The 2018 Emmy Awards telecast aired last night on NBC. The biggest buzz of the evening occurred when director Glenn Weiss dropped to one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Jan during his acceptance speech.

Comedic actress Tiffany Haddish, who won an Emmy award for hosting Saturday Night Live, wore a custom frock featuring the colors of the Eritrean flag. Her father is Eritrean.

Comedienne Leslie Jones (pictured top right) also trended on social media for her ecstatic reaction to actress Regina King, pictured, winning an Emmy in a limited series or movie for Seven Seconds. King was the first non-white actor to win last night.

And, of course, liberal awards shows wouldn't be news worthy if they weren't political.

Comedic actress Jenifer Lewis wore Nike gear to show support for activist Colin Kaepernick. And Saturday Night Live comic Michael Che sparked debate when he handed out awards to legendary Black actors in a skit titled "Reparation Emmys".

Che criticized the Emmy Awards' 70-year history of overlooking Black actors for Caucasian actors.

Longtime Emmy viewers, who remember when Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) couldn't win an Emmy to save her life, were disturbed to see the likes of Tiffany Haddish walk away with a coveted trophy.

Many accused the Emmys of handing out token awards to placate people of color and social justice warriors (SJWs) on social media.

    I’m happy for all the beautiful black folks, especially the winners.??

    I’m not to thrilled about the outfits most of the people wore to the Emmy’s period.

    Tiffany looks like a loud A hole as usually in that ugly ass dress.

    Hey I see the Fonze won an Emmy!!! ????

  • SpillyNillie

    Love Jennifer Lewis ... Everyone looks nice

  • the guest

    Leslie looks beautiful. She's found her look in the stylized power suit. I don't get the hype over Tiffany Haddish at all, love how her people are sneak privileging her as an exotical with her father's heritage, and it's working to her advantage.

    LOVE Jenifer Lewis Nike statement.

  • Scromes1212

    You got to be kidding smh

  • HelloToni

    Thank you! They look great! Love them.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I love their LOVE!!! Saw them on the Black Love documentary and just the way he praises her and the way she admires him is so refreshing...

  • Yardgirl

    Everyone looked nice. I LOVED Leslie's suit and Yara and her look-a-like mom are just beautiful!!

  • Victorious82

    But Tiffany wasn’t even funny on SNL when she hosted. They just giving her and Cardi B awards for cooning.

  • Yardgirl

    I love it!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    1. Sterling Brown and his wife are beautiful. Best dressed IMO.

    2. Issa Rae looked cute.

    3. Rocsi Diaz...who is she sleeping with? Idc what anyone says, she is the WORST interviewer ever. The fact that she has managed to maintain a career and get invites to events like this, is a testament to her P management.

  • Rere

    I really don't think Tiffany is funny, at all!!!!

  • Faithz

    Cute couple, he reminds me of
    D Wade for some reason.

  • oshh16

    Taraji's dress was very pretty and I liked Yara's as well.

  • Scromes1212

    I don't understand why people have so much hate for Tiffany but they love Leslie? If you watch her on snl and in movies they do the same type of comedy smh she always on Snl skits and in commercials begging white dude to smash and being loud and over the top. It seems like people root for Leslie cause they feel sorry for her or something smh

  • FukkFolks2018

    Tiffany dress would have been a go if not for the BLACK Fredrick of Hollywood ass looking shoes. All them colors in that dress and you wear black stripper shoes.

  • Faithz

    Everybody is dressed to Impress. Some of the Outfits was really loud colors though.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Tiffany Haddish
    I actually like the dress. Colors and all BUT not the shoes. The shoes do not go at all.

  • Fire & Ice

    Jenifer is too much. I love it ????

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You make a good point.
    It stems from Leslie being bullied online & being called ugly.

