Presenting The 73rd Annual Emmy Awards Winners

73rd emmy awards logo

The 73rd Annual Emmy Awards Winners were announced last night and I am happy to share the full rundown of the winners circle in this list below. We didn’t tune in to the program being broadcast because we were at a concert last night but we do know that the show was held in a very small space that was set up outside. It was also hosted by Cedric The Entertainer. Generally I am home to update this kind of posting as it happens but not this time around. I even forgot to program the DVR so I slacked something fierce. Now without any further adieu let’s see who won the Primetime Emmy Award…

Piercing Ken Thoughts: So as I mentioned up above I did NOT get to watch any of the broadcast and this is an awards show that I really like to tune into. I was working on some coverage for a Metal tour that was blasting through town over at The Gramercy Theatre and wasn’t home until very late but here we are. Isn’t it amazing that not a single major network went home with an award and only the streaming networks made good? Truth be told I only key into the superhero and monster stuff of late and was sad that none of those programs came home with anything but that won’t stop me from watching them. I have my hands full with all the wonderful content on Disney+ and Marvel Studios and I talk about that stuff almost incessantly on the PiercingMetal website. If you’re following any of our social networks for that side of the creative coin you know this already and if you aren’t aware then its high time for you to lend us some support. Feel free to let us know what you think about this awards show announcement down in the comments section as we always love to hear from the audience. Perhaps something you are devoted to got overlooked and I’d love to hear what you think. See you next time with something else, please stay safe out there.
