Ayyyyy!
Ayyyyy!

Jost and Che’s monologue was politely edgy. Che said he was happy to be amongst the Many creative people who haven’t been caught yet” and, on the awards allowing the audience of nominees to drink in their seats this year, Jost said, “Just what we need — people losing their inhibitions at a work functions.” There were jabs at Roseanne, Netflix, more on diversity.

Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen, who star in new Amazon series Forever, were brought on as Emmy Experts who maybe didn’t do too much research.

Michael Che starred in a taped segment called “The Reparation Emmys” where he gave posthumous awards to unrecognized performances: The JeffersonsMarla Gibbs, Good Times’ Jimmy Walker, A Different World’s Kadeem Hardison, Martin’s Tichina Arnold, John Witherspoon, and Jaleel White.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was a real sweep. In addtion to Best Comedy and Borstein’s award, Amy Sherman-Palladino won for Best Writing and Directing for a Comedy Series for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. and Rachel Brosnahan won for Best Actress.
