I would like to throw in a strong disclaimer before I continue and let you all know that I didn’t actually watch the Emmys last night because I was sick af and went to bed at 6:30pm. HOWEVER, I spent the majority of today day watching clip highlights which makes me just as qualified to talk about the show as I am with any of the other shit I write about.
A lot of history making shit happened at the Emmys last night, a lot of amazing shows won a lot of awards, and for some fucking reason Sean Spicer was there, so let’s just get right down to it because it’s almost my bedtime and I want to go watch another episode of “American Vandal” (seriously, go watch that shit).
I usually don’t give THAT much of a shit about the Emmys, but this has been a great year for television. In the past year, we’ve seen Big Little Lies, Stranger Things, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Night Of capturing audiences across the board. I mean, I assume that’s true because I really like those shows!
Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale took home a fuck ton of awards last night, pretty much sweeping every category they were nominated for, and Riz Ahmed, who is a big celeb crush of mine, won an Emmy for The Night Of.
Julia Louis Dreyfus won her 10 millionth Emmy and Donald Glover won TWO Emmys for Atlanta (he was actually the first black actor to ever win an Emmy for directing an episode of a comedy show!)
There were a ton of super sexy celebrities there and for some reason they thought it would be funny to bring out Sean Spicer who, for some reason, is now in on the joke that is his existence.
However, the real star of the Emmys, and the only reason I’m even bothering to write about this shit even though I’m exhausted af, is Jane fucking Fonda, who turns 80 in December and showed up looking like this:
The fuck, girl?! I knew you still had it, but I didn’t know you still had it like THAT. My ass is 30-years-old and it will never look anywhere near as good as Jane Fonda at 80 and I’m ok with that, because Jane Fonda is clearly not of this damn world! Get it, girl.
