The very best thing about this year's Primetime Emmy Awards was this: New talents with a distinctive voice, especially talents of color, were honored. From Donald Glover taking a double bow for acting and directing Atlanta, to Hulu making streaming history with multiple awards for The Handmaid's Tale (pictured above) to Lena Waithe of Master of None becoming the first African American woman to win an Emmy for writing a comedy series, it was a marvelous showcase. Also great: Sterling K. Brown following up his win last year for The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story with a win this year as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for This Is Us. His acceptance speech, despite being cut off by the orchestra, was another highlight.
