Emmy Awards 2016

68th Annual Emmy Awards 2016 took place with great glamour and zeal at the Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater. Emmy MC and Jimmy Kimmel nearly nailed the show with the superb hosting. Theme of the Emmy Awards was the culture ubiquity of television. Game of Thrones was crowned the limelight of the show as it broke all the records for the higher number of Emmy Awards won by any fictional series. It won the outstanding drama series and in total it won 38 awards, beating Frasier’s previous record of 37.

Dame Maggie won an Emmy for the second time in her role of Violet Crawley. However, this year too, she did not attend the ceremony. On the other hand, BBC One’s Sherlock was named best made for TV movie for its special episode The Abominable Bride. Kate McKinnon won her first Emmy for her work on Saturday Night Live. It came as a great surprise because she wasn’t able to make her speech at all.

Indian Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra also attended the ceremony mostly because of her series Quantico. The show also highlighted that how Asian-American representation is about to begin on the television. This was announced by Alan Yang and Aziz Ansari, the co-creators of Netflix’s Master of None. Millions of Asian Americans in the country, which want to have more theatrical and television representation. All in all, the American presidential candidate, Donald trump was mocked during the entire show. It was a great ceremonial event.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
