Presentation

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on September 17, 2017, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and telecasted by CBS. The show was hosted by Stephen Colbert, who opened the ceremony with a song-and-dance number and a monologue that lampooned the state of the world under President Donald Trump, which, as described by The New York Times set an anti-Trump tone for the rest of the event. Many of the further presentations and host commentary continued jokes aimed towards Trump, along with winners’ speeches criticizing the President and standing behind diversity in the television field. Sean Spicer performed a skit that parodied Melissa McCarthy’s parody of him from Saturday Night Live.

The show drew an estimated 11.4 million viewers, on par with the previous ceremony in last year, but remaining one of the least-watched Emmy presentations to date. Analysts believed that this was attributed to the more political tone of the ceremonies, as well as younger audiences preferring to watch clips or summaries than the entire event.

In Memoriam

Broadway actor Christopher Jackson performed Stevie Wonder’s “As” as television industry personalities who had died in the past year were shown.
