Emmys 2016 – All the winners & the highlights

Last night Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 68th Emmy awards.

It was a record breaking night, as Game of Thrones’ 3 Emmy wins means that the show has now become the most awarded show in Emmy History. With 38 statuettes in total, it has surpassed Frasier’s, 12 year, record, of 37 Emmys.

Game of Thrones wasn’t the biggest winner on the night though – that honour went to the brilliant “The People vs O.J. Simpson”

Below are some of my highlights of the night.

Getting to the Emmys can be stressful – Jimmy needed all of the help he could get

Opening Monologues can be tough to get right but Jimmy nailed it and set the mood for the night.

One of my favourite ‘feuds’ in Hollywood is the one between Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel. It continued to play out on the Emmy stage

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss is one of the most talented comedic actresses. You could say she is the Queen of Comedy. Last night she was once again recognised for her talent, winning the Best Actress – Comedy. Her speech was both hilarious – when talking about the current political situation, and moving when dedicating the win to her late father.

Sarah Paulson’s portrayal of Marcia Clarke, in the “People vs OJ Simpson”, was outstanding. She was recognised for it last night. My favourite part of her speech was her acknowledgement of the real Marcia Clarke, who she brought as her +1

Australian Ben Mendelson wasn’t at the ceremony but he won an Emmy for Best supporting actor in a Drama series

And finally, a highlight that didn’t make it to TV.  “Stranger Things” is the show everyone’s ‘bingeing’ on at the moment. Everyone has fallen for the cast. During the show they helped Jimmy give out sandwiches to the audience but before the show they entertained the masses with their Uptown Funk performance.

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
