Our minds were blown before the show even began, as host Cat Deeley casually mentioned that the carpet was being covered by a drone, a first in awards show history — because we're living in the future where such things are no big deal. (Not to sound panicky, but isn't this how I, Robot started?)
After intro'ing the drone — which we're still not totally OK with — SYTYCD host Cat Deeley set her sights on DWTS host Tom Bergeron, saying it was "deliberate" that he was seated in the back. We'd love to watch these two duke it out, American Gladiators-style, but there's one problem: Who would host it?
BETTER BLEEP SAUL
Better Call Saul's Jonathan Banks, accepting the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, scored his own Kanye moment with the first official bleep of the night. And in case you're wondering what he said to co-star Bob Odenkirk: "You’re a fine mother f–ing actor."
THAT'S A MOUTHFUL
Cat Deeley may be in it for the "free booze," but Silicon Valley's TJ Miller is more of a buffet kind of guy. "I thought I was going to lose, so I ate a lot," he said, still swallowing, while accepting the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
WHO'S THE REAL WINNER HERE?
There's so much we could say about this lip lock between James Corden and Allison Janney, winner of Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series… but we think we'll just let the photo speak for itself.
BRADLEY WHITFORD: MANKIND'S LAST HOPE
Not to harp on the issue, but when the robots do eventually take over — and they will! — at least we know Bradley Whitford will be fighting the good fight. "Don't do the drones," he urged Amazon while accepting the award for Best Guest Performer in a Comedy Series. "I don't think that's a good idea."
"Lotta clips from Dads in the package," Seth MacFarlane quipped while accepting the LOUIS XIII Genius Award, proving he can take it just as well as he can dish it out. (But seriously, though, we'd be OK if the world collectively agreed never to mention Dads ever again.)
WAIT, AMY SCHUMER'S NOT A VIRGIN?
Maybe it's a good thing Amy Schumer wasn't present to accept the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series after Angie Harmon introduced the nominees as being "all the way from a virgin to Amy Schumer."
TARAJI'S COOKIE MOMENT
During her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Drama Series, Empire's Taraji P. Henson had a special message for Terrence Howard — and his accountant: "I fought for you. You owe me five percent of your money."
