The Best Emmys 2018 Presenters
The Emmys 2018 were an ultimate favorite this year. And that too, for a lot many reasons including the wide list of nominations and winners. But most importantly, the fine presenters this year set the stage to fire. Although the hosts was for the night, Michael Che and Colin Jost attempted their best for a great hosting, these presenters clearly won with their time on the stage. And made the whole ceremony even harder to forget. Without these presenters, Emmys 2018 would have lost half of its spirit, and probably a lot less fun to watch.
Best Presenters For Emmys 2018
The list for best presenters at the 70th Prime Time Emmy Awards is really long. But owing to the heart-winning performances delivered by these celebrities, it’s impossible to shorten it. And without ranking them in order, here are the ones who absolutely stole the show.
Australian comedian, Hannah Gadsby clearly knows what she is doing. And that does not go with her role in the Netflix stand-up special Nanette, but also with the Emmys 2018 stage. With those skills, Hannah Gadsby, a presenter for this ceremony achieved what the hosts failed to. In fact, a lot many people on Twitter are actually wondering why she was not chosen to host the Emmys this year. She was selected to present the trophy for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. She began with saying that nobody gets the sweet gig, and that she does not like men. But quickly added that she was joking. With her exceptional comedic timing, she lit the ceremony which was already getting dull as the hosts presented somewhat an SNL commerical. But all through her jokes, she advocated for the LGBT community and also women who are sexually assaulted.
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg took the stage at Emmys 2018 together to present the award for outstanding directing in a comedy series. But the whole episode got a lot more unique and interesting when Sandra Oh started speaking. And that too, right from the heart. As she ripped open the envelope, she suggested that she and Andy Samberg should make up the winner themselves. Then she announced that the winner was La La Land, referencing the slip-up from Oscars last year. But soon, both of them managed to piece together the card, and announce the real winner much to audience’s excitement.
Jimmy Corden- the host for The Late Late Show With Jimmy Corden was also another presenter at Emmys 2018. And he did it well as everybody remained on their toes all throughout the time he took the stage. His tone was completely different from those who came before him. As Betty White exited the stage before him with some heartfelt words, he joked that it was the 96 year old actress who resolved the dispute between Tom Arnold and Mark Burnett. However, his jokes got more cringe-worthy when he joked that it was an #EmmysSoWhite and that’s because most of the awards given before he took the stage were to white people. Although the joke won a few laughs, thankfully right afterwards Regina King won her Emmy.
Leslie Jones and RuPaul
Leslie Jones and RuPaul shared the stage as they presented the award for outstanding lead actress in a limited series. Together, the two were even more fabulous than they are on television regularly. Plus, they had some special Drag Race-themed tete-a-tete planned. RuPaul began with saying that they both had something common. And it was their love for Drag Race. Since the show was very fierce, they decided to give all the nominees a drag name. And these were Sir lady Alec Baldwin, Miss Johnson Leguizamo, Louie “The Tuck” Anderson, and Sandra Oh-No-She-Betta-Do! Their presentation was made more remarkable with Leslie Jones’ reaction when Regina King won the Emmy.
Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett
Tiffany Haddish and Angela Bassett presented the award for lead actress in a comedy series. And while doing that, the two honored the Black Panther film. And fans were super thrilled to see how the two looked at one another and then did the Wakanda salute. But that’s not the only reason why there presentation at Emmys 2018 is still being talked about. Angela Bassett was having some trouble with pronouncing the last name of the winner Rachel Brosnahan. But since Rachel was already in tears as she accepted her award, she did not make quite big a deal out of it.
Rick and Morty
The Emmys 2018 got super exciting as they got Rick and Morty to present an award. They actually had the animated characters which were voiced by Justin Roiland. And that’s how Rick and Morty were on the list of presenters for the ceremony to give away the award for Outstanding Reality Competition Programming.
With presenters like these, any award show would definitely become worth it!
