2015 Emmy Awards Show’s Outstanding Moments

The 2015 Emmy Awards participants didn’t just sizzle on the red carpet. For those who didn’t wilt from the heat, the show itself gave them a chance to shine, and the most memorable stars ranged from comedians to writers, reported Vogue.

Andy Samberg earns the second spot after Sofia when it comes to standing out in the Emmy Awards history books. He combined music with a monologue to entertain and charm.

Jill Soloway won over the tough crowd with her acceptance speech. The creator of Transparent expressed her appreciation to Goddess and moppa, the latter of whom inspired her show. And Soloway, who gets third place for most memorable Emmy Award 2015 moment, took time to express her concern that 32 states remain where discrimination against a transgender individual is legal.

“We don’t have a trans tipping point. We have a trans civil-rights problem.”

Places four and five go to Jeffrey Tambor and Tony Hale. Those winners of the best actor and best supporting actor earned sincere applause from the crowd for their work and their acceptance speeches.

And when it comes to acceptance speeches, Julia Louis-Dreyfus got sixth place for the Emmy Awards 2015’s most memorable moment, as well as the trophy for best actress in a comedy award.

While this was the fourth year sequentially in which Julia took home that trophy, she didn’t disappoint with her wit and warmth.

“What an honor it is for you to honor me… No, wait, no, I’m so sorry, Donald Trump said that. It’s getting trickier and trickier to satirize his stuff.”

And then there’s James Corden. Faced with the almost impossible challenge of making an introduction to the accountants of Ernest & Young, he deserves seventh place in the list of the evening’s memorable moments for making the audience both laugh and applaud.

Although the “In Memoriam” segment had some disappointments, several poignant farewells to shows stood out to give that segment eighth place, including Jon Stewart and Mad Men.

And the final most memorable moment for the 2015 Emmy Awards was earned by Viola Davis’ acceptance speech, when she became the first African-American woman to take home the trophy for best actress in a drama.

“The only thing that separated women of color from anyone else is opportunity,” said Davis. “You cannot win Emmys for roles that simply aren’t there.”
