     This year’s Emmy Awards have come and gone. The Emmys are for television shows and their acting, writing, and production. There’s an Emmy for just about everything.

“Game of Thrones” won Best Drama Series, Writing for a Drama Series, and Directing in a Drama Series. “Veep” took Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy Series, which is exactly what happened last year.

But for a ceremony that can be predictable and boring, there were a lot of first-time winners, including the FX miniseries “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” The series helped Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance, and Sterling K. Brown earn their first Emmy wins. Rami Malek won Best Actor in a Drama for his role in the USA show “Mr. Robot,” and actress Tatiana Maslany won Best Actress in a Drama for her many roles in BBC’s “Orphan Black.”

And after Comedy Central took home thirteen consecutive Emmys for Variety Talk Series, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO won the award. Last Sunday, HBO won six Emmys and won 22 overall.

However, compared to most major awards shows like the Oscars, there wasn’t very much controversy. There were no major issues that were brought up, nor were there any interesting things that happened.

     Jimmy Kimmel hosted the show, making jokes about the people in attendance and about Donald Trump, and he was probably the best part of the night.
