September 12, 2019
Surprise winners, deserving winners, first-time winners, repeat winners... and a hit-and-miss performance by host Jimmy Kimmel added up to a speedy 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.
September 11, 2019
In addition to an entertaining telecast, this year's Emmys also got its winners right. Just as the nominations proved less divisive than in years past, the winners were largely deserved.
September 11, 2019
A night marked by unexpected wins and funny, heartfelt speeches.
September 11, 2019
Host Jimmy Kimmel's approval ratings started off strong and then plummeted. The ABC late-night star opened the show in style. Then, somehow, he thought it would be a good idea to do a Bill Cosby-themed prank. Really?
September 11, 2019
The TV academy proved its superiority to the Oscars in terms of embracing new blood, people of color and strong women.
September 11, 2019
The 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards may have gotten so much right that it will be looked back on as a unicorn year, or maybe it's just that the show is finally catching up to the realities of Peak TV.
September 11, 2019
As the industry celebrated itself in a reasonably entertaining ceremony without too many gimmicks, gaffes, or upsets, it asserted that works of entertainment really can change the world.
September 11, 2019
The show moved briskly, the little bits of comedy provided by the presenters were sunny enough and Jimmy Kimmel did a great job as the host.
September 11, 2019
Dutiful and occasionally clever.
September 11, 2019
Jimmy Kimmel was mostly serviceable even if the overall show didn't touch on the upcoming election as much as many thought it might and his opening monologue was a bit bland.
September 11, 2019
In baby steps, opportunity is coming... and so is recognition. And with recognition, hopefully more opportunity.
September 11, 2019
This Emmys telecast was one of most exciting to view in recent memory, owing much to host Jimmy Kimmel's playful deadpan style.
September 11, 2019
The biggest shock was that, under the auspices of host Jimmy Kimmel, the telecast was a tight, joke-packed show that actually had the audacity to end early.
September 11, 2019
Now there's something you don't see too often -- an Emmy night that actually makes good television.
September 11, 2019
He may have been an Emmy loser, but Jimmy Kimmel struck the perfect note as the Emmys' host, balancing his signature edgy humor with a let's-get-this-thing-over-with pace.
September 11, 2019
Kimmel might have lost out to "Last Week Tonight" for an Emmy -- but maybe he'll win a statuette next year for his hosting chops.
September 11, 2019
Operating under the belief that television itself is interesting enough, the telecast mercifully skipped most of the traditional (and time-sucking) taped bits and/or musical numbers designed to distract audiences from the actual proceedings.
September 11, 2019
The establishment won a handful of awards, but the strength, artistic superiority and strangeness of TV was on full, glaring display.
September 11, 2019
The ceremony did an admirable job of acknowledging and flattering a lot of what's worthy and important in television right now. It was also a flat-out entertaining show that affirmed the immediacy and power of the medium.
September 11, 2019
For the most part, the combination of solid choices and playful moments made for a reasonably good, occasionally aggravating evening.