  • Rayne

    I love all this f the colors on tiff and Leslie looks damn good too!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Susan Lucci was different Sandra. Not that a Daytime Emmy is not great. But its for a whole different genre of television.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Regina King
    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • FukkFolks2018

    Leslie is WEARING that suit do you hear me??? She better GO

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't hate either of them, but I think they are both very UNfunny. Just loud. Leslie's humor, in my opinion, is the self deprecating kind. Tiffany is stereotypical loud, ignorant funny.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Jenifer Lewis
    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Susan Lucci
    LOVE LOVE LOVE ERICA KANE.
    But the difference is obvious. There were still all white women being nominated AND winning.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sometimes I forget that Jenifer is bipolar then she reminds us.

  • Tammie Reed

    Tiffany love yah girl but PLEASE find a stylist, lawd have mercy! I know she probably felt beautiful in that dress but NOT Emmy worthy at all. From the hair to the black platform shoes to the accessories...I'm like wow, who styled this lady!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    This is why a woman will never be president.
    *sad*

  • Kanyade

    congrats to Regina King and to the others of US who won because of their talent.

  • Kanyade

    complete different genres and CALIBER of work.

  • wonderwoman

    Yes, best dress of the night. The after party dress was???. It was purple. Love them.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im still riding for Tiff. Doesnt negate any of the stuff that is being said about her though as of late. Loud and others were looked over who have been in biz much longer than her... for her to have gotten these big breaks. Case in point....Leslie been on the scene since mid 1980s. Tiff came on scene in mid 2000s. That is a 20 year gap. Leslie is just NOW on the forefront the past 5-10 years. Doing comedy since we were KIDS.

  • WhoKnew

    Congrats to Regina King - even though as I was listening to the radio on the way to the grocery store - they said Regina Hall had won.

    It's a no dawg (you know the voice) for Tiffany. This chick simply is not funny nor talented and I watched 5 minutes of the SNL show for which this award apparently was bought and I was like you have got to be kidding. In other news, I see Tiffany is wearing her "bust a bish in the head" shoes. I think they carry those joints at Nordstrom's. I get why Susan Lucci never won an emmy. She was not a good actress after all those years. But we live in the day and age now of pay for play and some damned body bought that award.

    Leslie looks good. Tracee looks like bozo the clown in that pink bedsheet. Justin and Jessica look good. Didn't recognize Thandie Newton. She's starting to look old. Like Jane Pittman old. Chrissy Tiegen has a head the size of the moon and it makes her shapeless body look even weirder. Rocsi looks nice and is ageless. Jennifer Lewis needs to sit her old ass down somewhere. Everything does not have to be political. Go. Have a good time.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Everytime I see her now I immed. think about FLINT aint FIXED!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlVqoiJ1SHY

  • Tammie Reed

    I like Leslie's Christian Siriano suit, she looks very nice! Yara and her mom are the cutest and Issa looked really nice as well. Thats all I got!

  • WhoKnew

    Thank you. Well said.

  • TriniHarlem

    We need our own elite televised award show. I'm over that mentality that coming to these types of shows is indicative of you making it. I love seeing us on the carpet however I'm over us caring about their hand me downs when our talent supersede.

  • WhoKnew

    Leslie does look very nice.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Shut up, Rodrick2011!
    LOL

  • WhoKnew

    Tracee has on the fitted bed sheet and the flat bed sheet wrapped together.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Jennifer Lewis needs to sit her old ass down somewhere. Everything does not have to be political.
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Oh wow on this part. I think Jenifer Lewis, an original ORIGINAL DreamGirl, has earned the right to wear anything she wants to any function she pleases. To be honest the Emmy's kind of beneath anyone who has Broadway on their resume. IJS. Potato and Potatoe I guess tho

  • Renee26

    Whew...where to start

    Tracee Ellis Ross should have asked Thandie how to pull off an all pink dress. Thandie looked regal.

    I like Scarlett's dress eventhough it reminds me of a prettied up mummy wrap... Jessica Biel on the other hand failed...she looks like one of those old school toilet paper covers you'd see on the back of somebody's grandma's toilet.

