Aww, I just want to hug Ann Dowd

Same.  Such a sweet, honest reaction.

Forgot to mention a yay for Alexander Skarsgard!  His speech was so cute.

I'll be honest, I would have been happy with Sam Bee or Seth Meyers winning the award and was actually pulling for Seth because I don't think he gets the recognition he deserves.

I would have been happy with a Sam Bee, Seth Meyers, or Stephen win if John Oliver did not win. I think your are right that Seth does not get that much recognition. I think he gets out shined by shows that are flashier. Seth seems more low key and I really like it.

It worked for Margo Martindale.  It can happen for Ann.

Yeah, that's who she was reminding me of right now.

I wish we could see clips for all the acting nominees.* I haven't see Handmaid's Tale or Big Little Lies but that little extra something might persuade me to.

*rather than a sketch with "Emmy"

I agree here too.  The "A Closer Look" Segments are Must Watch TV.

Somewhere in the depths of my cold, hard, child-not-being-fond-of heart, I have to like that kid because he LOVES theatre.  And so do I.

I had a bad feeling Aziz was going to get played off.  Pretty sure that happened last year too.  Poor guy: he always lets the second writer speak first and he doesn't get his chance to shine!

Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari winning for that Thanksgiving episode for Master of None is probably the highlight of all the wins so far. So well-deserved. That episode was absolute genius. Lena's speech was beautiful and made me tear up just a little bit.

And now a circlejerk for diversity

You really have to appreciate the irony here: CBS is  the least diverse of the broadcast neworks.  And when they had a show with a racially and trans diverse cast, Doubt, they dumped it  after two episodes.

I'm in the minority here but why do we need to hear about diversity....and the fact that Lena is the first African American woman to win got writing?  Who cares?  If she is talented why does it matter what race or gender she is?  The whole clip on diversity is so self righteous.  There has always been inclusion.  Making it about race IS racist.

Executives don't care.  If they were anymore shallow, they'd be a desert.

As many faults as I could find in the second season of Master of None, the Thanksgiving episode was an amazing episode of television. In general, not just of the show.

Because it's shocking that it hasn't happened yet

No there hasn't. Especially behind the camera. And that is the point.

And especially especially on CBS.

I dunno. Seems like a pretty big milestone worthy of mention. But that's just me

Not just you.  I agree completely. Congrats Lena.  And congrats Aziz.

Is Master of None on Netflix?  My sister has Netflix.  Please tell me it is on Netflix.
