On Sunday night, Elisabeth Moss won big at the Emmys, taking home an award for outstanding-lead actress in a drama series just moments before she and the rest of the cast took the stage again when The Handmaid's Tale won best-drama series.
After losing to John Oliver, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel drank their sorrows, and (in good natured late night fashion) took digs at Oliver and his show. It featured some of our favorite TV shows, including "This Is Us", "Veep", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and "The Handmaid's Tale".

"I'm glad I was able to make history, but that's not what I was trying to do. They get to have an interrogation". And I remember thinking as I was standing there alone that this was it.
