Moments from the Emmys: from the kiss of the night to the ovation to Christina Applegate's resilience

He Peacock Theater in Los Angeles (USA) hosted a gala of unleashed emotions this Monday. The American Television Academy presented the awards corresponding to 2023 and delayed to 2024 due to the strike of actors and writers at the 75th edition of the Emmy Awards, a ceremony that placed The Bear –Best Comedy Series – and Succession –Best Drama Series – like the big winners and that provided some great moments. There were bizarre kisses, speeches that ended in tears and an ode to nostalgia that softened many hearts.

There are evenings that can be summed up in a simple image. Just as you can remember the gratuitous punch that Will Smith he hit Chris Rock On that fateful night of the 2022 Oscars, you can think of the last Emmys as the night in which Matty Matheson interrupted the speech Ebon Moss-Bachrach to plant an almost eternal snort – it lasted five intense seconds -. Of course, this was not the only kiss of the night: the actors of Succession Brian Cox y Kieran Culkin They had a peak that did not leave anyone indifferent, just like what happened with the kiss that this last actor stole from his partner J. Smith Cameron -something more controversial-.

On the other hand, the ceremony also left a moment to remember: the great ovation received by the master of ceremonies, Christina Applegate. The performer, who announced in 2021 that she suffered from multiple sclerosis, received long applause when she took the stage. Many of the attendees stood up and the artist reduced the tension with sarcasm: “They are making fun of me, standing up when I have this disability.” Tears fell as she clung to her cane.

Classics like The Sopranos, Cheer, Ally McBeal, Grey's Anatomy o All in family They received some kind of tribute. Some of its protagonists attended the gala and even reinterpreted their roles on stage. And to this look at the past was added the In Memorial with the memory of one of the most painful losses of the past year, that of the actor Matthew Perry. The closing sounded like a version of I’ll Be There For Youthe mythical song of Friends.

Of course, the gala had exciting speeches. Among them, that of the great protagonist of the prize races: Jeremy Allen White. The actor, who is also on the agenda for his announcement with Calvin Klein and his kisses and cigarettes with Rosalía– picked up the award for Best Leading Actor in a Comedy for the glorious The Bear. “I want to dedicate this to my parents, I love you. Thank you to everyone who was by my side this year. You know who you are. Thank you for believing in me when even I didn't. This is for you,” she said.

Ayo Edebiri, her partner in the series, was awarded Best Supporting Actress. The actress also shared some words that, despite being somewhat accelerated, exuded emotion: “Thank you so much for loving me and letting me feel beautiful, black and proud of all that. It's probably not a dream to immigrate to this country and have your daughter say, 'I want to do impro!', but you guys are great.”
