EmmysWritten By: Peter Huyhn

The 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards was held at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California last Sunday September 20, 2015. The awards show was broadcasting nationwide by Fox. Andy Samberg hosted the show for the first time. He is a well-known actor, and comedian appeared on Saturday Night Live. This talented actor did a great job hosting a show with his unlimited jokes, and his charming big smile.

Emmy has been a biggest night of Television for a long time where all of the greatest TV programming, producers, directors, actors, and actresses gather together to celebrate the best TV programming of the year.

For this year 2015, there are many great shows on air. It has been a totally challenge to pick one winner for each category. Each show has its own interesting aspect and features. I watched the whole show and it was totally entertaining for a chilling Sunday night. The winner for each category is not so surprising to me, and I think they totally deserved an Emmy.
