How 2017 Emmy Awards made Black history

Elisabeth Moss Says Scientology Hasn't Impacted Her Success in Hollywood

Elisabeth Moss appears on stage to accept her award at the 2017 Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (September 17) in Los Angeles.

The Emmys ceremony capped a breakout year for the freshman drama, which made headlines for its all-too-prescient storylines in the Trump era.

The night started off with a jazzy musical number performed by the host, Stephen Colbert.

"He began with a politically charged song-'Don't worry about global warming or the Middle East cause of everything's better on TV". We know what's taking place is fictional, and we're okay with that because fantasy can be better than reality when our brains are overwhelmed. "Looking forward to the tweets".

Its haul of five Creative Arts statuettes included outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for Melissa McCarthy, whose Unhinged Spicey take on embattled White House press secretary Sean Spicer came to embody early criticism of the administration. Not only did Donald Glover walk away with the lead actor in a comedy trophy, he became the first African-American human being to win Outstanding Director of a Comedy Series.

She was accompanied on stage by Master of None co-creator Aziz Ansari.

He added that countries needed to trust each other when they say that they have destroyed all their nuclear weapons . Also Wednesday, the Security Council held a high-level meeting on its far-flung peacekeeping operations.

She also used the awards ceremony to send a more overt message to two women - firstly her mother, whom she credited in her acceptance speech with being "brave and strong and smart".

"My LGBTQI family-The things that make us different, those are our superpowers". She was emotional, surprised and self-effacing all at once.

"And for everybody out there that showed us so much love for this episode, thank you for embracing a little Indian boy from SC and a queer black girl from the South Side of Chicago", she added. And the actors who play President Donald Trump and former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton - Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon - both won Emmys for supporting roles in a comedy.

One of the first minority actors to win an Emmy was none other than Donald Glover. It took the prize for best drama television series. And since the show directly challenges the patriarchy as a system of oppression, we have even more reason to believe in this double-edged message.

Aside from winning Emmy's for his hard work, he is also noted as a rapper and comedian. She became a feminist meme. "It's like an out-of-the-body experience - and then, you immediately try to remember everybody you have to thank!" she said.
