  • Sunday's Emmys is about winners, politics, a cheeky Colbert

The middle chunk of the Emmys had the fateful bore of Boston's Great Molasses Flood in 1919 - a slow but inevitable drag towards the finish, leaving exasperated viewers to wonder if anyone really cares who directs "Jimmy Kimmel Live" or which TV movie had the best writing before finally succumbing to protracted death. On Sunday, history broke all over the place, like the hearts across the nation during This is Us. Here are Variety's five takeaways from a long and lively Emmy campaign season.

As Sunday's ceremony showed, the entertainment business remains horrified by President Trump's casual jingoism and misogyny.

The 2017 Emmy season was nothing if not a glossy showcase of the wealth of female-led material that's thriving on television. And Hulu's The Handmaiden's Tale went laughing all the way to a historic six wins.

At the end of the evening, Big Little Lies winners Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman used the stage to press other Hollywood heavyweights to create more roles for women during their acceptance speech. The two joined forces to option Liane Moriarty's novel and worked with their reps at CAA to assemble it into a white-hot package that sparked a bidding skirmish in 2015. She also thanked Emmy victor Bruce Miller for writing "the most disturbing stuff".
