70th Emmy Awards Lacked Network TV Winners

 
 

The evening was hosted by Saturday Night Live head writers and "Weekend Update" co-anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che. The show kicked off with a star-studded skit led by Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon that poked fun at the Academy’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity.

After much soul-searching on the part of Hollywood, especially at awards shows, the skit—which eventually pulled in a veritable roll call of culturally, physically, racially and sexually diverse Hollywood, including John Legend, Rupaul, Ricky Martin, Kristen Bell and Aidy Bryant—set the show off to a rollicking start.

Che and Jost continued the party, coming out to roast Hollywood’s well-meaning, but often ham-fisted attempts at diversity at all costs, but ultimately concluding that television has truly come a long way in the past 70 years.

Going in, HBO’s Game of Thrones led the pack, raking in 22 nominations, after missing the eligibility window last year. Westworld, another HBO drama, landed 21 nods, as did NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale was hot on their heels with 20, and FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story nabbing 18 and FX’s Atlanta earning 16.
