September 11, 2019
Kimmel's attitude, one of derision and disdain, wore poorly over the course of the broadcast.
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
Though the show moved along at a brisk clip, too much of it felt like a rerun of earlier awards shows -- from some of the more predictable winners to the fact that many of host Jimmy Kimmel's comedy bits have been done before.
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 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
Sure, Jimmy Kimmel's jokes occasionally missed the mark, but in a year of Peak TV, the awards felt perceptive, spotlighting talent across genres and platforms.
September 11, 2019
Kimmel did make the Emmys great again even if he didn't win the Outstanding Variety Talk Series trophy and get wonderfully mocked by Matt Damon.
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
Jimmy Kimmel did a strong job of walking that line as last night's Emmy Awards host, deftly pivoting between congratulations and mockery.
September 11, 2019
In baby steps, opportunity is coming... and so is recognition. And with recognition, hopefully more opportunity.
September 11, 2019
Now there's something you don't see too often -- an Emmy night that actually makes good television.
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 overall impression of the speeches alone made the 2016 Emmys extraordinary, and, while such earnest candor and original voices can't be relied upon each year, the ceremony as a whole would continue to benefit from a similar brand of courage.

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 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
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
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
A night marked by unexpected wins and funny, heartfelt speeches.
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
[Jimmy Kimmel]'s both the snarkiest of the major networks' late-night hosts and a TV classicist at heart, the sort of roastmaster and toastmaster who could spike the punchbowl without tipping it completely over.
