Elisabeth Moss' Emmy Shoes Had a Hidden Message 'to the Patriarchy'

However you take it, it's a message the show's fans, and many others, will appreciate.

To escape the relentless tug-of-war, people have sought out television and movies, making streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu a place of comfort to escape the unrelenting onslaught of negative news happening in our actual reality. The show also earned a first-ever Emmy for Laura Dern, who was named best supporting actress in a limited series or movie, while Alexander Skarsgard won for best supporting actor in the show.

The best comedy series award went to Veep, a show about a fictional US politician.

But beyond the acting categories, women still remain underrepresented in writing and directing.

Shortly after, former press secretary Sean Spicer rolled his podium on stage and said, "This will be the largest audience to witness the Emmys, period, both in person and around the world". Kate McKinnon won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Alec Baldwin won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and the show took home a statue for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.
