The Most Unforgettable Moments in the History of the Emmy Awards

By  | 


Every year there is an Emmy Awards (or at least there has been since 1949), and every Emmy ceremony brings with it some iconic moments. They start on the red carpet and continue until the very last acceptance speech has been read – sometimes even after that. There might be viral moments that leave us talking every year, but there are some that go beyond memes and hashtags. There are those special milestones that are remembered years after the moment that took place.

The Emmys have been around almost as long as television itself. The very first awards were given out 69 years ago. Obviously, the awards show has grown in popularity since then and the format has changed some. But in that time, the show has created some truly special moments. Here are 17 Emmy Awards moments that go down in history.
