Congratulations to Game of Thrones for winning Best Drama. I honestly wasn’t aware the #Emmys gave out awards for how much drama a show causes by sucking at the last minute.— Ben (@BenHowe) September 23, 2019
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is just 34. We got *decades* of great writing to come, at least until climate change really sets in.#Emmys— Charlotte Clymer ️ (@cmclymer) September 23, 2019
Heck yes to Fleabag, a show that made millions of women feel less alone, winning big at tonight's Emmy Awards. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius who deserves every single award and true happiness. #Emmys2019 pic.twitter.com/BM9tlWFR5Z— Sophie Vershbow (@svershbow) September 23, 2019
