ICYMI: Funny Women Slayed The Emmys

Ok so in case you were under a rock last night, the Emmys were 100% about the women this year. Veep took home the award for best comedy series and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won for best actress in a comedy, Tatiana Maslany won for best actress in a drama but she’s hilarious so we’re counting it as a win for funny ladies, Jill Soloway took home the comedy directing honors, and Tina and Amy had to split an award. Plus as an extra bonus, #EmmysAren’tAsWhiteAsTheyUsedToBe and that’s a good thing for errybody.

We put together a few of our favorite moments from the comedy queens who won the night, whether they took home a statue or not. Feeling like a bunch of proud younger sisters right now, tbh.


Amy and Tina were two halves of the same heart as always:


Tatiana Maslany did the world’s sweetest interview:


Julia Louis-Dreyfus took us from laughing at her amazing social satire to ugly crying for her loss in RECORD time:


And Ellie Kemper told the story of a fight between a man and a bus:

It’s Impossible To Pick A Favorite Moment From Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Episode of “SNL”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live and as expected, she was perfection. It’s pretty impossible for us to pick a favorite sketch. Obviously, we were huge fans of her reprising her role as Seinfeld’s Elaine Benes for the cold open:

There was also this glorious gem where Julia played an emotional housewife trying to break off her affair with the socially inept pool boy:

We also still can’t get over Julia and Kate playing aliens in this bizarre sketch about a Match.com event.

Our queen did not disappoint – we’ll be obsessing over these videos for the rest of the week, thanks!
