But in the end, I found it strangely fitting to see Ailes' face in the mix-a static and already outmoded image from TV's past-in the middle of an awards show dedicated to honoring so many vibrant and impassioned actors and creators. Although you wouldn't know it by looking at her, Elisabeth Moss's Emmys outfit had a secret message written on it.
Elizabeth Moss and Ann Down won Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama.
There were some fabulous sartorial statements at this year's Emmy Awards.
Donald Glover won outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, and outstanding directing for a comedy series.

Big Little Lies tied with The Handmaid's Tale that also won eight Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss), Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series. A lot of people were expecting Chrissy Metz to win the Emmy in this category for her work on "This Is Us", which might be why Dowd was so surprised to win.
Considering it's the right shoe, it appears to be the second word in a two letter phrase, i.e. '- off'.
Sterling Brown took home the Emmy for his work as Randall Pearson in the NBC series This Is Us. It took the prize for best drama television series. Netflix has yet to grab a statuette for best comedy or drama, or best actor/actress in either genre. The reality that emerged in November cast new light on the project: instead of articulating people's anxieties about what could have been, the show became an exaggerated mirror many viewers' daily reality. "And we're here to say what a wonderful journey our partners at Hulu are fearless".
HBO's "Big Little Lies" - exploring the dark secrets of three suburban mothers - also had a big night, winning for best limited series and landing a best actress prize in a limited series or movie for first-time Emmy victor Nicole Kidman. Best Writing in a Comedy went to Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe for Master of None's terrific "Thanksgiving", a coming-of-age story centered on a gay woman of color. This is something of a comeback for the 41-year-old actress, who previously starred as Felicity Porter in Felicity from 1998 to 2002, for which she won a Golden Globe in 1999. The Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series award went to Riz Ahmed for The Night Of.
"This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period, both in person and around the world", Spicer said.
