Patricia Arquette spoke lovingly of her sister, Alexis Arquette, who passed away from complications from AIDS in 2016 . "In my heart, I'm so sad," she said as she fought back tears. "I lost my sister Alexis. And that trans people are still being persecuted." Patricia won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in The Act. "And I'm in mourning every day of my life, Alexis. And I will be for the rest of my life, for you, until we change the world so that trans people are not persecuted."


Ben Affleck's ex-girlfriend, Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, looked like she almost fell on stage. While Lorne Michaels was accepting the award for the Best Variety Sketch Series, Shookus, in a bright blue dress, was standing behind him and teetered on her high heels, almost losing her balance. Shookus and Affleck broke up but she moved on to date Jon Hamm, also a presenter at the Emmys.
