After accepting the Emmy for best actor in a comedy series for Transparent last night, Jeffrey Tambor said backstage: “I just hope there are more opportunities for transgender talent,” he said. “I would very much like to be the last cisgender male playing a transgender female. I think we are there now.”
What Jeffrey Tambor does in Transparent is unbelievable. Incredible deserving of his Emmy

The Voice won for Outstanding Reality Competition Series, Burnett tried to joke about Hillary Clinton complaining about how Kimmel was giving free airtime to Trump, but the joke bombed. Nobody wants to laugh with you, Mark Burnett.
