Hurrah for The Handmaid’s Tale!
There’s a certain amount of genre content in the opening number, along with some pretty good, if painful, laffs.
Hurrah for San Junipero
As you might expect, CBS promoted Star Trek: Discovery at least once during the Awards (I heard it right before a commercial break).
On the other hand, not so good for Westworld and Stranger Things, both of which came away Emmy-less.
Really happy for both San Junipero, which was my top pick in the best dramatic presentation short form category for the Hugos, and for the cast and crew of The Handmaid’s Tale, particularly for Elisabeth Moss, who finally gets her long overdue Emmy.
