THEY BROUGHT OUT BETTY WHITE to a standing ovation!!
— April (@ReignOfApril) September 18, 2018
Indeed, this year’s Emmy Award show was packed with wonderful moments. Betty White, the woman who has inspired millions with her work took her Lifetime Achievement ovation from the audience which seemed to be for a minute or so!
What pleased the eyes most is to witness Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson starting the opening number with Saturday Night Live. They even addressed the beautiful diversity of America with just one line before starting the opening piece, “So, diversity is not a problem in Hollywood anymore?”
Yes, The Emmys were one of the best awards shows this year. While we wait for the next year’s Emmys, we could watch this year’s Emmys for three, four, five times without getting tired!
