69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Recap: All The Winners

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards just ended and man what a night it was for television fans! The Handmaid’s Tale cleaned house tonight and rightfully so! The man himself Donald Glover took home some solid wins today with his work on Atlanta. Master of None writers and actors Aziz Ansari & Lena Waithe took home the award for best writing in a comedy series making this the first win for a black woman in this category!
