by not watching t.v. The only things on here, that are worth watching is Better Call Saul & maybe Sherlock (still haven't gotten to that one yet). I know everyone loves Game Of Thrones, but I'm going to wait until the series is over, and binge watch the whole thing. Other than those three, everything else on here, I've either never heard of, or it's complete crap (Key & Peele, American Horror Story, O.J.

Also, how can you have all of this crap in here, and no love for Shameless?

Happy to see Jeffrey Tambor, and Louie Anderson win for their respected categories. Was hoping for Liev Schreiber to win as well, but maybe next year.

GoT is good, but Better Call Saul should've won best drama, and best actor should've gone to Kyle Chandler.

I also think BETTER CALL SAUL was better this year than GAME OF THRONES. I also think Bob Odenkirk's performance was better than Rami Malek. I can't comment on Kyle Chandler because I never saw BLOODLINE.

Better Call Saul was probably the best overall show of this last year.
