The Emmy Awards air this weekend on ABC, and in addition to our extensive thoughts on this year’s nominations, we thought it was time to recognize some of the good works that even the Academy didn’t want to honour. We did this for the Oscars, you may recall. While we’re looking forward to seeing rich, beautiful people pat each other on the back (like, actually), we’ve put together our own picks. Here are The 2016 Pop Culture Reference Awards for Excellence in Television or Something.
Best Use of a Tiny Girl Badass
Lyanna Mormont, showing the old dudes how it’s done on Game of Thrones.
Best Homage to a Bill Murray Movie
The “Fish Out of Water” episode of BoJack Horseman. How many friends am I going to lose if I start admitting out loud that I liked this episode more than Lost in Translation?
