The 2016 Emmys Felt Like Watching Change in Real Time


After last year’s Emmys wins for Regina King, Viola Davis, and Uzo Aduba, many wondered if the show’s unusual recognition of actors of color was a one-off. If this year’s awards were any indication, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The show felt surprisingly in tune with television in 2016, and with where it’s headed. On this week’s episode of the Vulture TV Podcast, we talk about the surprises on Sunday night, the feeling of spontaneity, and the biggest snub of all.
