emmys 2017 winners

From rolling Spicers and backup-dancing handmaids to Dolly Parton dropping vibrator jokes and Elizabeth Moss dropping f-bombs, the 69th Annual Primetime Emmys happened Sunday night.

In between the tsunami of Donald Trump jokes (which, if you had it as a rule in your Emmys drinking game, you would’ve passed out about 10 minutes deep into the show) and introspective self-deprecation-with-a-wink platitudes, show ringmaster Stephen Colbert was able to corral the show together enough to give out some awards.
