Emmys: “Thrones,” “O.J.,” And Maggie Smith

68th Primetime Emmy Awards, Press Room, Los Angeles, USA - 18 Sep 2016To be honest I barely watched the broadcast: I’ve stopped watching “Game of Thrones,” a big winner (some of the cast are pictured), and I had zero interest in “The People vs. O.J. Simpson,” the other successful honoree. There were snubs and surprises (list of them here). Even though Maggie Smith never shows up at these things, her zillionth win was no surprise. As the writer Mark Harris tweeted: ‘It’ll be complicated but I feel sure they’ll find a way to give it to Maggie Smith for “Downton Abbey” next year too.’ [photo: Jim Smeal]
