The 2015 Emmy Award were hot…as in the weather. Everyone was complaining about the weather, but the show must go on —and in air conditioner. There were several awesome highlights…Viola Davis’ big win, she the  first African-American to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama (congrats). “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone is opportunity,” Viola said in acceptance speech and it was beautiful. Jon Hamm crawled on stage to accept his award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in Mad Men. Amy Schumer’s sheer happiness for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for “Inside Amy Schumer” was hilarious (did you see her thank her makeup artist). And let’s not forget Andy Samberg take on diversity and TV binge watching for his monologue.
