The 70th Prime Time Emmy Awards were spectacular in their own ways. And there is no way that we can not credit their success to these wonderful speeches that some of the most popular celebrities delivered at Emmys 2018. In fact, if anything, these speeches themselves deserve a separate Emmy. While some speeches were inspiring and touching, others were simply hilarious. But that does not make these best speeches any less than one another. And maybe, it’s these acceptance speeches who really decide the true winner for the night.
Best Speeches At Emmys 2018
Although categorizing the Emmy speeches might not be a very fine choice since everybody works equally hard to put forward their journey. But then again, some celebrities just conquered the night.
Regina King won the Lead Actress in a Limited Series for her Seven Seconds on Netflix. Although, she has two Emmy awards previously, winning at Emmys 2018 came as an utter shock. When she finally took the stage after her award, she said ‘Really’? And then added that she got lipstick on her dress and was trying to get it off. The trophy was not expected at all. And she said that’s exactly why she had nothing to say. However, she looked very overwhelmed. Regina King claimed that she felt floored, but still managed to gather herself up to conclude her speech. And while ending it, she cracked a joke in response to Michael Che who previously mocked how nobody except Republicans thanks Jesus.
Matthew Rhys won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at Emmys 2018 for his The Americans. What made his winning speech wonderful was his gratitude and appreciation towards everyone who was a part of the production team throughout the six seasons of the show. Moreover, he thanked his real life partner co-star Keri Russell. And claimed that it was this woman who got him the award, and who stood in front of him every morning and put up with him. To this, Russell joked that if he proposed to her on stage, she would punch him in the face. But this probably made Matthew Ryhs’ winning speech even more applaudable.
Alex Borstein won the Comedy Supporting Actress for her The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this year. And everything about her speech, right from her entry to the stage was simply fabulous. She made her entrance to pick her award by untying part of her gown. Interestingly enough, it was her wedding dress from almost 20 years ago. And as she did that, it was accompanied by sensational shimmy down the aisle. Her speech was probably wild, and so different that it would have never crossed your mind that a celebrity would say this on stage after winning an Emmy. Alex Borstein was triumphant about her character in the show. She revealed that she was not wearing a bra. And encouraged women to not pee on toilet seats. Finally, she sent a message to Amy Sherman-Palladino- the series creator saying that she loved and hated her.
For Emmys 2018, these might be the best speeches that we discovered. And looks like winners for next year have something to compete against.
