Well considering there is no dramedy catagory, I think it fits perfectly fine in the drama category. For the most part, 60 minute shows are dramas and 30 minute shows are comedies.

Just one example: Big Little Lies was entertaining chic lit that laudably addressed domestic abuse and featured big Hollywood stars but in a few years the show and their performances will be forgotten. Much like Woods' and Hunter's 1989 performances. The former addressed alcoholism, the latter abortion rights. Both were hot topics of their time which resulted in Emmy wins. But seriously, does anyone remember either show or performance?
I think you don't get the Emmys (or for that matter, the Oscars). They're not about your personal preferences. You loved "Lonesome Dove". It didn't interest me in the least. The awards are not about what viewers like or watch -- that's the ratings. The Awards shows are about what the industry respects.

Elizabeth Moss was amazing in Handmaid's Tale as was Ann Dowd. I'm so happy they both won and that it won for best Drama.
Riz Amed won for Night Of and was the first Asian man to win an a lead actor category.
Sterling K Brown is great in This is Us and I wish that Ron Cephas Jones had won for his role as William. That man made me cry every time he was on the screen. He's just brilliant.
I was pretty happy House of Cards and the Crown didn't win for everything...I just wish the Emmy's would shake up the comedy category and give the award to Silicon Valley, Black-ish, Master of None or Atlanta. Silicon Valley and Black-ish are so underrated.
I hear a lot of people say they are obsessed with The Crown but I haven't watched. House of Cards has won enough.

It's on my To-watch list but I never get around to it. House of Cards bored me to tears.

Agreed. Love the thanksgiving episode in master of none. Though i never pay attention to comedy categoroes since the best ones on tv (its always sunny in philadelphia and broad city) have never been nominated.

Sterling Brown was really good in this is us and agree with Ron cepas jones...he was awesome as william!!


Alexis Bledel also won for Handmaids and i also thought she was brilliant....never knew Rory Gilmore could act that well

It has won 7 Emmys, but mostly on the creative side (casting, cinematography,sound mixing, etc). It also won for outstanding directing in it's first season.

I personally loved War and Remembrance (except for one casting issue) and loved the book. I thought Lonesome Dove was a bore. It's all matter of personal preference for what one chooses for entertainment.

I used to watch award shows but they have become a platform for people to bash and make their personal political statements.

TV, music and movies are a way to escape the drama of real life but they keep bringing it all back to what is happening in this country and the world. NEWS FLASH We already know and have formed our own opinions and we don't care what you think.

The occasional jab at our elected is fun but when they go on and on it gets lame.

I didn't see it either, but I heard that Sean Spicer made an appearance. Why? Might have been relevant if Melissa McCarthy was on stage with him doing her impersonation, but maybe he doesn't have much of a sense of humor.