    Chrissy's neckline is troubling for her face ?

  • Bashi22

    Tiffany is a hit or miss in the fashion department sorry that girl probable wear two perfect dress for the red carpet since she's on

  • Trace da Ace

    ere'body looked aight.....thats all I got....

  • RICHIE_RICH

    How you forget A Bassett ? she shut it down at 60

  • Bashi22

    Chrissy cheeks are super puffy like it's too much filler or what, I'm not a hater she as great personality but not beautiful

  • FukkFolks2018

    Et tu?

  • Dee

    If I were gay, Leslie could hit it.

  • Renee26

    The Anderson's looked beautiful and classy... Ryan lookwd stunning; I see you Sterling!

    Nobody bothered to tell Ru that an ink pen busted on his blazer... How rude

    Are Issa's toes touching the rug??

    This is the absolute first time I didn't feel Yara's look... Her mom is shaaarp tho

  • Dee

    ????

  • hottlanta

    Tiffany's dress is stolen from the movie maghagony. I remember her twirling in that dress and those colors in one of the scenes.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I loved Leslie's suit

  • FukkFolks2018

    I agree and disagree sis. We have one. NAACP Image Awards. Thing is we dont hold it in high regards. As a people. Comes to find out its been around since the late 60s, and at one point was nationally televised. But we stopped watching and they slapped it on cable. So if we do get something or something else...it needs to be supported.

  • Bashi22

    The Anderson looked very Beautiful his wife is tone perfectly. I need to hit the gym

  • Karen Brady

    Seven Seconds was soooooooooooooo good and RK deserved the award. Tracee looked like a ridiculous pink clown and that's just one reason you didn't win. And you're my girl so I'm sorry. You do not have to show up to things trying to channel your mother. Yay for The Crown as that and Seven Secconds are the only programs of all of those nominated that I watch. Betty White was cute and I am happy as fuk for Henry Winkler aka The FONZ even though I don't know what his show is or that he was even on a show. Nice tribute to the folks who passed on using Aretha's song and what was up with all the music the band played all night? It was STRICTLY CLASSIC R&B! Stylistics, Delfonics, I was here for it but I did not like that there was so much 'racial' comedy. When was it stated that it's all cool if in jest and if we participate? I don't recall that. Oh I also liked Michael Che going around giving out Emmys to our fave peeps :-). Kadeem said he keeping his shyt!

  • Sassie

    I like the dress Tiff has on, but she was WAY off with those black platform heels. Just NO.

  • Sassie

    Yep, Leslie's suit was VERY nice...and her hair was nice this time, too, LOL

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Go to lunch ???

  • Fire & Ice

    I luv her. The one she did with Brandy a few years back was hilarious. Don't want nobody f*king with me in these streets ???

  • Dowoop

    Your comment has me rolling.

  • Tammie Reed

    Classy look, perfect for her skin tone too!

  • Bashi22

    lol

  • Sassie

    I am rolling at Chrissy has a head the size of the MOON...god DAMN that was funny, LOL

  • PhillyFacts

    Looks like a clown dress, or a deflated hot air balloon to me.

  • Wreckognize Game

    That Grecian style dress has been around for a long time. I've seen this dress in every color now. ?

  • Sassie

    Leave my auntie Jennifer alone, LOL

  • Sassie

    I liked her hair and makeup this time and I can get with the dress, but who in the fuck told her black platform shoes would work with a rainbow dress?

  • Sassie

    Neither Leslie or Tiffany are funny. Period.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Well, she is sleeping with one of my fav R&B crooners Joe. I didn't like her before but now I hate her. ?

  • hottlanta

    The guy from black panther was robbed for hosting SNL. His black jeopardy skit was hella hilarious. How many of us are saying Karen don't bring your raisins in the potato salad 2 the cookout. That is what katt was talking bout.

