The 68th annual Primetime Emmys were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second time on Sunday, September 18. Kimmel kicked off the night by showing a video of his “road to the Emmys” where he sang with James Cordon to Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, including numerous nominated shows like Modern Family, Veep, The People VS. O.J. Simpson, and Game of Thrones.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus got emotional during her speech when she accepted her fifth consecutive Emmy for outstanding lead actress for her role on Veep. She dedicated the award to her late father, William, who passed away last Friday.
Sarah Paulson won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in
The People v. O.J. Simpson. Sarah emphasized the importance of portraying the real Marcia Clark, the mother of two, and the hard work she put into the case.
With a record-winning 12 Emmys, Game of Thrones swept all other nominees for Outstanding Drama Series. Director Miguel Sapochnik also won an Emmy for Directing for Drama Series.
The star filled event was full of emotion and cheers as our favorite actors embraced their awards, and thanked us for inviting them into our homes.
