I was glad to see Bill Hader, Henry Winkler, and Last Week Tonight all win Emmys. I've never thought of Netflix as a place to watch television. I guess streaming has changed things. Plus I'm getting old.

I'm rooting for Merritt Wever (pictured below with "Godless" co-star Michelle Dockery) to win the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. In the Netflix Western series, she plays Mary Agnes McNue --a tough-talking, gun-toting widow in an Old West town run by women.

Five years ago, Wever won a Primetime Emmy -- and delivered one of the shortest acceptance speeches on record. She later acknowledged being overwhelmed because she hadn't expected to win. Maybe she deserves a second chance.

 

I saw Merritt Weaver in a LAW & ORDER:  CRIMINAL INTENT episode years ago and she was terrific.  She played the "alpha dog" of a pair of teenage girls who commit a murder.

A streaming service is a mother lode of films and television productions, and you've gotta love how perfect it is for binging. I'm certainly hooked!

She's become one of the noteworthy performers who have won Primetime Emmys for comedy and drama. Viewers of TV's "The Walking Dead" will remember Wever as the ill-fated Denise Cloyd, who served as the doctor for the Alexandria community during Season 6.

Alex Bornstein, who won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, has claimed two gold statuettes within the past two weeks.
 
At the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, September 8, Bornstein won the award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance. The veteran actress provides the voices for several characters on the FOX animated series "Family Guy," including Lois Griffin, Babs Pewterschmidt, Natalia the Belarusian nanny and a female hippo.
 
Bornstein's second Emmy was for her role in the Amazon comedy/drama "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." She plays Susie Myerson, the manager of the budding stand-up comic Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan).

As a former Essentials, Jr. host, when Bill Hader won Best Actor in a comedy series, he became the first @tcm host of the night to win an Emmy. I hope to become the second later tonight. And I’m not going to let my lack of a nomination, or for that matter a category, stop me.

It's become apparent that Merritt Wever is never going to be comfortable making acceptance speeches at the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Never heard of 90% of these shows. Never want to!

Nonetheless, it's a new Golden Age for television. My favorite moments of the 2017-2018 season: Jaime Lannister's formidable army gets pulverized by Daenerys Targaryen's dragon Drogon and Dothraki cavalry in Episode 4 of the seventh season of "Game of Thrones."

I recorded this year's telecast but I haven't seen the whole thing and I don't think I want to.  The hosts were boring.  The banter between Maya Rudolph and Fred Armison (sp.?) was plain dreadful.  There's all the patting-on-the-back for diversity and guess who gets the bulk of the night's awards:  white people.  Yawn.  At least there was more diversity for the craft and guest performance awards earlier.

The high points for me were the wins for one of my all time favorite shows:  THE AMERICANS winning for writing and best actor.  Very well deserved.  I would have liked to see them win for best drama, though.  At least they weren't shut out.

Is Mrs. Maisel really that good?  I've never seen it.

Henry Winkler's comments about his "kids" can go to bed now was funny even if it took me a moment to get the joke.

There were WAY too many "Saturday Night Live" regulars (past and present) on the show, but it was produced by Lorne Michaels after all.

I did like co-host Michael Che's "Reparations Emmys" bit.

The other co-host, Colin Jost, was less memorable. But then again, his girlfriend is Scarlett Johansson, so I'll bet he's not complaining about anything.

I've only seen the pilot episode, which takes place in New York during the late 1950s. The series is a cross between "Gilmore Girls" and "Mad Men." What's different is there's a lot of Jewish humor. 

Rachel Brosnahan, whom I remember from the first season of NBC's "The Blacklist," is excellent at handling Amy Sherman-Palladino's trademark fast-paced dialogue. She reminds me of a young Kelly Bishop (the Tony Award-winning actress and dancer who played Lorelai Gilmore's mother on "Gilmore Girls").

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is a great-looking series and it's nicely cast, which makes it easy to see why it won eight overall Primetime Emmys. It also uses music from the era well.