  • Sassie

    I heard she was a jumpoff to many in the industry, so u may be on to something asking "who did she sleep with"

  • Bashi22

    For me her dress was too loud like a Caribbean Carnival parade on Eastern Parkway Brooklyn New York City. Unless she's promotion gay rights it's or she copying Lupita Oscar dress she wore it's the same silhouette. Lupita dress is a classic colour.

  • Kimocha

    I haven't liked ANYTHING that Tiffany wears YET... Her style issa NO for me.... And I like how Jennifer Lewis is trying to make a statement with her Nike gear....

  • Guest

    What is going on on her shoulder? Otherwise, nice dress.

  • Bashi22

    Regina King does keep in shape

  • Miss3rdWard

    Everything Tiffany Haddish wears is dumb. I can't even think of a colorful, comedic, way to describe it... it's just DUMB. Smh.

  • Renee26

    Was it tragic then too??

  • FukkFolks2018

    That was my fave before this one lmaoooo. Her, Bran, and Roz Ryan

  • Kimocha

    I agree... She definitely needs a new stylist.... Smh

  • iWasteTime

    I can't with the Jennifer Lewis slander!
    She can do, say or wear just about anything she wants.
    She's earned and deserves!

  • FukkFolks2018

  • Hill Candy

    I concur. Apparently she does not have a stylist. she dressing out her own closet.

  • WhoKnew

    Okay, I'll give your play auntie Jennifer a pass. LOL.

  • Miss3rdWard

    Facts. It's UGLY.

  • Coy little wink

    I get the impression she's cheap...

  • WhoKnew

    i never said anything about what Jennifer was wearing. My comment was why make everything political. Go and have a good time and give the politics a break. Save that for another time and another place. That's all.

  • Wreckognize Game

    No, Diana rocked that dress

  • datjerk

    She does no wrong in my eyes! No weapon formed against Jennifer will ever prosper.

  • TriniHarlem

    We need better for lack of a better word than the NAACP. NAACP is great but that's not what I'm going for. Us not holding it in high regard was in my thought process which is why I said elite televised. Hell I don't have the money or connection but I want it lol.

  • FukkFolks2018

    NAACP was elite until folks stop supporting it. In order for it to be elite, folks have to actually watch it. Its how the network justifies paying for it to air. Sponsors/ie commercials equal money. They not buying in if the viewership isnt there. Period. And actually I think Bill Cosby helped have something to do with it being on NBC a time or two. He has the connects and the money. Made it happen for us and the ratings got it slapped back on cable.

  • Li-Wright

    Jenifer is so funny. Did anyone see her at Aretha's funeral? She was having a blast. Love Tiff's dress and that she's paying homage to her homeland.

  • Miss3rdWard

    THIS. I can appreciate the success of both of them, but they're not funny in what I would consider a "talented" way. They both just play into stereotypes. Tiffany, although, I love the "characters" she's played, is basically just playing herself in every role - loud, hood chick. Leslie just plays any black woman with the self-deprecation of a champ. Every time I see her, I remember the quote from The Color Purple, "you, sho is ugly!"

  • Li-Wright

    That dress is in homage to her homeland.

  • Li-Wright

    Yawl just don't like Tiff. Nothing she does or wears will win you over LMAO

  • Miss3rdWard

    I hate that she's been bullied online, but she's definitely not pretty nor average.

  • Li-Wright

    No, those are the colors of her father's homeland.

  • Li-Wright

    Tiff's dress was designed with the colors of her father's homeland FYI.

  • tia

    Yasshira and her mom are both too cute!

  • Rayne

    Tailored to perfection on her. It is nice!

  • hottlanta

    Diana got a dress out of those colors. That was the first time l saw it.

  • missmiami305

    I remember the Susan Lucci saga. She must have pissed someone off back in the day.

