EMMYS 2017 Were All About Female-Fronted Stories and Women Making History!

Actors Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb Mc Laughlin on the Red Carpet at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday

"The things that make us different-those are our superpowers", she said, clutching her Emmy. Director of The Handmaid's Tale director Reed Morano also broke a the mold, being the first woman to win an Emmy for Best Directing in a Drama Series since 1995.

She also had a special message for her "LGBTQIA family". Not only did she give a sweet and attractive speech, but I was happy to see an actress with as much experience as Dowd has taking home an Emmy for the first time. He taught me everything about directing. And to my wife - I didn't get to thank my wife - you make my life worth living and you gave me two of the most attractive things that God has ever put on this planet. She wrote the critically acclaimed episode with series creator and star Aziz Ansari, and the story's gone on to become an audience favorite. "You guys are our life's blood, so I want to thank you so much".

Still, what fans heard was praised as one of the "blackest" speeches of the night.

The work of women in Hollywood was also prominently celebrated.

Waithe's wasn't the only Chicago-affiliated win of the night either.

It was a reunion for the trio who starred in the 1980 film "9 to 5", which told the story of a group of women who fight back against their chauvinistic boss.

Their wins ― eight each to "Big Little Lies" and "Handmaid's Tale" ― felt like a breath of fresh air in an awards ceremony that's long reflected its industry: largely white, or largely male. After receiving their Emmys, Waithe and Ansari were ushered to the side of the press room-rather than to the podium to answer questions about their historic achievement-where they waited for the Big Little Lies cast and crew to show up and complete a lengthy interview session.

In fact, it was a great year for women over a certain age.

Just before presenting the award for Best Supporting Actor alongside 9 to 5 co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, Parton used the category to reference her ample bosom and the importance of an effective brassiere.

Riz Ahmed's acting win was for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie for his work in The Night Of, a show which dives into a New York City murder case and the political and cultural influences and bigotry that effect the subsequent trial.
