The 69th Emmy awards were last night and like any well-adjusted millennial, I spent the whole time on twitter. While I was live-tweeting the event for the Plucky Media twitter, I saw some amazing tweets. In case you missed out on any of the action, here are 10 🔥Fire🔥 Emmy’s tweets from last night.
1.☕ Straight Up Tea on the Industry☕
If Reese & Nicole, 2 Oscar winners, are saying THEY weren't getting good roles, one can only imagine the road for LGBTQIA actors of color.

2. Remembering That Major Height Difference
Acting on Big Little Lies was so good that it apparently made me forget that Nicole Kidman is a foot and a half taller than Reese #EMMYS

Want More 🔥 Tweets?
We have all the tweets we did last night on this Storify if you want to check out all the good stuff. If you wanna keep up with our twitter, don’t hesitate to give us a follow, especially because that way you’ll never miss a post.
A Note: We know that content organizations using tweets of other people as a way to make money on other people’s work is pretty much awful. It’s standard practice and we know tweeting is unpaid work. At the same time, we also love to celebrate voices that need to be amplified and twitter is an integral part of the experience and we wanted to share these. Right now, Plucky Media has nothing in the bank, but we don’t want that to be forever. After paying our contributors, the next step is definitely if we do tweet dumps like this is to pay authors for the tweets we post.
If you want to support that future, don’t hesitate to drop us a tip!
