2015 Emmy review and winners list


Ok, let’s get over this, Andy Samberg was bad, not just bad, but really bad. All I wanted was Amy Poehler and Tina Fey back! The opening song was pretty funny, but after that, nope.

Those are the major awards, but lets not forget Outstanding Structured Reality Program  (Shark Tank) and Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program (Deadliest Catch) are categories too!

But I want get on to something else, Tracy Morgan; OMG, when he came out and gave his speech, I won’t lie, I cried! After the crash and recovery he went through, just to be on the stage. WOW!

You can watch his speech here.

Overall, I thought it was a good Emmys. Take back what Samberg messed up, it could have been great. When I started watching I wanted Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to take over, but now I am all
Final thoughts, Broadcast TV, you got your rear end handed to you! 11 of the major awards went to Streaming or Cable.  Either learn to stream or get cable with it!
