I'm still no over the fact that either Handmaids tale or Killing Eve for Outstanding Writing didn't win.

Thanks for the tip on Killing Eve fratpack - haven't seen it... just found the description:

Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a desk-bound MI5 officer, begins to track down talented psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), while both women become obsessed with each other.

Sounds cool - gonna watch.

I've been browsing the Emmys red carpet pics and they're a yawn-fest - everyone looks so samey and Matric dancey. There's nothing new or unique, just the same old outfits everyone's been trotting out at award ceremonies for years.
