GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – The 68th Emmy Award show on My ABC WOTV4 was filled with glitz, glamour, and some seriously awesome television shows. This year was one for the books, there was not one “throw away” category, show, or actor. All the winners were extremely gracious (and talented!). Here are some of our favorite moments.

Biggest wins:

Game of Thrones made history by winning it’s 106th Emmy! They closed the show by taking home ‘Best Drama’. This team seems so close and dedicated to their work, can’t wait to see what they do next.

Kate McKinnon won ‘Outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series’ for her work on SNL. This funny chick melted all our hearts with her genuine surprise and gratitude.

The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story swept the night and took home a ton of awards. In that group were some interesting actors, including Sterling K. Brown, a Stanford alum and fabulous actor who received a standing ovation for his win.

Biggest moments:

Jimmy Kimmel cared so much about the crowd, that his mom made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone! Most of the sandwiches were delivered by the kids from Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’. Kevin Spacey and Sophia Vergara are just a couple of the actors who indulged in this brown bag treat.

Last night was a big moment for the transgender community. Laverne Cox, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jill Soloway all spoke on the issue after ‘Transparent’ took home two Emmys.

Tori Kelly’s tribute to the people we lost this past year was absolutely breathtaking. I know it gave us chills! Beautiful and soulful song to honor those we’ve lost.

Matt Damon came out on stage to poke a little fun at Jimmy Kimmel. He chomped on an apple, made us laugh, and then sauntered off stage. We aren’t made about it!

Fabulous fashions:

In my opinion, Kerry Washington stole the show. Her baby bump, curly hair, and cutout gown was showstopping! Love her work on My ABC WOTV4’s Scandal, but we are also obsessed with this red carpet look.

Priyanka Chopra always looks gorgeous, but she was owning the Emmy’s red carpet with her flowy scarlet dress!

At 5’1 we don’t often see Michigan native, Kristen Bell, in ball gowns. However, this choice fit her like a glove and she looked absolutely stunning while presenting.

Other looks we loved! My fave out of this group? Viola Davis from My ABC WOTV4’s How to Get Away with Murder stunned in a hot pink gown, she even said her famous tagline.
