The Best Tweets About the 73rd Annual Emmy Awards
The internet probably wasn’t invented to allow people a way to showcase their hilarity, but hoo boy, are we happy they do. One of the best things about watching a live event like the Emmy Awards is waiting to see some of the funniest takes from random people all over the world.
Sometimes it can be a pain to weed through all the unfunny stuff to find the diamonds in the rough. That’s why we’ve compiled some of the best tweets about the 2021 Emmys.
‘Wandavision’ fans weren’t happy with Kathryn Hahn’s Emmy loss
Kathryn Hahn was up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series, Movie, or Anthology but didn’t take home the statue. Julianne Nicholson won for her role in Mare of Easttown, and Wandavision fans were not here for it.
Evan Peters won, but not for a Ryan Murphy project
Peters took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series, Movie, or Anthology for his role in HBO’s Mare of Easttown. This is shocking only because Ryan Murphy is not attached to this project, and Peters is a frequent star in his projects.
Rita Wilson rapped, and it was deeply uncomfortable for most of us watching
This year’s Emmys started off promising with an upbeat parody of the late Biz Markie’s ‘Just a Friend.’ It was all fun and games until Rita Wilson joined in.
Could this be a sign of the impending apocalypse? Probably not, but some people thought there was a chance.
April LaValle said what we were all thinking
Sometimes it’s tough to watch your favorites lose, but the world would be a boring place if everyone liked the same thing. However, we can’t deny that we totally get where LaValle is coming from here.
The confusion over ‘Hamilton’ winning an Emmy
Nobody is saying Hamilton isn’t great. We are saying that it’s really not television just because they filmed the musical at one point and aired it on TV. We were not alone in this thought which is good to know.
‘Ted Lasso’ was one of the night’s big winners
It is true that if you give a show a title with the word “lasso” in it, people might expect there to be some sort of cowboy theme to it. If that’s what you’re looking for, Ted Lasso is not the answer. This Twitter user was under the impression there would be “rustling.” There is no rustling in the series.
There’s the Emmys, and then there’s ‘the Emmys’
Roland Emmerich and Noah Emmerich probably didn’t plan to end up in a conversation about the 2021 Emmy Awards, but here we are. We have to admit, this guy’s nickname for them is growing on us.