  • TriniHarlem

    I understand all that and always get on us for not supporting so I'm there with you in terms of the history of it all. I want better than the NAACP with looking at how they did it. I remember when it was a big deal out telethon etc. In essence I'm saying we need to get back to that but better because we know the pitfalls of not supporting or getting greedy and selling out etc.

  • Logan Roberts

    Tiffany can't dress, another Beyonce.

  • Li-Wright

    On the Emmys red carpet Monday, Tiffany Haddish explained that her custom rainbow-colored Prabal Gurung dress was inspired by the Eritrean flag — but social media users were quick to compare the gown to something more, well, elementary.

  • Kimocha

    You're right... She's annoying to me.

    Black heels with that multi-colored striped dress is throwing me off for some reason....

  • isaiit

    Why in the world with that colorful a$$ dress would she choose to wear black especially when she has the means to have any color. Gold shoes would have been best IMO. They would make that dress pop a little more. She reminds me of my old friend. She always had the latest trends on but never knew how to style them right. Funny thing is no one could tell her she didnt look fly... She didnt...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker... #TeamPetty

  • supastar

    I thought the same thing. I personally think she needs a new stylist.

  • Quitedeliteful

    My favorite is Issa Raye. She looks really good I love the pastel jumper with the train and her makeup is beautiful...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol...why did I think the sentence was going to end with you liking her. Loo

  • Tyranny

    Agree. Him and Sterling K. Brown's were the best skits last year. I think Gal Gadot was good too. Tiffany's was one of the worst. I just don't understand how she won.

  • Logan Roberts

    I liked Angela Bassett, Joey King, Sterling & his wife, Marsai Martin & Marcus Scribner (from Blackish). It was more misses than hits.

  • Tyranny

    She wasn't funny, and it exposed her lack of acting ability. I don't get it. One of the worst episodes of the season.

  • supastar

    Tiffany is so humble. I hope she keeps that same energy years to come.

  • Quitedeliteful

    True. They both staying in shape and looking good.

  • WhoKnew

    So I made a comment saying that Jennifer Lewis need to sit her ass down and stop politicizing everything and some took issue with that saying that she can wear what she wants. Clearly my comment was glazed through because I never said a thing about what she was wearing.

    My point is the Emmy's is not the place for politics and it seems that more and more people are trying to make it a political platform. I heard a snip-it from the red carpet when Jennifer said she was "protesting" in support of CK. If you want to discuss Kaep and the politics thereof go on MSNBC or CNN. But when you go to the Emmys you should be going to support your colleagues, your art and have fun.

    My point was totally missed so here it is plainly. If Judge Judy got on stage and adjudicated someone's divorce during the Emmy's that's the wrong platform for that. You handle that in a court room. Another example is Mychal Kendricks who formerly played for the Cleveland Browns but was recently charged with "insider trading" and released and suspended by the NFL. However, while his appeal of his suspension is pending, he was allowed to play with the Seahawks last night. So after making a sack or some other play, the announcer says that was a pretty good play by Kendricks even though he is going to jail. That was wrong. That man was there to play football not have his personal business announced on live TV during a game like that. The Commissioner's office needs to have a strongly worded conversation with him about that. It was simply the wrong platform. I hope this clears up my point.

  • hi-liter

    Leslie Jones looked better than a lot of the other ladies, including Tiffany Haddish. I HATE she wore black shoes with that dress. I like the Nike gear on Jennifer Lewis. Been seeing women wearing Nike halter tops with skirts and dressing Nike gear up.

  • Minx Mosaic

    Katt can take a knee to Tiffany all he wants but she still isn't funny just loud and silly. And I hope if he apologized, it was only for the "sleeping with white men" comment because everything else he said can be proven by popular consensus.

