This past weekend, the Television Emmy Awards for Engineering Achievement took place, leading up to the main part of the awards, which will take place on September 18th. One of the most exciting moments of the ceremony was the presentation of the statuette to comedian Amy Poehler, who was nominated for an Emmy 17 times but had never won a single award before this year. The actress won the Best Guest Comedy Award for her performance on Saturday Night Live, where she performed with fellow co-writer and friend Tina Fey.
Amy Poehler starred in a huge number of issues of Saturday Night Live, starred in the comedy series about the everyday life of city officials "Parks and Recreation Areas", was the host of the Golden Globes, and also starred with Tina Fey in the comedy " Sisters. " In 2009, the actress won the MTV Movie Awards, and in 2014 - the Golden Globe.
The most successful Emmy show was Game of Thrones, which won nine statuettes. The creators of the series received awards for editing, art direction, best casting in a drama series, costumes, make-up (regular and prosthetic), sound, visuals and stunts.
In addition to Amy Poehler, the long-awaited award went to Ru Paul, drag queen and author of the great show "RuPaul's Drag Race", which we talked about this spring.
