"It's what I'm most interested in as a woman, shows that are about women". Some looks took 40 hours to create, others were decorated with over 3,700 crystals and for Emmy victor Elisabeth Moss, her pretty pink tea-length dress and accessories were created to deliver subtle messages to the patriarchy. This is the streaming platform's first hit to break out in such a serious way-and it's now grabbed a level of prestige that Netflix originals have yet to attain despite much time and many resources invested in its originals. Unfortunately, as is the nature of award shows, there could only be one victor.
One of the first minority actors to win an Emmy was none other than Donald Glover.

"SNL" lost out in the race for outstanding writing for a variety series.
Montreal's Jean-Marc Vallee took home the Emmy for outstanding directing for a limited series for "Big Little Lies".
Riz Ahmed won the Emmy for lead actor in a limited series or movie for HBO's "The Night Of".
Writing, Comedy: Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe, "Master of None". This is something of a comeback for the 41-year-old actress, who previously starred as Felicity Porter in Felicity from 1998 to 2002, for which she won a Golden Globe in 1999.
The opening remarks also included a handful of Donald Trump jokes as well as a surprise appearance by Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary.
