With Wins for Zendaya, ‘Succession,’ and Jerrod Carmichael, the 2022 Emmys Mostly Got It Right

There’s a good chance you didn’t realize the Emmy Awards aired on Mondays, as the NBC television awards show has shifted from its typical Sunday night time slot so as not to impede the return of Night Football. Sunday (not a joke). While a majority of the awards are pretty bland (Ted Lasso and Heir take home the top awards), the Emmys won a few surprises. Here are a few — good or bad — notable moments from the TV show.

Hard start

Despite calling television “the most successful broadcast medium in the world,” the opening to the 2022 Emmy Awards turned into a dance, scored by the opening theme to some of the most rewarding shows. most missed on television, including Friend, The Brady Bunch, Laws and orders, Strange thingsand Game of Thrones, complete with host Kenan Thompson in a Targaryen wig. But overall, the opening feels out of place and, worse, endless, lasting somewhere north for five minutes.

Despite that push through, the show opted for more party-focused tunes as it continued, including songs by DJ Zedd and the comedian’s hit-or-miss intro and ending. Sam Jay. In fact, the Emmys feel more akin to the often looser and more engaging Golden Globes shows than the serious Emmys broadcasts of the past.

And speaking of things that didn’t work, Jimmy Kimmel continued to lay down and take his place on stage while Quinta Brunson received her first Emmy award probably not with malice (she stated behind the scenes it doesn’t bother her — it also reserves the right to change her mind) but a miscalculation nonetheless. Give the woman her space.

Kenan’s Stalwart Host Skills

Kenan Thompson is one of television’s most established presences — having loved our screens for decades (thanks to All and Kenan & Kel, who later delivered a stunning nostalgia hit), and tonight’s performance allows him to show off what makes him so great. Funny, entertaining, sweet and effective, Kenan has shown why he’s always dependable and well-suited to something as all-encompassing as hosting. Here’s hoping this is the start of many additional gigs. But the most interesting thing of the night must be the play of the accountants Ernst & Young. Planned or unplanned, no one wants to hear from them, and it’s good for Kenan to appropriately acknowledge it.

Legendary, with rewards

In what was not only the best speech of the evening but perhaps one of the best in Emmy history, Abbott Elementary School star Sheryl Lee Ralph accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy by passionately singing (she originated the role of Deena Jones in the opening ceremony). Dream girls Broadway run) and then went on to talk about the support system in her life. Honestly, words don’t do justice, so you’d better experience (or re-experience) it.
