2018 Emmy Winners Are Kind Of Okay

As you’ve probably noticed, our posts are appearing on the front page a day after they are published. It’s a little industry secret. Shhh. If you want a workaround until this problem is fixed, you can click on the author name at the top of the page. This will reveal the latest posts. Anyway, by the time you read this, you’ll already know the outcome of the 2018 Primetime Emmys, if you ever cared, but hopefully your bitter asses will have some resentment towards the winners worth sharing in the comments.  

Hollywood insiders go into hyperlactation when any movie or television show references the biz we call show. Blow job factory Emma Stone’s Academy Award for La La Land knows what I’m talking about. It’s because of this that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel racked up eight wins, including one for Alex Borstein and one for the lead actress Rachel Brosnahan.

Darren Criss really went out on a limb to portray a gay man for American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, and was rewarded accordingly with a win. Let’s see. I hate John Mulaney, Bill Hader is homophobic, Thandie Newton is cool, and Claire Foy is more bangable than you probably think. What else?
