Before last night’s Emmys, co-host Michael Che promised, “We’re gonna come out on the wrong side of history for sure. We’re aiming toward it.” So did Che and his Saturday Night Live Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost, in a broadcast overseen by SNL creator and exec producer Lorne Michaels, shake it up? Diversity was the topic of the night, evident from the musical opener, a “we solved it” skit led by SNL’s Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson. The theme continued throughout the night, in ways obvious (“I’m only rooting for the black people,” said presenter Tracy Morgan) and subtle (“I don’t even believe in God, but I’m going to thank Her tonight,” said Thandie Newton in her thank you speech).  The co-hosts had lots of help from SNL performers past and present, and if you love SNL, you probably loved it. If not, it was a lot of SNL.

Sometimes it was just about the joy of winning. An exuberant Henry Winkler was a crowd pleaser as the first winner of the night for supporting actor in a comedy, Barry. “I only have 37 seconds, I wrote this 43 years ago…Kids, you can go to bed now, Daddy won!” said a visibly moved Fonz…. Winning back-to-back writing and directing awards for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Amy Sherman-Palladino was quick to credit, “The crew, the crew, the crew!” as well as performers. “My actors, God love you, you don’t flinch when I say it’s a six-page one,” said Sherman-Palladino…. Taking prom-posals to the next level in a moment that set Twitter alight, Glenn Weiss, winner of the directing Emmy for the Oscars, used his moment onstage to propose. “Do you know why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend?” Weiss asked his girlfriend during his speech. “Because I want to call you my wife,” then knelt to present his love with his late mother’s ring. (“There are so many men who didn’t win with an engagement ring in their pocket,” said Jost afterward.)

The AmericansMatthew Rhys won for actor in a drama, while Claire Foy took home the actress trophy. In comedy categories, Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan and Barry’s Bill Hader reigned.

Nike’s Colin Kaepernick “Just Do It” ad might have led to some smoking sneakers, but so far the company’s stock is rising. The former quarterback at the center of the NFL kneeling controversy, Colin Kaepernick, was featured in the second-most liked post in Nike’s history, and the ad generated $7.6 million in earned media, while Nike spent just $4 million in TV advertising through September 9, according to an analysis by Kantar Media. “The controversy not only bred commerce, but we view the influential consumers of the brand (think sneakerheads, GenZ, Millinnials) stand with Nike on this ad,” said Erinn Murphy, Piper Jaffray senior research analyst, in a note to clients.
