“It wasn’t perfect, but it was a good show,” says Willa Paskin. “Samberg’s monologue may not have played great in the room, but was funny, sharp and goofy, like Samberg. (See, in particular, his joke that Arnold Schwarzenegger should really host To Catch a Predator.) As Bob Odenkirk joked in the pre-taped bit, being an Emmy host requires Samberg to ’get out there and tell some culturally relevant but not too edgy jokes.’ But Samberg slowly worked his way up to some edge, starting by picking on books—‘suck it books’—before turning to race and diversity, an arc that ultimately mirrored the shape of the evening, which climaxed with Viola Davis’s powerful speech on the same subject.” PLUS: Samberg showed how to host an awards show, but it really did look like Samberg bombed in the room, Samberg seemed miscast for the role, Samberg rolled through the show with a minimum of friction and a great deal of fun, Game of Thrones’ victory was sort of a karmic balancing, Game of Thrones makes history by picking up the most-ever Emmys in one year, watch Samberg’s Peak TV opening, what exactly does a Game of Thrones win mean?, the Emmys gave a middle finger to spoiler culture, the biggest snubs and surprises (besides Amy Poehler), did new Emmy rules give Game of Thrones a boost?, HBO was given a heads up that Samberg would give out his HBO Now log in, Veep breaks Modern Family’s five-year Emmy streak, Matt LeBlanc flips off Jimmy Kimmel, why couldn’t Mad Men‘s women win awards, the best part of Viola Davis’ victory was her powerful speech, why Jon Hamm climbed on stage, and how Tracy Morgan’s surprise stayed a secret.
