Emmys: Elisabeth Moss Drops Two F-Bombs During Acceptance Speech

The Handmaid's Tale star Ann Dowd might have been the most shocked Emmy winner ever

Brooker said it "was a story about love, and love will defeat hate, it will win".

Riz Ahmed won Best Actor in a Limited Series for last summer's The Night Of.

"We did have a whole story line about an impeachment, but we abandoned that because we anxious that someone else might get to it first", Louis-Dreyfus said. Go home. Get to work. "Maybe we can help with the fight". Donald Glover, the creator and star of FX's Atlanta-which has an all-black main cast-took home three Emmys, for directing, acting, and Best Comedy.

He also hailed his castmates on the ensemble drama. "Better than those white folks that raised Webster".

Alec Baldwin was tapped as best supporting actor in a comedy for his Trump impersonation.

Actress: Pamela Adlon, "Better Things"; Allison Janney, "Mom"; Jane Fonda, "Grace and Frankie"; Ellie Kemper, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep"; Tracee Ellis Ross, "black-ish"; Lily Tomlin, "Grace and Frankie".

"We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were afraid somebody else might get to it first", she joked - one of many barbs during the night aimed at Trump.

Perennial favorite HBO led the networks with 10 Emmys.

Atlanta's Donald Glover, accepting his award for Best Actor in a Comedy, said: "I want to thank Trump for making black people No.1 on the most oppressed list".

The show's Reed Morano also picked up a statuette for directing. "I was just trying to remember everybody, and you do have a weird out of body experience". This is the high point. "There would never be another season as insane, as unpredictable, as frightening, as exhausting or as exhilarating".

"I've been acting since I was 11-years-old and I think I've worked with maybe 12 women", Dern said. Can you imagine a performance more tailor-made to collect Emmys? Melissa McCarthy, whose impeccable impersonation of Spicer on Saturday Night Live was rewarded last week at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, looked on awkwardly from the crowd.

For Baldwin, the win was his third career Emmy. Show us something we haven't seen. "And for all of you out there in motion pictures and television, don't stop doing what you're doing, the audience is counting on you".


The resonance and success of The Handmaid's Tale shows how important it is to create more opportunities for women in the TV industry, as Moss said: "We've made incredible progress".

The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards honored the best in television this previous year and is already being recognized as one of the most diverse and inclusive editions of the awards.

"Back in 1980, in that movie we refused to be controlled by a "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot", said Fonda, quoting her character from "9 to 5".

Published in 1985, "The Handmaid's Tale" won and was nominated for several prizes at the time, and was adapted into a movie in 1990.

That was the sentiment shared by "The Handmaid's Tale" producers and stars as they basked backstage in their eight Emmy wins, including the top prize of best drama series.

NBC's uplifting family drama "This Is Us" missed its shot at being the first network drama to win since Fox's "24" in 2006, but the network's "SNL" won a leading nine awards among programs. She called domestic abuse a "complicated, insidious disease".

With HBO's "Game of Thrones" not airing its seventh season during Emmy Award eligibility period, the race for best drama is wide open. She also set the record for the number of wins by an actor playing one character, breaking a tie with Candice Bergen ("Murphy Brown") and Don Knotts ("The Andy Griffith Show").

Even though Hulu has a smaller programming budget than competitors like Netflix and Amazon, "Handmaid's" is the first streaming service to land a best drama victory.

"The Voice" won the reality competition category.

Then there was host Stephen Colbert's string of one-liners about the man he considered the biggest television star of the past year, and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer's jaw-dropping cameo in Colbert's opening monologue.

"Saturday Night Live", for which Trump was an endless fount of comedy during his campaign and early presidency, had its best Emmys haul in the show's 41-year history.
