  • Saturday Night Live cast and crew accept the Emmy award for outstanding variety sketch series

Late-night host James Corden joked that the hashtag #EmmysSoWhite should get trending.

After the stars strutted up the red carpet, the show opened with a daring song-and-dance number poking fun at an array of hot-button issues in America. A record-setting 36 non-white actors were nominated for Emmys this year, and you know what that means. we solved racism and sexism!

At the gala, Peter Dinklage took home the best supporting actor prize for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister on "GoT", which was ineligible past year. Claire Foy won lead actress for Netflix's "The Crown".

Rachel Brosnahan from Highland Park and Alex Borstein from Deerfield were honored for the acclaimed Amazon series, which also won the prize for best comedy series. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino picked up bookends for writing and directing.

Criss thanked Director Ryan Murphy for "entrusting" him with the role of Andrew Cunanan, the killer in the series. Emmy victor Glenn Weiss proposed marriage during his acceptance speech.


"I don´t even believe in god but I´m going to thank her tonight", Newton quipped.

Presenter Michael Douglas had advice for the losers: "Carry that rage".

Last year, Che said Boston was the most racist city he had ever visited.

"Saturday Night Live" is predicted to take home Emmys for Best Variety Sketch Series and Best Comedy Supporting Actress (Kate McKinnon). It was the only award of the night to go to a broadcast network show, a reflection of how TV tastes have changed - and no doubt an omen for another historic ratings low for this awards show.
