Emmy Awards 2018. And the Winners are…

A night filled with the best people from television, the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards was filled with many surprises as well as some sure shot winners.

Television’s biggest night just happened and it was nothing less than magical. Star’s flooded the red carpet at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on September 17 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown LA, California.

The 70th Emmy Awards that was hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost from Saturday Nights Live was broadcasted live by NBC in the U.S.

A night filled with the best people from television, the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards was filled with many surprises as well as some sure shot winners.

But comparing this year’s event to the previous ones, we can say that it was a bit flat and well, boring.

Every award functions these days have become a platform for actors and artists to raise voice against several issues like abuse, violence, discrimination, and many other things in the industry and the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards was no exception.

In the opening monologue hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost touched the issues like the #MeToo movement, the diversity issues in films and television, and the cancellation of the show “Roseanne” following the controversy of Roseanne Barr’s racist tweets and her being fired.

But there weren’t any outstanding speeches from any of the winners that would change someone’s life or encourage the viewers to stand up to fight for their rights right away.

However, there was a proposal. Director Glenn Weiss while accepting his Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special for directing 2017 Oscars took the stage to get down on his knee and propose to his girlfriend Jan Svendsen.

And obviously, the Emmy Awards 2018 wouldn’t be complete without Chrissy Teigen and her reactions.

Teigen basically won the best reaction of the year when she made a face during the opening of the two hosts.
