Before we go over the Emmy awards of note, I have to admit Michael Che and Colin Jost hosted a fun awards show that focused less on politics and more on the funny side of entertainment, which was evident with all the comedians that presented awards. There were some fun moments, such as the proposal, and they honored everyone that passed away over the past year, All in all, it was a good show and I hope Che and Jost come back for a second turn as hosts.
Back to the awards. Last night, the stars of the small screen were out to pat themselves on their backs for their hard work. Here are some of the awards that made everyone in my circle go nutty.

As Game of Thrones won the big award of the night, George R.R. Martin gave us a little insight about what he wanted for the show.
“We could’ve gone 11, 12, 13 seasons,” George R. R. Martin told Variety at the Prime time Emmys.
“David and Dan have been saying for like five seasons that seven seasons is all they would go,” the “Game of Thrones” author continued.
“I know all of the actors, as great as they are, all the actors are anxious to get on and play other roles,” Martin said. “They don’t want to spend their entire lives playing one role and that’s fine, that’s great, we had such an amazing cast.”
What was interesting about the interview was that they mentioned the five prequels in development. Apparently, these prequels will range from a show being only a 100 years prior to the current story line and some are far older. Interesting.
One last thing, we have some news about the upcoming season of Star Trek: Discovery:
Well, that’s it for me.
Have a great day!
