12 Emmys Moments That Will Literally Make You Stand Up And Scream

Mmmmohmygod "Game of Thrones" just won everything!

It was the best times (The Amys), it was the worst of times (ugh, predictability) -- it was the 2015 Emmys.

This year's Emmy Awards were one for the history books, and no, we're not exaggerating. "Game of Thrones" made history -- and became the first series with dragons in its main cast to win Outstanding Drama Series -- and Viola Davis because the first black woman to win the Emmy for best actress in a drama series. Oh, and "Modern Family" didn't take home a single Emmy! Like we said, it was a history-making evening.

Another Emmys may have come and gone, but we've rounded up all of the moments that had us up, out of our seats and literally screaming:

  1. Andy Samberg's opening musical opening.

    In case you haven't noticed, there's way too much TV -- and especially good, must-watch TV -- these days. Andy Samberg's hilarious opening sketch brilliantly highlighted this epidemic with a super catchy song-and-dance number. Samberg went into a bunker to catch up on -- well, everything. When he emerged, having not showered in a year, he proudly proclaimed, "I watched every show!" over and over again. Cut to an amazing "Les Miserables" bit featuring Will Forte as Javert, which was just as amazing as you'd think it was. If Peak TV looks like this, then we're OK with it.

  2. The Amys

    We know Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are working on a screenplay, but is it too late to petition for Amy Poehler to join the squad? The Amys were only onstage together for a few brief moments, but they were honestly the best thing to ever happen to the Emmys. We hear the Oscars are looking for a hosting duo...

  3. Jill Soloway winning Outstanding Directing, Comedy Series.

    There's still a lot to be done when it comes to diversity in Hollywood, but the Emmys -- and in particular, Soloway's win for Outstanding Directing for "Transparent" -- moved the needle forward, and she used her acceptance speech to thank her Moppa for coming out and inspiring #Transparent. She also used it as a platform to talk about trans issues in America. "We have a trans civil rights problem," she said, before bringing awareness to the The Trans Equality Bill.

    Fellow Emmy winner Jeffrey Tambor -- for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for "Transparent" -- dedicated his win to the transgender community. "Thank you for your patience," he said. "Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for letting us be part of the change."

  4. Amy Poehler still doesn't have an Emmy.

    HOW, WORLD?! HOW DOES THIS WOMAN NOT HAVE AN EMMY BY NOW? The woman has 17 Emmy nominations and no wins. We all have to live with this.

  5. Taraji P. Henson shouting "YAASSSS" when Regina King won her Emmy.

    We are now shipping Taraji and Regina as BFFs for life, FYI. That's a sisterhood we want to be a part of. King's win for "Outstanding Supporting Actress" for "American Crime" was kinda out of left field, but for a veteran badass like King, this was so well deserved. Henson knew it. We all knew it. #Justice4Southland.

  6. Andy Samberg giving us all his HBO Now log in info.

    Thanks, boo! Email:; Password: password1. That info is 100 percent real and it actually works. In fact, we're watching "Project Greenlight" right now... sorry, Emmys.

  7. That time the Emmys spoiled every season finale ever.

    Oh, you wanted to binge-watch "Sons of Anarchy" and "Parenthood" on Netflix? We hope you don't mind being spoiled by the Emmys because that's exactly what happened when the show paid tribute to all of the shows that celebrated series finales this season. [SPOILER] and [SPOILER] and [SPOILER] die in the end?! No. Effing. Way. Thanks for ruining our lives, guys.

  8. Uzo Aduba bringing us to tears.

    The "Orange Is the New Black" star should give a masterclass in acceptance speeches. There wasn't a single person who wasn't moved by Aduba's emotional speech.

  9. "Game of Thrones" makes history!

    "Game of Thrones" kingslayed the drama categories at this year's Emmys. The HBO series now holds the record for most Emmys by a show in one year with 12 Emmys, including a win for Outstanding Supporting Actor, Peter Dinklage and Outstanding Drama Series -- NBD. BURN IT DOWN, KHALEESI.

  10. Jon Hamm finally wins his damn Emmy.

    "Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. There has been a terrible mistake, clearly," Hamm opened his speech. And it only got better from there. Remarkably, this is Hamm's first Emmy win for his portrayal of Don Draper on "Mad Men." Better late than never, Academy.

  11. Viola Davis drops major truth bombs about WOC in Hollywood.

    "The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity," Davis said in her emotionally charged acceptance speech for Lead Actress in a Drama Series. "You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there." Her speech was really something special.

    Did we mention that Davis just became the first black woman to win the Emmy for best actress in a drama series? Her speech was more than emotional -- it was pretty damn important.

  12. Tracy Morgan makes an amazing Emmys comeback.

    There wasn't a dry eye in the house when Morgan walked out on stage to present "Game of Thrones" with its Outstanding Drama Series Emmy. Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash over a year ago. Tonight (September 20) marked the comedian's first public appearance since the accident. The "30 Rock" star took the time to thank the doctors and nurses who aided in his recovery -- and crack a few jokes. Nope. We're not crying -- you're crying.
