Instead of me rambling on, let me just show you the moments.
Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodiguez’s “Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical” acceptance speech:
Transparent creator Jill Soloway’s “Best Series” acceptance speech:
Transparent‘s Jeffrey Tambor’s “Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical” acceptance speech:
Common and John Legend’s “Best Original Song” acceptance speech for “Glory” from Selma (with the award presented by PRINCE!)
Margaret Cho as a North Korean military official (with some commentary from Clevver News)
