The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards is in the books. Another year of awards for TV dramas, comedies, and the actors and actresses in them. Jimmy Kimmel hosted and made a series of pretty bad jokes like suggesting Johnnie Cochran is in hell. And, the late night host also went on some really cringe-worthy tongue in cheek rants about diversity. So, all in all, it was a pretty regular awards show experience. A few of our TV faves from this past season won some big honors



Auntie Regina King went back to back like she's on the cover of Lethal Weapon.

And Courtney B. Vance got on stage & asked, "y'all mind if I praise God?"

And Laverne Cox didn't need an Emmy award because she dressed up as one. (She also spoke a fine word.)

But this was hands down the best moment of the night. ( I see you Lucas.)
