Before we proceed, a look at the highs and lows of the award night might interest you. It was the 68th Emmy Awards, and the venue was filled to the brim with Hollywood’s biggest names.
The show was an equivalent to the Oscars so you wouldn’t expect anything less.
“Ladies and gentlemen, four-time Emmy award-winner, Dr Bill Cosby. (…) Don’t worry. He’s not really here. I just wanted to see what you guys would do.”
— That was how Jimmy Kimmel [the host] set it off.
The joke about Cosby raised eyebrows as the veteran comedian is scheduled for trials on sexual assault. He’ll appear in a Pennsylvania court next year.
An then there’s this Tribute to Dad:
“I would like to dedicate this to my father, who passed away on Friday. And I’m so glad that he liked ‘Veep,’ because his opinion was the one that really mattered.”
— Those were the words from a tearful Julia Louis-Dreyfus after she accepted her fifth straight Emmy for Best Actress.
Julia featured in the award-winning HBO political satire.
