Despite declining ratings, this year’s Emmy ceremony went off with nary a hitch, even affording some refreshing upsets in the usual pool of repeat winners. Jimmy Kimmel too did a perfectly serviceable job keeping things moving, but naturally made a few gaffes in production of that opening sketch, the blooper reel of which you can watch right now.
The 2016 Emmys have arrived at last, hosted by none other than Jimmy Kimmel himself, and the competition is refreshingly tense this year. Will The People v. O.J. Simpson blow FX counterpart Fargo out of the water? What about The Americans’ first big competition, or Mr. Robot’s chances? We’ll be updating all through tonight’s broadcast, so keep it here for every winner (and loser!) from the 2016 Emmy Awards!
At last year’s Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel sent a message to Tracy Morgan, who had been hospitalized in a coma following a traffic accident that killed one of Morgan’s friends and fellow comedians. “Shout out to Tracy Morgan, we’ll see you next year, Tracy,” Kimmel told the audience at the time. Almost one year later, Morgan made good on Kimmel’s promise and surprised the Emmys crowd as he arrived on stage to present the final award of the night for Best Drama Series to a standing ovation from the crowd.
