Here is your full list of Emmy Award Winners for 2017

Late Night talk show host Stephen Colbert emceed the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS Sunday.

Freshman HBO sci-fi western drama, Westworld, and NBC sketch comedy series, Saturday Night Live, were the most nominated programs, each with 22 nominations heading into the awards show.

Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, NBC’s This Is Us, and Netlfix’s The Crown and Stranger Things were expected to walk away with awards.

One of my favorite nominated shows is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

Donald Glover Became the First Black Director to Win Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his FX show, Atlanta.

Highlights of some of the major categories were Drama Series with front-runners The Handmaid’s Tale from HULU and Stranger Things from Netflix. The Handmaid’s Tale emerged the winner.

For a good laugh, let’s look at Comedy Series. The top two, according to USA Today were FX’s Atlanta and HBO’s Veep, and the winner was Veep. Alec Baldwin won a well-deserved best supporting actor in a comedy series for portraying President Trump, which gave Saturday Night Live their best ratings in decades.

Also, so excited that Last Week with John Oliver won Outstanding Variety Talk Series.