  • Renee26

    Hmmmm better yet still tragic lol

  • Renee26

    ? ? ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    All of it. And Will say I applaud those above who went to both. Tiffany won at both. I love how she goes to everything. Even if she isn't nominated lol. If she gets invited she is there. A lot of others too. Kerry Washington normally goes to both. Dope. Support your own folks too

    My point is the Emmy's is not the place for politics and it seems that

    I didn't read anything else you posted because WE need to use every platform we can to make a statement. WE don't get many so we have to take what we can and make what we can.

    Her shoes should've been Gold or some glittery clear heels.

    I think ppl lost interest when they discovered the black boy was gay.

  • T Willis

    The makeup, hair, accessories (or lack of) is hurting the ensemble too. Tiffany dresses too basic. And I’m upset that she paid someone to style this outfit. I can do better on a much a smaller budget.

  • T Willis

    It looks cheap. Like something you’d find in a Rainbow or some other thrift store. The meaning behind the dress is beautiful, but the dress itself is not.

  • T Willis

    Beyonce was a former designer, is a millionaire, and has access to some of the best designers in the world.... it’s totally not a fair comparison ??????

  • T Willis

    How do you define “elite”? Exclusive? Wealth driven? What criteria are you trying to create? That’s what we first need to establish. Then, we need to figure out how all the other organizations, that are owned and operated by US, are failing to meet said criteria.

    Every awards season we hear the same damn arguments. Black folks need to do this, we need to stop supporting whitey... blah, blah, blah.... Truth is, we don’t need “another..” anything. We have a lot of businesses in the industry. The problem is our wealth is not connected to our community, because our “community” is non-existent. We need to focus less on trying to create businesses for the sake of trying to outdo “whitey”. Our strength has always been in our connectedness to one another. Somewhere in the last 40-50 years, we allowed that connectedness to be broken and disenfranchised. Now, we have our “brothers” and our “sisters” ignoring each other on the jobs, or trying to fight each other on the streets. And for what? Some community dique? Some flashy chain? We, as a group of disenfranchised black peoples lol, need to regroup and re-prioritize cause these other ethnicities are surpassing us economically and on a global scale. Meanwhile, the bulk of our people are experiencing record highs in unemployment and student debt. We now how have more black millionaires than ever, yet, we are still at the bottom of the economic totem poll.

    Connectedness is what we need.

    Rant over lol.

    I love what everyone is wearing. Tracy Morgan look ridiculous. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Issa’s look entirely. LOVE LOVE LOVE Leslie Jones pant suit. LOVE LOVELOVE Tiffany Haddish dress and that photo with her twirling it or whatever. It looks like a beautiful hot air ballon.

    Facts. He told no lies and Tiffany and the rest know it. If you got any white people liking you for any reason it’s because they don’t feel threatened by your blackness.

    I don't care if Bey owned the world, she.cant.dress.

  • Karen Brady

    Oh no! No season 2? Damn!

  • Anji

    Thanks. I produced this award show a long time ago. Felt very good we could celebrate our greatness. It never got numbers though.

  • Anji

    I produced a few. A small number of celebs and volunteer artists busted asses to create something for us by us. Most Black celebs in Hollywood reject elitism. To each...

  • Anji

    Amen...

    I've been in the biz for over 40 years. Hollywood is proud of being political in all things and events. Even in it's history when folk were blacklisted. We like it like that.

    Why?

    Women pick other women apart especially their appearance.

    I could only image what every day would be like if Hillary were president.

    Did her shoes match her pantsuit?......blah blah blah!!

  • EMILY POST

    Maybe the joke is that they gave Tiffany Haddish a emmy and we are still waiting for someone to name a joke that she has told....... She won an emmy and all she does is portray the typical ghetto stereotype on steroids that the non black casting directors tell all the full black chicks to act like in auditions... LOL now that is funny

  • shay2shaymd

    I had to scroll up to see Tracy Morgan's pic. That outfit is hilarious. Thanks for the laugh.

  • shay2shaymd

    Well said!

    I'm going to need Tiffany Haddish to find a new stylist asap! I think she is a very attractive woman but her hair and clothes always look horrible.
