Variety TV Critics Debate Sean Spicer, Stephen Colbert and More From Emmys 2017

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Handmaid’s Tale” conquered, Stephen Colbert hosted, “Saturday Night Live” felt relevant again and Sean Spicer showed up. Variety’s TV critics debate the highs and lows of Sept. 17’s three-hour celebration of television.

Sonia Saraiya: I can’t remember the last time an awards show made me this happy. I might be in the minority. There were definitely elements of Sunday night that could have used a bit of polish: The show announcer either needed better direction or had never seen the Emmys before, and I don’t care if run of show is a skosh late — they really did not need to play off Sterling K. Brown’s acceptance speech. But overall, I felt like it was a joyful expression of what we can be proudest of about TV right now.

Maureen Ryan: It was a strange evening, and certainly there were moments that contained extra rations of the obliviousness or self-regard that we »

Rob Sheffield on Emmys 2017: The Good, the Bad and the Sean Spicer Suck-Up

18 September 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"This is TV's highest honor – us celebrating us," Stephen Colbert announced at the start of the 2017 Emmy Awards. "Tonight, we binge ourselves." It was a joke about smug self-congratulation probably intended to sound more ironic than it did. The Emmy ceremony, as always, was a night of the television world celebrating itself as the best Western civilization has to offer, not to mention an all-around swell bunch of people. The ego in the room was a marvel to behold – even when Seth MacFarlane wasn't onscreen. Colbert did his best with his Trump gags, »

Emmys 2017: Everything You Didn’t See on TV

18 September 2017 6:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes, what makes Hollywood so confusing but also fascinating is how simultaneously surreal and mundane it can be, and how those two realities can coexist in such tight juxtaposition. Case in point: this year’s Emmy Awards, where one minute Sean Spicer turns up as a surprise guest on stage, eliciting a collective gasp in the audience, and the next, Keri Russell gallops into the bathroom, hiking up the hem of her dress so as not to get it dirty while waiting for an empty stall, and exclaims to nobody in particular, “Holy moly, this is nuts!”

What Russell was referring to is anybody’s guess — perhaps just the overwhelming stimuli present at any awards show — but there were a few not-televised, behind-the-scenes moments that might have been deemed “nuts” by any account.

When Spicer first popped onstage during host Stephen Colbert’s opening monologue, some Emmy guests rolled their eyes, a »

Emmys: John Oliver Thanks Oprah Winfrey for Variety Talk Series Win

17 September 2017 7:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” won the Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding variety talk series on Sunday night.

The weekly series was renewed earlier this week by HBO in a deal that keeps the “Daily Show” alum at the premium service through 2020.

Oliver, who also won for writing for a variety series earlier in the night, took the stage again to thank executive producer Liz Stanton, showrunner Tim Carvell, HBO, his wife, and … Oprah Winfrey.

“I met Oprah once. It was like meeting the queen, only much, much better,” Oliver quipped.

He also thanked the whole staff, who “got so wasted after last year’s award ceremony that they turned up to Universal Studios, either hungover or actively drunk, and threw up on roller coasters,” he said.

“So Universal Studios, if there is someone vomiting on the Harry Potter ride tomorrow, they work for us. We have a show on Sunday. Please »

The Emmys kicked off with a song-and-dance number by host Stephen Colbert who quickly turned the 2017 Emmy Awards into a roast of, well, President Donald Trump.

The politically-infused monologue was right in Colbert’s sweet spot, and even featured a surprise cameo from Sean Spicer, who was introduced by the host as “Melissa McCarthy.”

Here are Stephen Colbert’s 10 best jokes from his Emmys monologue…

1. Can you feel it? This room is crackling with the collective energy of people who, for the past 48 hours, have consumed nothing but distilled water and Crest Whitestrips.

2. If you do win, don’t forget to thank everyone who helped you get up here — namely, “Game of Thrones” for not being eligible.

3. Personally, I have to take a moment here to thank CBS chairman Leslie Moonves. I literally have to thank him. It’s in my contract.

4. These days, everybody loves streaming video — just ask Ted Cruz. But »
