Every awards show lives on two levels (at least). There's the one that airs, and then there's the one that leaves us scratching our heads, wondering what that was all about!
Rest easy, readers: We have all your 2015 Emmy Awards burning questions answered (to the best of our knowledge, at least) below. Check it out!
Why was it so easy being green?
Every year, there's some cause that catches the imagination of celebrities and leads to the proliferation of small pinned ribbons on their outfits. This year, green! The cause? The National Resources Defense Council, who are campaigning with a petition and on Twitter with #DemandClimateAction.
Still, viewers who didn't get the reference initially had us chuckling:
Did Andy Samberg really give us his HBO Now password?
He sure did! Noting that HBO CEO Richard Plepler had said he didn't mind password sharing, Samberg drove a truck through the loophole and gave out his login information for the streaming service. People raced to use it and change the profile:
But if you're trying to use KhaleesiFan3@emmyhost.com and password1 to access the site now, don't count on it: The site crashed soon after, and as of Monday morning the login returned an error message. Ah, well!
Why was everyone so sweaty?
If you noticed an extra sheen on your favorite stars both on the red carpet and indoors, you weren't alone. It was hot in Los Angeles, with temperatures nearly getting into the triple digits; reports of fainting were rife.
Allison Janney was clearly still feeling it inside; she accidentally took her pink blotter cloth up to the stage with her to accept her outstanding supporting actress Emmy!
How come Jon Hamm didn't walk the red carpet?
Probably because he didn't want to be asked 400 times about breaking up with his longtime love and occasional collaborator Jennifer Westfeldt. But he did give her a "thanks" once he won his best actor award for "Mad Men" toward the end of the night.
It was a historical night after all, wasn't it?
As you may have heard, Viola Davis made history as the first woman of color to earn a lead actress Emmy for a dramatic show. But "Game of Thrones" also set a record with 12 Emmy wins (including outstanding drama series) to make it the most-awarded show in a single year. Meanwhile, Uzo Aduba pulled off an unexpected historical milestone: She's now the only actress to have won an Emmy for the same character (Crazy Eyes in "Orange is the New Black") in both the comedy and the drama categories!
All in all, a night for the ages. Got any more questions you want answered? Let us know!
