70th Primetime Emmy Awards – Commentary, Reactions and Best Dressed

The Emmys happened this morning! From midnight to 5AM I was glued to the screen, watching the Red Carpet and then the actual ceremony.

emmys-2018-review

Hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, I liked the show. It was quick, efficient but… kinda boring?

It was a bit bland and there was very little tension! They announced the categories so quickly that I couldn’t even work up any sort of suspense. And having the narrator (??) / voice-of-God person read the nominees’ names might have saved time, but it felt too rushed. Moreover, they took unnecessary breaks between less important categories rather than the ones people are notoriously interested in.

The banter between the presenters was as awkward as always with the exception of Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, obviously. He is adorable, nothing he does is ever not entertaining.

Betty White is obviously an american treasure but bringing her on stage felt unnecessary. I get that she is so important but that poor woman is 96. Leave her at home. Don’t parade her around.

And as much as I love Maya Rudolf and Fred Armisen, their segments fell so incredibly flat. It was not funny.

I won’t even talk about the proposal because I was so embarrassed and I hated it so much. Like, so much. I would have run out of the theatre screaming in horror. I hated it. But congratulations, I guess…

Not unto the part that left me angry and disappointed.

They bragged about how diverse the nominees were and yet,

22 out of the 26 awards given out were won by white people.

Only 4 non-white people won.

How is that possible?

The irony is that at the beginning they did this great opening with a diverse cast singing about how diverse they were. And then they didn’t awarded any Emmys to said diverse group of people.

WHAT?!

p.s. they should have let Kate McKinnon host. She is the best. And also a woman.

Atlanta didn’t win anything, which is a disgrace. Atlanta’s “Teddy Perkins” deserved the award for Outstanding Directing. And Matthew Rhys as best lead actor? Sterling K Brown was in his same category. Sterling.

I also have bone to pick with the outstanding leading actress in a drama. I want to say that I LOOOOOVE Claire Foy and her performance was magnificent but they overlooked Sandra Oh and Elisabeth Moss. If it were up to me, it would not have gone to Claire.

And the supporting actor in a drama series? Peter Dinklage? He is always brilliant but this season did not shine a light on him and it was a little bit weak.

Thandie Newton was amazing in Westworld. She was truly magnificent but I can’t help but feeling Yvonne Strahovski was robbed.

And the awkwardness in the outstanding variety talk series when people started chanting Stephen Colbert‘s name and John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight won? YIKES! I love them both but I think I might have wanted The Late Show to win.

Now I want to gush about two people I was so proud and thrilled they won:

Bill Hader for Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy and John Mulaney for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Special.

I’m so proud of them.

Before showing you the selection of dresses I fell in love with, a special shout out to shows like “RuPaul Drag Race” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” for bringing parts of the LBGT+ community to the screen.

I’ll say it again… Atlanta was robbed. And sure, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel was fantastic but cool it. A few of those awards were questionable.

NOW UNTO THE FASHION!

70th Primetime Emmy Awards – Comedy (Writing, Directing, Guest Actor and Guest Actress)

And now comedy! Probably my favourite genre!

But first, in case you missed it, go check out my first installment in this 70th Emmy Awards series! It’s Limited Series, Variety and Reality

Let’s go!



Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series

  • Altanta “Alligator Man”, written by Donald Glover
  • Atlanta “Barbershop”, written by Stefani Robinson
  • Barry “Chapter One: Make Your Mark”, written by Alec Berg and Bill Hader
  • Barry “Chapter Seven: Loud, Fast and Keep Going”, written by Liz Sarnoff
  • Silicon Valley “Fifty-One Percent”, written by Alec Berg
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel “Pilot”, written by Amy Sherman-Palladino

This is really hard. These shows are all amazing. “Barbershop” is so well-written and it holds the tention until the last seconds, both episodes of Barry are devastatingly scary and yet hilarous;

and Amy Sherman-Palladino! COME ON!

Alec Berg is nominated for two different shows! That definitely says something! I might have to go for Barry. It’s such a new and innovative show and it deserves recognition!

2017 Winner: Master of None “Thanksgiving”, written by Lena Waithe

My Winner: Barry “Chapter One: Make Your Mark”, written by Alec Berg and Bill Hader



Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series

  • Altanta “FUBU”, directed by Donald Glover

  • Silicon Valley “Initial Coin Offering”, directed by Mike Judge
  • The Big Bang Theory “The Bow Tie Asymmetry”, directed by Mark Cendrowski
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel “Pilot”, directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino

Sorry Bill, I love you and you were amazing as director but…

Teddy Perkins directed by Hiro Murai.

2017 Winner: Atlanta “B.A.N.”, directed by Donald Glover

My Winner: Atlanta “Teddy Perkins”, directed by Hiro Murai



Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series

2018-08-20-13.png

I can’t decide between Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph.

Wanda Sykes, Tiffany Haddish, Jane Lynch and Molly Shannon were great in their roles but they didn’t leave me with an Emmy worthy impression.

Tina was phenomenal as always but Maya’s role as the judge in “The Good Place” was unforgettable.

Sorry Tina, I love you. Like, a lot…

2017 Winner: Melissa McCarthy, SNL

My Winner: Maya Rudolph, The Good Place



Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series

STERLING K BROWN “BROOKLYN NINE-NINE” FOREVER BITCHES!!!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine At San Diego’s Comic Con

THE NINE-NINE WAS AT COMIC CON 2018!!!

NBC hasn’t aired an episode yet and it has already done more publicity to the show than FOX in 5 years.

I love NBC right now. Home of the best comedy TV shows ever aired.

There was a panel, loads of interview and Q&A! In case you missed them, here are all the ones I have found!

So much happened at Comic Con and I could not be happier. The show was finally celebrated as it truly deserved, there was so much love from fans (even Mark Hamill in incognito at the panel)

I am so happy for them. And I cannot wait for season 6 to air in 2019 ON FORKING NBC!!!!

Top 10 Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5 Episodes

I’ve talked extensively about my love for Brooklyn Nine-Nine on this blog and I’m not about to stop now!

Season 5 has been perfect.

Usually by the fifth season, a show is starting to deteriorate but Michael Schur, Dan Goor and all the writers and producers have preserved its high quality.

There are so many perfect episodes and I am still not sure I can pick my top 10 favourites. I loved every minute of every second of the 22 episodes. I wish I could watch it all over again as if it t were the first time.

If only that was possible!

EPISODE 22(my review) and Peraltiago


Of course, the best episodes of season 5 of Brooklyn 99 are all 22 episodes.

There is no doubt in that. But these are the ones that made me laugh and/or cry the most. I love this show and I’ll never get tired of talking about it.

I really want to know your favourites!
