From Viola Davis’ history-making win to Jeffrey Tambor’s well-deserved triumph, there were so many outstanding winners at the Emmys last night. However, we can’t help but wish that there were more categories in the mix to honor the best moments of the evening. Here are some of the accolades we wish were real....
The Cutest Baby Bump: Cat Deeley
The So You Think You Can Dance host was all smiles when she debuted her adorable baby bump on the red carpet.
Amy Poehler deals with a loss like a champ. Although Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for lead actress in a comedy series, Poehler still won everyone’s heart with her hilarious bit.
The Most Heartfelt Dedication: Jeffrey Tambor
During his touching acceptance speech, Jeffrey Tambor dedicated his award to the transgender community. “Thank you for your patience, thank you for your courage, thank you for your stories, thank you for your inspiration, thank you for letting us be part of the change,” he said.
The Most Powerful Speech: Viola Davis
Viola Davis made history at the Emmys as the first African-American woman to win for lead actress in a drama, but it was her speech that made the biggest impact. “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity,” she said. “You cannot win Emmys for roles that are simply not there.”
The Best Stage Entrance: Jon Hamm
Jon Hamm sure knows how to make an entrance. When the Mad Men star finally won an Emmy for his role as Don Draper, he practically crawled his way up to the podium.
The Best Comeback: Tracy Morgan
Following a terrible car accident and a long recovery, Tracy Morgan made a surprise appearance at the Emmys. We’re happy to know he hasn’t lost his sense of humor.
