Andy Samberg is a first time host of the Primetime Emmys, but less than a minute in, we knew he was an awesome choice. He fulfilled our greatest hope of opening with a musical number, and it just happened to be on one of our favorite topics: binge-watching. Samberg showed he was the only eligible host because he dedicated himself to locking down in a bunker and watching every imaginable television show, from Scandal to the countless shows involving “Wives” in the title (I never realized there were so many…).
And what’s a musical number without star cameos? We were treated to tons of them, including Castle’s Nathan Fillion, The Odd Couple’s Yvette Nicole Brown, Fresh Off the Boat’s Randall Park, Mad Men’s John Hamm, Scandal’s Kerry Washington, Last Man on Earth’s Will Forte (in a Les Miserables homage), Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk and many more.
And let’s not forget to mention ending it with a dance number. It was glorious all around.
