Big Night For HBO At Emmys With ‘Veep,’ ‘Thrones’.

The 50-year-old actress won the prestigious gong on Sunday night (20.09.15) in Los Angeles for her starring role in the legal drama series ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ and her acceptance speech – in which she thanked people who have “redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black” – has been praised by the ‘Scandal’ star. Actors Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie, Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Carice van Houten, writer David Benioff, actor Peter Dinklage, Conleth Hill, writer D.Viola Davis, after becoming the first African-American to win an Emmy for best actress in a drama, gave an acceptance speech that placed her award within the larger context of diversity in Hollywood. ‘In my mind, I see a line. Hamm was a sentimental favorite for winning best actor in his last chance with “Mad Men,” and Morgan was an emotional surprise in appearing onstage following his traumatic brain injury in an auto accident last year. The pay cable network won 14 awards Sunday night, with “Game of Thrones” named best drama, “Veep” best comedy and the miniseries “Olive Kitteridge” best limited series.

Love watching you shine! (sic)” She told ET Online: “I feel both excited and proud that one of us could be first, but mixed emotions about it being 2015 and we’re [still] talking about it. “I just hope this is now a part of the status quo that women of color are included in the narratives that continue to write lead roles for us, to rethink how we see a leading lady and we don’t have to have this discussion anymore.” Other African-American actresses who prevailed Sunday were Uzo Aduba of “Orange is the New Black” and Regina King of “American Crime.” Hamm had been nominated seven times before for his portrayal of Don Draper in the AMC drama and hadn’t won.

It has been a rough year for the actor, who underwent a stint in rehab and broke up with a longtime girlfriend, and the emotion showed on his face. “I turned around and realized that people were clapping for me,” he said later backstage. “I was mortified. When I finally regained consciousness, I was just ecstatic to learn that I wasn’t the one who messed up.” Samberg was a witty host, with an on-point opening montage that touched on the latest worry among television executives: that there are just too many shows out there for people to keep track of. Stewart, who left “The Daily Show” in August and is being replaced later this month by Trevor Noah, emerged from his television absence with a beard. “I have been off of television for six weeks, seven weeks, whatever it is.

This is the first applause I’ve heard,” he said. “It is a barren wasteland out there.” “Veep” claimed the top comedy award that ABC’s “Modern Family” had won for five straight years. She read a line she attributed to her show’s writers about how it must be an honor to honor her, then said it had actually been said by GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump. “Transparent” captured a best comedy actor award for Jeffrey Tambor and a directing award for creator Jill Soloway, giving both winners a chance to pay tribute to the show’s transgender themes.
