Well it’s official, folks! “Racism is over,” said Andy Samberg last night in his opening Emmys monologue. And if a white man said it in a tuxedo, it’s got to be true! Or at least kind of true.
But last night’s Emmys were the most diverse they’ve ever been in terms of nominations. And that’s pretty damn cool. Viola Davis became the first African American woman to win an Emmy for Best Leading Actress. That’s also pretty damn cool. Unfortunately all of this pales next to the coolness of Andy Samberg giving out his HBO GO login information, which, for the record is khaleesifan3@Emmyhost.com and the password is password1.
Watch Samberg’s opening hosting monologue for a good laugh and then watch Viola Davis’ acceptance speech for a good inspirational cry!
