Television shows always bring about a series of emotions with every episode that premieres weekly or daily. One minute it’s all laughs and romance, and the next you’re at the edge of your seat―this’ll go on until the season ends.
It’s the same case with the Primetime Emmys but leaning more on giving you light entertainment―on and off-screen―while waiting for the winners. So we gathered some moments from the show (and on social media) that will hopefully brighten up your mood on this slow Monday.
America Ferrera reminds Giuliana Rancic of Ugly Betty
Aside from The TV Academy’s blooper, Giuliana Rancic also committed a red carpet mistake while interviewing Superstore actress America Ferrera. Apparently, Giuliana told America, “As far as your career, this show, Superstore, is doing so well. NBC is so excited about it, it’s actually leading Thursday night―which, if you remember, Friends held that honor for a really long time. How does that feel?”
America clapped back by reminding the host about her other hit show: Ugly Betty. Bravo!
Amy Schumer gives a shoutout to her fave tampon brand
Ever the candid woman, Amy Schumer didn’t waste any time in making a statement on the red carpet. By that, we mean with her Vivienne Westwood dress, Tom Ford shoes, and tampon of choice, all of which she gave shoutout to. The New York Times even rode along the joke with this tweet:
Amy Schumer is wearing a Vivienne Westwood dress, Tom Ford shoes and an OB tampon.

The Stranger Things kids being adorable
Whether you’re on the Stranger Things hype train or not, you can’t deny how cute Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, and Caleb McLaughlin were during the Emmys. First was their red carpet walk…
Next was them delivering peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the audience while on bikes.
And lastly, this unseen footage of them performing Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” during the pre-show.
Matt Damon burning Jimmy Kimmel
Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel was nominated for Outstanding Variety Talk Series but sadly lost to John Oliver. And to add salt to the wound, Matt Damon appeared and engaged in a comedic discourse to poke fun at his loss.
Good thing Jimmy was a good sport. Tina Fey reacting to Bill Cosby Of course, when you have a a host like Jimmy, he’ll surely stir the crowd with his brand of humor. During one of his spiels, he jokingly calls out Bill Cosby to the stage. Everyone was obviously shocked by it, but Tina Fey summed it all up with her reaction.
Tatiana Maslany finally won an Emmy
After four seasons of playing 11 different roles, Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany finally snagged an Outstanding Lead Actress award. It’s about time she got that award because doing 12 roles per season isn’t a joke. Congrats!
Leslie Jones wants to protect her Twitter account
Leslie Jones has been having a tough time on social media recently―from being thrown racial slurs to hackers leaking her nude photos. But that didn’t stop her from joking about it, of course. Plus, it’s the best way to slam all of her haters.
Ladies can’t get enough of Kit Harrington
The Game of Thrones team was on a roll as they broke the record for most number of primetime awards. But aside from that, everyone’s eyes were on Kit Harrington. Most especially when he took the stage with Adam Samberg, where we saw a lighter side of the actor.
