Emmys 2016: 20 Best, Worst and Most WTF Moments

From Jimmy Kimmel’s Trump jokes to ‘Game of Thrones’ making history — the good, the bad and the ugly of 68th annual Emmy Awards

For its 68th go-round, the Primetime Emmy Awards offered some surprises (who saw those wins for Orphan Black and Mr. Robot coming?!?) — though the biggest shock was that, under the auspices of host Jimmy Kimmel, the telecast was a tight, joke-packed show that actually had the audacity to end early. Perhaps the Emmy voters (and losers) were simply burnt out on the awards: As Randall Park and Constance Wu of Fresh Off the Boat joked, last night's show was actually the third Emmys ceremony held this year, after two separate events for the Creative Arts Emmys earlier in the week. ("So I guess that means Fresh Off the Boat will get our award on the fourth night?" Park quipped; his co-star shot back, "Let it go, Randall." Maybe next year, y'all.)

Still, Sunday's gala was packed with plenty of good, bad, and simply bizarre moments. From a simply meh opening skit to the best acceptance speeches, our picks for the good, the best, worst and most head-scratchingly WTF of the 2016 Emmy Awards.
