Updated Live! PRIMETIME EMMYS 2016 Winners List!

Updated Live! PRIMETIME EMMYS 2016 Winners List!

Considering the percentage of any given year we spend watching television, we may as well let ourselves get invested in the small screen Superbowl that is the Primetime Emmys. At the dawn of every autumn, we look back on the bounty of home entertainment that has kept us enrapt over the past 12 months—the melancholy comedies, political intrigue-laden dramas, and Ryan Murphy-produced head trips that we’ve grown to love or simply hate-watch.

So now that we’ve all committed to watching the ceremony, what can we expect from the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards? Well, with dramas like Orphan Black and The Americans up for major awards, we can expect these series’ frenzied fan bases to get ever the more impassioned about a possible win as the night carries on. With comedies like Silicon ValleyUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Black-ish up for their own prizes, we can expect a bevy of quotable speeches and GIF-worthy crowd moments. With Jimmy Kimmel hosting, we can expect his usual brand of deadpan pop culture snark, likely at the expense of Matt Damon. (Matt Damon’s probably got some reason to be at the Emmys, right?) All in all, our addictive personalities are sure to be satisfied by our most decadent vice, with every television show we know and love honored—or, hey, at least mercilessly mocked!—in one fell swoop.

And of course, we here at Nerdist will be live tweeting the whole thing. So hop over to Twitter to hear our take on the moment-to-moment of tonight’s Primetime Emmys, and check below for our live-updated winners list.
