Best: Tracee Ellis Ross' Exuberant Acceptance Speech

We would've been happy with just about any winner in the Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Comedy category – from the acidic, hilarious Julia Louis Dreyfus on Veep (who apparently moonlights as an awards-show D.J.) to Issa Rae's star-making turn on Insecure – but first-time nominee Tracee Ellis Ross took the trophy for her role on ABC's Black-ish. Her wonderful acceptance speech acknowledged Hollywood's lack of diversity, while providing hope that things won't always be that way. "This is for all the women, women of color, and colorful people," she said, "whose stories, ideas, thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. It is an honor … to show the magic and the beauty and the sameness of a story and stories that are outside where the industry usually looks.”
