The 68th Annual Emmy Awards, the most prestigious award giving body for television shows, just ended. At least, the Primetime Emmys just did.
2016 seems more like a repeat of last year. Once again, HBO won the night as “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” dominated the awards. Although “Veep” did not win as much as the other show, it bagged one of the highest awards through Julia Louis-Dreyfus who won the best actress in a comedy series award.
The night was truly filled with red carpet elegance and some hilarious quips during the show.
Now that it ended, we know who gets to enjoy a full year of bragging rights.
